The breeze at dawn…

September 15, 2013 | Nature

A little Rumi to start your Sunday morning. Mine started VERY early, so I’m trying to take some comfort in these words.

Maybe the breeze at dawn was just trying to tell me a secret. Here you go. Oh, and the photo is one of my favorite Jersey Shore sunrises from this August. Big red sun. 



The breeze at dawn

has secrets to tell you.

Don’t go back to sleep.

You must ask

for what you really want.

Don’t go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth

across the doorsill

where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open.

Don’t go back to sleep.  — Rumi
