    To The Beloved On The Last Night

    to Rumi In the dark a woman knits across the table, Her needles click softly & tenderly. The smell of roses are rich & sweet, The pulsing blood of moving air. The old pepper tree shudders & whispers, The full moon spills silver into my hands. Shadow, what do you know? The...

    Be With Those Who Help

    Be with those who help your being. Don’t sit with indifferent people, whose breath comes cold out of their mouths. Not these visible forms, your work is deeper. A chunk of dirt thrown in the air breaks to pieces. If you don’t try to fly, and so break yourself apart, you will...
