A strange passion is moving in my head.
My heart has become a bird
which searches in the sky.
Every part of me goes in different directions.
Is it really so
that the one I love is everywhere?

Looking for Love, Rumi

Oh Beloved,
take me.
Liberate my soul.
Fill me with your love and
release me from the two worlds.
If I set my heart on anything but you
let fire burn me from inside.


Oh Beloved,
take away what I want.
Take away what I do.
Take away what I need.
Take away everything
that takes me from you.

Rumi

how long
can i lament
with this depressed
heart and soul


how long
can i remain
a sad autumn
ever since my grief
has shed my leaves


the entire space
of my soul
is burning in agony


how long can i
hide the flames
wanting to rise
out of this fire


how long can one suffer
the pain of hatred
of another human
a friend behaving like an enemy


with a broken heart
how much more
can i take the message
from body to soul


i believe in love
i swear by love
believe me my love


how long
like a prisoner of grief
can i beg for mercy


you know i’m not
a piece of rock or steel
but hearing my story
even water will become
as tense as a stone


if i can only recount
the story of my life
right out of my body
flames will grow

Rumi

This, is where the leprechauns live. This is where they hide, this is where their magic is made. These are the trees and that is the grass, this is the home. Happy St. Patricks Day my friends. Maybe the light we chase is the actual gold they horde. Maybe.

“Pursue not the outer entanglements; 
Dwell not in the inner void; 
Be serene in the oneness of things; 
And dualism vanishes by itself.”

Be like the single blade of grass. For she too, has been trampled on, mowed down, and hit with such bitterly cold stretches that she had to shut down to survive. Yet still she stands upright with dignity, knowing that she endures, and still she dances with the wind.

The eye you see is not
an eye because you see it;
it is an eye because it sees you.

Dear Frozen Yogurt,
You are the celery of desserts.
Be ice cream or be nothing.
Zero stars.
