Rumi stirs between my fingers

dancing on the edge of the flame on my candle lit tonight




“You are the sky my spirit circles in, the love inside love, the resurrection place.

Let this window be your ear. I have lost consciousness many times with longing for your silence, and your life-quickening smile…

You give attention to the smallest matters, my suspicious doubts, and the greatest…

I know these dancers,

Day and night I sing their songs in this phenomenal cage…

But what can stay hidden?

Love’s secret is always lifting its heas, out from under the covers,

“Here I am!””

-Rumi (pieces of “I have Five Things to Say”)
