  1. I so love Rumi!

    This is one of my favorite Rumi poems…

    BirdWings
    by Rumi

    Your grief for what you’ve lost lifts a mirror
    up to where you’re bravely working.

    Expecting the worst, you look, and instead,
    here’s the joyful face you’ve been wanting to see.

    Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes.
    if it were always a fist or always stretched open,
    you would be paralyzed.

    Your deepest presence is in every small contracting
    and expanding,
    The two as beautifully balanced and coordinated
    as birdwings.
