Don’t go back to sleep…

“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 door sill
Where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open

Don’t go back to sleep.”

–Rumi


And as another translation has it…….

The Wind at dawn
is the soul’s confidant,

Don’t find yourself asleep

This is the time to share
your greatest need.

Don’t find yourself asleep

From before-the-beginning to beyond-the-last,
the two eternities are present now

Don’t find yourself asleep

The door of the two worlds
is open now

Don’t find yourself asleep

Be Sociable, Share!
