Silk Worm

I stood before a silk worm one day
And that night my heart said to me,
“I can do things like that, I can spin skies,
I can be woven into love that can bring warmth to people;
I can be soft against a crying face,
I can be wings that lift, and I can travel on my thousand feet
Throughout the earth
My sacks filled
With the
Sacred’

And I replied to my heart,
“Dear, can you really do all those things?”
And it just nodded
“Yes”
in silence.

So we began
and will never
Cease.

– Rumi
