Tree of Awe

You must have shadow and light source both
Listen, and lay your head under the tree of awe.

***

This is not a day for asking questions,
not a day on any calendar.
This day is conscious of itself.
This day is a lover, bread, and gentleness,
more manifest than saying can say.

Thank you so much for sharing Rumi. I've been hearing of him for a long time and I am inspired now to finally buy my own book. Such great stuff, speaks to my core.
Thank you again.
