“With freedom, books, flowers and the moon, who could not be happy”
Indeed. Small and large wonders around us when noticed and absorbed in their fullness can create happiness. There are thousands of other wonders but freedom, books, flowers and the moon are a really good start…..
There is some kiss we want with
our whole lives, the touch of
spirit on the body. Seawater
begs the pearl to break its shell.
And the lily, how passionately
it needs some wild darling! At
night, I open the window and ask
the moon to come and press its
face against mine. Breathe into
me. Close the language-door and
open the love window. The moon
won’t use the door, only the window.
From Soul of Rumi
by Coleman Barks
Ah, the full moon pulling at the inner spaces with its questions and mystery.
Tugging the tides.
Illuminating the darkness.
Searching the soul.
Waking me from a sound sleep to come outside and feel the moonshine.
basking in the night’s light.
Here is profound simplicity infused with magic.
Here is wonder.
“This place of mine never is entered by humans for conversation. Only by the mute moon’s light shaft which slip in between the trees.”
“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon and the truth.”
“The moon stays bright when it doesn’t avoid the night”
“Watching the moon, at midnight, solitary, mid-sky, I knew myself completely, no part left out.”
