Very little grows on jagged rock.

Be ground.

Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up where you are.

Observe the wonders as they occur around you.

Don’t claim them.

Feel the artistry moving through

and be silent. Don’t grieve.

Anything you lose

comes round in another form.
Jalal ad-din Rumi

In your light

I learn how to love.

In your beauty,

how to make poems.

You dance inside my chest

where no-one sees you,

but sometimes I do,

and that sight becomes this art.

Jalal ad-Din Rumi
