The breeze at dawn

The breeze at dawn has things 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 doorsill
                 where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
                 Don't go back to sleep.

-- Rumi

We love Rumi here but that's no surprise married to a Persian with a passion for poetry! Thank you for sharing xx
