Breathe into me


At night I open the window and ask
the moon to come and press its
face against mine.
Breathe into me.

~ Jalaluddin Rumi, excerpt from “Some Kiss We Want” in A Year with Rumi: Daily Readings by Coleman Barks

  11. The magic of the moon shadow cast over vast wilderness illuminates.. exposing…while my mind’s eye sees a high-lighted, section of the lake that looks like a spot on a map, inviting to explore, gifting an enchanting gateway to solitude, experience, memory…fueling, soul.
