words I wanted to tell you




"The most beautiful sea
                            hasn't been crossed yet.
The most beautiful child
                            hasn't grown up yet.
Our most beautiful days
                            we haven't seen yet.
And the most beautiful words I wanted to tell you
                            I haven't said yet.

They've taken us prisoner,
they locked us up:
                     me inside the walls,
                                 you outside.
But that's nothing.
The worst
is when people - knowingly or not -
carry prison inside themselves...
Most people have been forced to do this,

honest, hard-working, good people
who deserve to be loved as much as I love you."

- Nazim Hikmet






 THE SUN NEVER SAYS

Even
After
All this time
The sun never says to the earth,

"You owe
Me."

Look
What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the 
Whole 
Sky.


- Hafiz




"It has not rained light for many days.
The wells in most eyes look
Drought stricken."


- Hafiz





The feeling this morning that various droughts are coming to an end....that the beautiful things I've not yet said will be said. That they exist in me.

There are many months left of this winter to endure. But when the light shines in through the window, early or late, we can begin to take the side of hope.
