A full, winter moon shining on my neighborhood, searching for love windows and faces to press...


Some Kiss We Want

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.

~ Rumi. Translator: Coleman Barks
