What is the structure of lips…

What is the structure of lips
That take care of sounds
That can scream loud and long
That can wait and be silent?
Yesterday I was mastering words
And kissing lips lightly–
Their loving weakness
Now remains on my own
Hardworking lips,
Exacting, as if forever
My terrible punishment.

The stars come up spinning…

Posted in Rumi with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 9, 2010 by Mj Rains

The stars come up spinning
every night, bewildered in love.
They’d grow tired
with that revolving, if they weren’t .
They’d say,
“How long do we have to do this!”

God picks up the reed-flute world and blows.
Each note is a need coming through one of us,
a passion, a longing-pain.

Remember the lips
where the wind-breath originated,
and let your note be clear.
Don’t try to end it.
Be your note.
I’ll show you how it’s enough.

Go up on the roof at night
in this city of the soul.

Let everyone climb on their roofs
and sing their notes!

Sing loud!

–from EACH NOTE by Rumi
