The way wings should -Rumi

UnityAshInspirations, Poems

What will

our children do in the morning?

Will they wake with their hearts wanting to play,

the way wings

should?

 

Will they have dreamed the needed flights and gathered

the strength from the planets that all men and women need to balance

the wonderful charms of

the earth

so that her power and beauty does not make us forget our own?

 

I know all about the ways of the heart – how it wants to be alive.

 

Love so needs to love

that it will endure almost anything, even abuse,

just to flicker for a moment.  But the sky’s mouth is kind,

its song will never hurt you, for I

sing those words.

 

What will our children do in the morning

if they do not see us

fly?
