POEMS: “REACHING HIGHER” by Rumi from Scribe for Love, Truth and Peace (re-blogged)

Beautiful dear Zaza!

Artful Writing

“We are brought thick desserts, and we rarely refuse them.

We worship devoutly when we’re with others.

Hours we sit, though we get up quickly after a few minutes, when we pray alone.

We hurry down the gullet of our wantings.

But these qualities can change,

as minerals in the ground rise inside trees

and become tree, as a plant faces an animal

and enters the animal, so a human

can put down the heavy

body baggage and

be light.”

from The Essential Rumi
