don’t go back to sleep


The breezes at dawn

have secrets

to tell you

Don’t go back to sleep!

You must ask for what you really want.

Don’t go back to sleep!

People are going


and forth

across the door-sill 

where the two worlds touch,

The door is round and open

Don’t go back to sleep.

– Rumi

  1. I always love poems whose form moves across the page. I feel like they are taking me on a journey…that probably sounds weird! lol
