Open the Love Window

There is some kiss we want

with our whole lives,

the touch of Spirit on the body.

Sea water 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 into mine.

Breathe into me.

Close the language-door,

and open the love-window.

The moon won't use the door,

only the window.

- Rumi, the 13th Century Sufi Mystic and Poet. One of the most loved poet in America as well.
