A Poem by Rumi I Wrote in My Pen Tonight

I added some stars. Not because I’m overjoyed with my day but because I thought you should have them. —Jade

Some Kiss We Want

by Rumi

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 against mine. 
Breathe into me.
Close the language-door and
open the love window. The moon
won’t use the door, only the window.

I’d read this poem aloud too, to listen
