The Silk Worm

The silk Worm

By Rumi

 I stood before a silk worm one day.
And that night my heart said to me,

"I can do things like that.
I can spin skies,
I can be woven into love that brings warmth to people;
I can be soft against a crying face,
I can be wings that lift,
And I can travel with my thousand feet throughout the earth,
my sacks filled with the sacred".

And I replied to my heart,
"Dear can you really do all these things?"

And it just nodded "yes".

So we began and will never cease .
