the Sky

 

“The Sky where we live Is no place to lose your wings.
So love, love, Love”
~Hafiz

Better conditions

“Fear is the cheapest room in the house.
I would like to see you living
In better conditions.” ― Hafiz

We are here to encourage one another. Fear is not the place to live. No one would argue.

And so we must care for one another. There are things happening around us that feel beyond our control. Things we see and some we may not see. Fear of the unknown is a real experience. An experience people are quick to exploit.

This must stop. Fear will not win.

We are here to encourage one another so that we all may live free of fear.

Stay close

Stay close to anything
that makes you glad you are alive.

We Are Here

The table where you ate

For your sake we are here, not for our own.
Why should I ever complain about working in the shop where you did?
And the table, earth, where are you ate – isn’t that enough for me?
Your legs stretched out across every particle of space I might ever encounter;
the wise could build monuments here because of this.
If my senses were less dull the scent of your breath would enter me,
For you exhaled something of your soul into this world, and what you do does last.
For your sake, Beloved, we are here, not for our own,
no matter what directions our thoughts and actions may turn.
When dawn pulls the veil from my eye,
The scent of your breath will enter me forever,
and lift every sail.
