Typewriter Spills Poetic Glimpses - and meets Rumi

Typewriter Spills Poetic Glimpses TSPG- and meets Rumi 

ODE 314:

those who don't feel this love
pulling them like a river, 
those who don't drink dawn
like a cup of spring water
or take in sunset like supper
those who don't want to change

let them sleep


this love is beyond the study of theology, 
that old trickery and hypocrisy.
if you want to improve your mind that way 

sleep on.

i've given up on my brain.
i've torn the cloth to shreds
and thrown it away.
if you are not completely naked, 
wrap your beautiful robe of words 
around you 

and sleep.

~ Rumi ~
