Daily ramblings

Something to ruminate on…

RUMI POEM

This being is a great house

Every morning is a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,

Some momentary awareness comes,

As an unexpected visitor.

 

Welcome and entertain them all,

Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,

Who violently sweep your house

Empty of its furniture.

 

Still treat each other honourably,

She may be cleaning you out for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,

Meet them at the door laughing,

And invite them in.

 

Be grateful for whoever comes,

Because each has been sent

As a guide from beyond.
