Meditation by Jelaluddin Rumi

At night, I open the window
and ask the moon to come
and press its face into mine.
Breathe into me.
Close the word-door,
and open the love-window.

The moon won't use the door,
only the window.

—Jelaluddin Rumi, Muslim

From A Child's Book of Blessings and Prayers, collected by Eliza Blanchard and illustrated by Rocco Baviera.
