Leader Resource 2: Rumi Poem

Part of Creating Home

Coleman Barks, translated and used with permission.

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.

Don't go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.

Don't go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth across the doorsill

worlds touch.

The door is round and open.

Don't go back to sleep.
