Ode to Friday

“There is some kiss we want
with our whole lives,
the touch of spirit on the body.

Seawater begs the pearl to break its shell.

And the lily, how passionately it needs some wild darling.

At night, I open the window and ask the moon to come
and press its face against mine.
Breathe into me.

Close the language-door and open the love-window.

The moon won’t use the door, only the window.”

– Rumi (Persian, 1207-1273)
