Poetic Wisdom: Soul Calling

“Sometimes you hear a voice ‘through
the door calling you, as a fish out of
water hears the waves, or a hunting
falcon hears the drum’s come back.
“This turning toward what you deeply
love saves you. Children fill their
shirts with rocks and carry them
around. We’re not children anymore.
“Read the book of your life which has
been given to you. A voice comes to
your soul saying, Lift your foot;
cross over; move into the emptiness
of question and answer and question.”
~Rumi translated by Coleman Barks from The Glance: Songs of Soul-Meeting
