Earth's crammed with heaven ~ and every common bush afire with God... E.B.B.

Monday, June 10, 2013

Lord, the air smells good today, 
straight from the mysteries 
within the inner courts of God. 

A grace like new clothes thrown 
across the garden, free medicine for everybody. 

The trees in their prayer, the birds in praise, 
the first blue violets kneeling. 

Whatever came from Being is caught up in being,  
drunkenly 
forgetting the way back. 

Rumi (Lord, the Air Smells Good Today, 13th Century)
