Whispers of Love

Lover whispers to my ear,
“Better to be a prey than a hunter.
Make yourself My fool.

Stop trying to be the sun and become a speck!
Dwell at My door and be homeless.
Don’t pretend to be a candle, be a moth,
so you may taste the savor of Life
and know the power hidden in serving.”

Rumi

  3. allow me to live a life moth
    Let me love fire of unknown
    allow me to die to candle
    knowing love kills me to
    give birth to newer being!
