that’s a wrap

The way is full of genuine sacrifice.

The thickets blocking the path are anything
that keeps you from that, any fear
that you may be broken to bits like a glass bottle.
This road demands courage and stamina,
yet it’s full of footprints!  Who are
these companions?  They are rungs in your ladder.  Use them!
With company you quicken your ascent.

Rumi

  1. thanks for being both a footprint and a rung. I just never know when I’ll be jumping off the path in fear and landing up in another one of those prickly thickets! ah… Rumi

  2. Your enso has an open, delicate, almost vulnerable feeling today, yet full of confidence, qualities that although not referred to in Rumi’s poem, are part of the journey when travelling with others.
