The Way Wings Should (Thx to VALERIEMAHA!)
Wednesday, September 16, 2015
VALERIEMAHA recently shared this sublime verse from Rumi:
THE WAY WINGS SHOULD – RUMI
our children do in the morning?
Will they wake with their hearts wanting to play,
the way wings
Will they have dreamed the needed flights and gathered
the strength from the planets that all men and women need to balance
the wonderful charms of
so that her power and beauty does not make us forget our own?
I know all about the ways of the heart – how it wants to be alive.
Love so needs to love
that it will endure almost anything, even abuse,
just to flicker for a moment. But the sky’s mouth is kind,
its song will never hurt you, for I
sing those words.
What will our children do in the morning
if they do not see us
~ Rumi ~
While holding my grandson I felt a thrill, a catch in my throat and a round of goosebumps of awe. This verse helped me to put together some important inspirations which have since moved me:
I am so happy to have recovered my life and to be living a life worth living. I want my grandson to see me fly!
I also want my son & daughter-in-law to show my grandson their own version of what it means to fly and to live inspired lives.
Our hearts...yes, they want to be ALIVE and to FLY!
Be contagious! FLY and pay your enthusiasm forward to your loved ones...heck to EVERYONE!
PS...thank you everyone for your wonderful support! Apologies for not getting back to you all individually...too busy FLYING! :-)
