Today, like every other day, we wake up empty
and frightened. Don’t open the door to the study
and begin reading. Take down a musical instrument.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
-Rumi, beginning of Spring Giddiness
When spring comes, so does the light. It shines on those dreams that laid dormant through the winter, it offers a warm touch later in the evening. The light makes me see all the beautiful new details springing forth in the extra light and growth of spring. It is an exciting time and it is also a challenging time.
Rumi always touches me and I feel this poem reminds me that spring is the time to try, to grow and to enjoy. There really are so many different ways to see the beauty in the world and sticking to what we always do is only one way.
