Say I am You
Before I go to bed tonight, I feel the need to share this:
I am dust particles in sunlight/ I am the round sun.
To the bits of dust, I say, “Stay… To the sun I say, “Keep moving.”
I am morning mist, and the breathing of evening.
I am the wind in the top of a grove and surf on a cliff.
Mast, rudder, helmsman, and keel. I am also the coral reef they founder on.
silence, thought, and voice.
The musical air…Both candle and the crazy moth around it…
I am all orders of being, the circling galaxy, the evolutionary intelligence, the lift,
and the falling away.
What is, what isn’t.
You, who know…
You are the one in
who say I am.
Say I am you.
_/\_ With much love to Rumi and respect to those who translated this. I moved through it in my own way after sitting on the back porch and being surrounded by moths.
I go to bed. Connected. To you. Me. And, we.
