Sweet Water

My Cure

My heart wandered through the world
constantly seeking after my cure,
but the sweet and delicious water of life
had to break through the granite of my heart.
Hazrat Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi [Quatrains: 1501]

Sweet Water

it’s taken all of time 
for the granite to form
but He cracks it open 
with one sure blow

when He says, "come"
who has the power to resist
and say no?

broken or burning
sinking or drowning
onward, onward
onward you go

to be stripped
and crushed
to be softened 
and opened

for “the sweet and
delicious water”
of Life
to flow
