dawn breeze

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1387 – The Breeze At Dawn  (inspired by Rumi’s poem)

“Today I have chosen another beauty of Rumi. This one I have given the title “the breeze at dawn”. This title is taken from the first line of the poem. I hope this poem will inspire you …”

The Breeze of Dawn:

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.

© Rumi

sunbeams caress my body
through the breeze the sheets have slipped from me
Ra kisses me awake

© Chèvrefeuille (our host)

Here is my attempt:

light filters through
curtains ruffle windowsill
spring breeze at dawn
