Hat tip to Metanoia - especially meaningful as caring for a mother who is frail and seems to be slipping away.

Crying out loud and weeping
are great resources.

A nursing mother, all she does

is wait to hear her child.

Just a little beginning-whimper

and she's there.

Cry out.

Do not be stolid and silent with your pain.


and let the milk of loving

flow into you.

The hard rain and the wind

are ways the cloud has

to take care of us.

-- Rumi,
A Year with Rumi (May 5)


  1. I have this book if you'd like to borrow it - a year with Rumi.

    It is filled with such love.

    Sending you prayers.
