LET THE BEAUTY OF LOVE BE WHAT YOU DO… Rumi


“Let the beauty of love be what we do.” Rumi

 

NaPoWriMo prompt… steal a line from someone else and use it.   Love that. Found language.  And one of my favorite Poets is Rumi.  I steal the above line and make it mine.  Shhhh… I steal lines all the time.  Sippy the coffee..

 

Dreams chase you if you aren’t chasing them

The haunt of desire and the languid of love

Call dreams to actions in your waking

Let the beauty of love be what we do

 

Routine dulls the haunt, by-passes the languid

Love’s desires melt into wayward busy-ness

Lost to the thrive of living that numbs us out

Let the beauty of love be what we do

 

Hard to know when the days lost pleasure

When the gravity of work and life’s utterance

weight the joy out of loves daily cherish

Let the beauty of love be what we do 

 

Sweetness found you once. Love waits

Desire still tastes like luscious living

And dreams are as you make them

Let the beauty of love be what we do

 

Call it back. Turn back cause you can

Time didn’t run out for loves return

Love never left you when you turned away

Let the beauty of love be what you do

 

Be what you do for the beauty of love

Love for the sake of the something beautiful

Give  yourself to one small beautiful moment

Let the beauty of love be what you do
