extraordinary worlds







.



The sadness I have caused any face
by letting a stray word
strike it,

any pain
I have caused you,
what can I do to make us even?
Demand a hundred fold of me - I'll pay it.

During the day I hold my feet accountable
to watch out for wondrous insects and their friends.

Why would I want to bring horror
into their extraordinary
world?

Magnetic fields draw us to Light;
they move our limbs and thoughts.

But it is still dark;
if our hearts do not hold a lantern,
we will stumble over each other,

huddled beneath the sky
as we are.

–Rumi
I hold my feet accountable
