A.r.T

Shake me to expose the art,
for I am within the elements you do not see
but breathe. Breathe the feel of it.

Top 5 Rumi Favorites

1.)  “I want to see you.

Know your voice.

Recognize you when you
first come 'round the corner.

Sense your scent when I come 
into a room you've just left.

Know the lift of your heel,
the glide of your foot.

Become familiar with the way 
you purse your lips
then let them part, 
just the slightest bit,
when I lean in to your space
and kiss you.

I want to know the joy 
of how you whisper 
"more” 
- Rumi

2.)  “In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.”  

3.)   “Be melting snow.
Wash yourself of yourself.” 

4.)   “Study me as much as you like, you will not know me, for I differ in a hundred ways from what you see me to be. Put yourself behind my eyes and see me as I see myself, for I have chosen to dwell in a place you cannot see.” 

5.)   “These pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them.”

Tremors

The crimson water
green eyes,
begging for mercy
in a land of unknown companions

she was shaken from head to toe
as if searching for breath
in the state of Parkinson's disease
Having to arrange the bucks for medicines

She had now woken up from her dream
realizing it wasn't the naked truth of the month.

"It was a mere dream." - She sighed, with Holi colors on her face (wiping the sweat off for eerie future)
