Don't Go Back to Sleep

Photographer unknown

Don't Go Back to Sleep
~by Rumi

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
Dont' go back to sleep.  


  1. So lovely... it's amazing how perfect of a message this is for me today. I spent several wonderful hours getting more in touch with myself today and assessing and realigning my thought process which was becoming heavy on the negative! I feel like I've been awakened and I don't want to go back to sleep!

    I'll be hanging this one up...
    Love and more love,

  2. julia,
    i discovered this in june
    & was blown away how it spoke to me.
    timing, you know. & now YOU, my friend,
    present it again. of course it is you,
    parallel path soul. how i treasure you.
    awake w/you, xxoo.

  3. Exquisitely beautiful light! And - I love the Rumi poem. Perfect!

  4. A favorite of mine!

    And I won't if you won't... ( ;

  5. Was there really a danger of you going back to sleep at 9:08am? If so, I am jealous. ;)


What are you thinking/feeling? I'd really love to know...

♥ Julia
