life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

into the wilder

Wilder Than We Ever

The one who pours is wilder than we

ever become drinking, wilder than

wine, the one who fills to the rim

and leaves to live in absence with

a toast: go home. There’s nothing for you here. A pearl in the shell

does not touch the ocean. Be a pearl

without a shell, a mindful flooding,

Candle turned moth,head become empty

jar, bird settling nest, love lived.

– Rumi
