On A Day When The Wind Is Perfect

from Out Beyond Ideas BUY Slabster

On a day when the wind is perfect,
The sail just needs to open
and the world is full of beauty.
Today is such a day.

There's a breeze that can enter your soul.
This love that I know plays the drum

Arms move around me.
Who can contain their self before this beauty?

On a day when the wind is perfect,
The sail just needs to open and the love begins.

Today is such a day.
Today is such a day.

Jalaludin Rumi
