"Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds ways to kneel and kiss the ground." - Rumi


I once heard an
old saying. It went:
"When a door closes,
somewhere a window opens."

What is this "window?" A
glass pannel of opportunity,
perhaps? Where do I find
it? What if it's locked and

I fail to open it? What
if this opportune moment
eludes my grasp, falling away,
crumbling to dust before my

outstretched fingertips, slipping
through, leaving not a hint?
What shall I do after losing
all hope? Continue wandering

through this maze, this game,
this twisted game of deception?
Mirrors and smoke. Materializing,
decieving. Is anything real?

I wish someone would
just tell me which way
to go. Lead me, guide me.
Where are You now?

Lost to my eyes.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take... but by the moments that take your breath away.
