the scarlet sky

the scarlet sky



when a child leaves the breast
for solid food
it does not look back
it grows

the seed is nourished by earth
then spreads towards the sun

so: taste the scarlet sky
open towards wisdom
hide no longer in yourself

you came here like a star
that had no name
enter the night sky
be one again with all
the nameless galaxies

Tom Davis, after Rumi, A star without a name

One thought on “the scarlet sky
