Daily readings of the 13th Century Persian poet as translated

And in the turning of nightmares and terrorfrom living too closeto the Phoenix's lairit turnsAnd he was not smittenFrom the kissHeaven was bornby crazy coincidence, he was in fact smitten from witnessing, the birth of a God
"a kiss is a hell-of-a-lot better than being bitten":)
:)I see that I mis-typed the title "The Prize of Kissing" and it's supposed to be "The Price of Kissing." Should I change it, or not? :)
I think we, sorry, I think you had better sleep wi, I think you had better sleep on it (the question)
perfect, now the title better fits the pearl of said typo
Again today there is a parallel connection with Rilke's "If I Cried Out." What do we give up to be joined with another? What do we suffer? What is the price?
i think it's like becoming a parent, accepting a job, eating a chocolate bar. there's giving and receiving in all decisions. steven
As you say, Ruth, Rilke and Rumi resonate in today's selections. Also check out Rilke's March 29 selection (reading ahead is okay) called Dread and Bliss. The three combine for tasty contemplation. To some degree, I think we habitually tend to exaggerate our separateness. We miss the many ways we are joined with this world and entwined in the web of life.
