GUEST BLOG... POETRY!! "What Still Teaches Me" by Dennis Patrick Slattery

       Don't wash a wound with blood. -Rumi

Rumi:  What hurts you blesses you.

Me:  Awe is the leaf of a tree

fallen on your vision.

Awe is the way

through the enchanted familiar.

The full moon at 4 a,m,

teaches me silence

teaches me song

The sun at midday

riots through the window

to show me when I am wrong.

Stay with the moonlight.

It is sunlight without sound.
