Some Fill With Each Good Rain

It is pouring outside.
The sound of the rain is beckoning me to sleep...

Some Fill With Each Good Rain
Hafiz of Shiraz – Persian Poet 1315-1390

There are different wells within your heart.
Some fill with each good rain,
Others are far too deep for that.

In one well
You have just a few precious cups of water,

That "love" is literally something of yourself,
It can grow as slow as a diamond
If it is lost.

Your love
Should never be offered to the mouth of a
Stranger,

Only to someone
who has the valor and daring
To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife

Then weave them into a blanket
To protect you.

There are different wells within us.
Some fill with each good rain,

Others far, far too deep
For that.

Thanks so much for commenting on my blog ... because now I got to (virtually) meet you, too! It is such a small world. How exciting about Snug Furniture! I can't wait to see more. And I *loved* your interview on The Decorating Diva! I look forward to seeing what you'll be up to next. :-)

I love this May!
I am posting it to my bulletin board. Now how do I cut and paste falling rain? Just kidding.
Sending you warm thoughts...
