Done With Patient Waiting

Rumi --Translated by Coleman Barks
The Glance
Songs of Soul Meeting

Daring Enough To Finish

Face that lights my face, you spin
intelligence into these particles

I am. Your wind shivers my tree.
My mouth tastes sweet with your name

in it. You make my dance daring enough
to finish. No more timidity! Let

fruit fall and wind turn my roots up
in the air. Done with patient waiting.
