My favorite time of day…

Sunset, my favorite time of day.

Those who don’t feel this Love
pulling them like a river,
those who don’t drink dawn
like a cup of spring water
or take in sunset like supper,
those who don’t want to change, 

let them sleep. 

This Love is beyond the study of theology,
that old trickery and hypocrisy.
I want you to improve your mind that way, 

sleep on. 

I’ve given up on my brain.
I’ve torn the cloth to shreds
and thrown it away. 

If you’re not completely naked,
wrap your beautiful robe of words
around you, 

and sleep. 

-RUMI, “Like This” Coleman Barks, Maypop, 1990
