“Life”

Between that song you really love
And that other song you really love
Between that first pint
And that morning cup of coffee

Between the plans and aspirations
And jobs and CV writing
Between the summer vacations
And the middle of your exams

Between the blog entries
And the nights out
Between the lecture bells
And the last line of your dissertation

Between the epiphanies
And the hazy moments of self-doubt
Between the crushes and day dreams
And the texting

That’s when it happens…

  1. Well said🙂
    Some more words, not my own, Rumi —

    “..why are you so busy
    with this or that or good or bad
    pay attention to how things blend

    why talk about all
    the known and the unknown
    see how the unknown merges into the known

    why think seperately
    of this life and the next
    when one is born from the last

    look at your heart and tongue
    one feels but deaf and dumb
    the other speaks in words and signs

    look at water and fire
    earth and wind
    enemies and friends all at once

    the wolf and the lamb
    the lion and the deer
    far away yet together

    look at the unity of this
    spring and winter
    manifested in the equinox

    you too must mingle my friends
    since the earth and the sky
    are mingled just for you and me

    be like sugarcane
    sweet yet silent
    don’t get mixed up with bitter words

    my beloved grows
    right out of my own heart
    how much more union can there be?”
