STARS AND A CRESCENT MOON
As we approach the holiday season, I thought a little poetry might be a good gift. A way to pause, breathe, slow down. Here are a few lines from Rumi, the 13th century Persian poet, translated by Coleman Barks. This is the last stanza of a poem titled “A Bowl.”
“The universe and the light of the stars come through me.
I am the crescent moon put up
over the gate to the festival.”
