I wish

I wish I could live my life uttering very few words. If we all did, we would be precise and we would be truthful. Every word would spring from the very root of our thoughts, and that is our heart; and we could only but speak directly to the heart of others.

Kenza.

  1. If I may, I would like to share these words from another poet that also has a sense of love, as Kenza has:

    Go back, go back to sleep. Yes, you are allowed. You who have no Love in your heart, you can go back to sleep. The power of Love is exclusive to us, you can go back to sleep. I have been burnt by the fire of Love. You who have no such yearning in your heart, go back to sleep. The path of Love, has seventy-two folds and countless facets. Your love and religion is all about deceit, control and hypocrisy, go back to sleep. I have torn to pieces my robe of speech, and have let go of the desire to converse. You who are not naked yet, you can go back to sleep.
    Rumi
