A voice through the door

Sometimes you hear a voice through the door
calling you,
as fish out of water hear the waves,
or a hunting falcon
hears the drums 
come back.

This turning toward
what you deeply love
saves you.

Children fill their shirts with rocks
and carry them around.
We’re not children anymore.
Read the book of your life
which has been given you.
A voice comesto your soul saying:'\
“Lift your foot, cross over,
move into the emptiness
of question and answer
and question.”

-Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi
