“I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.” Rumi

Remembrance: Happy Father's Day Memories
Remembrance: Happy Father’s Day Memories – My guiding light

The Ocean Moving All Night – Rumi
Stay with us. Don’t sink to the bottom like a fish going to sleep.
Be with the ocean moving steadily all night, not scattered like a rainstorm.
The spring we’re looking for is somewhere in this murkiness
See the night-lights up there traveling together, the candle awake in its gold dish.
Don’t slide into the cracks of the ground like spilled mercury.
When the full moon comes out, look around.
