No Better Gift by Rumi



When the ocean comes to you as a lover,
marry, at once, quickly,
for God's sake!

Don't postpone it!
Existence has no better gift.

No amount of searching will find this.

A perfect falcon, for no reason, has landed on you shoulder, and become yours.


(Rumi)

This is a beautiful and apropos poem. I saw it when you posted it on Facebook but didn't comment. Again, best wishes to you and your ocean.
