Text adapted from Rumi (translated by Coleman Barks):

Inside this new love, die. 

Your way begins on the other side. 

Become the sky. 

Take an axe to the prison wall. 

Escape. 

Walk out like someone suddenly born into color. 

Do it now. 

You're covered with thick clouds. 

Slide out the side. Die, 
and be quiet.

Quietness is the surest sign that you've died. 

Your old life was a frantic running from silence.

The speechless full moon 
comes out now.Photo: Hive - 5x7 (acrylic, enamel, and Sharpie)Photo: Circuitree - 5x7 (acrylic, enamel, and Sharpie)Photo: Lightning Bug Mandala  (doodle)Photo: Heart's Protector (doodle for Gina)Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo:
