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. Come back.

This turning toward what you deeply love
saves you. Read the book of your life,
which has been given you.

A voice comes to your soul saying:
Lift your foot. Cross over.

Move into emptiness
of question and answer and question.

~Mevlana Rumi
