The Silk Worm, by Rumi
I stood before a silk worm one day. And that night my heart said to me,
“I can do things like that, I can spin skies, I can be woven into love that can bring warmth to people; I can be soft against a crying face, I can be wings that lift, and I can travel on my thousand feet throughout the earth, my sacks filled with the sacred.”
And I replied to my heart,
“Dear, can you really do all those things?”
And it just nodded, “Yes” in silence.
So we began and will never cease.
