What soothes your agitated soul?

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.

Don't go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.

Don't go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth across the doorsill

where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open.

Don't go back to sleep.

From Essential Rumi

When we are working through a transition or a loss or perhaps are focused on a heavy lift, our souls can feel agitated and weary. Poetry is soul food - it eases the ragged edges, challenges all or nothing thinking, and reminds us to zoom out and look at the whole picture.

No matter where you are stuck, how does making time to feed your soul with poetry support your optimal health?
