Poem by Rumi, Response by Dorothy 

Some Kiss We Want

There is some kiss we want with
our whole lives, the touch of

spirit on the body. Seawater
begs the pearl to break its shell.

And the lily, how passionately
it needs some wild darling! At

night, I open the window and ask
the moon to come and press its

face against mine. Breathe into
me. Close the language- door and

open the love window. The moon
won't use the door, only the window.

From Soul of Rumi
by Coleman Barks

Response from Dorothy

Yes, of course,
that is the thing we want,
touch of spirit
on body,
delight of soul
enfleshed and opened,

trembling at last,
how could we not
how it was before,
when you were not there,
when all we had
was this cloud of longing
and did not even know
what it was
we were looking for?
