Where Dolphins Dance

Where Dolphins Dance

Again
The work starts
As soon as you open your eyes in the
Morning

Hopefully you got
Some good rest last night.

Why go into the city or the fields
Without first kissing
The Friend

Who always stands at your door?
It takes only a second.

Habits are human nature โ€“
Why not create some that will mint
Gold?

Your arms are violin bows
Always moving.

I have become very conscious upon
Whom we all play.

Thus my eyes have filled with warm
Soft oceans of divine music

Where jeweled dolphins dance
Then leap into this
World.

– Hafiz

The gods wait to delight in you.

The Laughing Heart by Charles Bukowski

your life is your life
donโ€™t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you canโ€™t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.

What one can be

โ€œWhat one can be, one must be!โ€

โ€• Abraham H. Maslow

โ€œOne can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again.โ€

โ€• Abraham H. Maslow
