This verse by the poet Rumi was sent to me by a great friend in the U.S. Daniel Jacob, on the morning Obama was elected.
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 two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don't go back to sleep.
