Lenten Reflection – Poem

Poem by the Sufi mystic poet, Rumi


For sixty years now

I have been forgetful

every moment, but

not for a second

has this flowing

toward me

stopped or slowed.

I deserve nothing.

Today I recognize

that I am the guest

the mystics talk about.

I play this living music

for my Host.

Everything today

is for my Host
