               Birdwings by Rumi

    Your grief for what you've lost lifts a mirror
    up to where you're bravely working.

    Expecting the worst, you look, and instead,
    here's the joyful face you've been wanting to see.

    Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes.
    If it were always a fist or always stretched open
                    you would be paralyzed.

    Your deepest presence is in every small contracting
               and expanding,
        the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated
                                as birdwings.
