Shams and Mevlana

Shams was laughing when he composed 
Mevlana was turning and dancing 
one laughs external, one internal 
All speaking the same language 
passing out Pearl Knowledge to 
the rest of the vast ocean 
reminding us that we can only 
bear a jug full, a small glass 
so we shouldn't rush 
don't bet on the horse-race 
just take one day at a time 
don't borrow from tomorrow 
take in only what is in 
our capacity to handle 
please no overdosing 
on drugs
on sugar 
on caffeine 
on life 
enjoy the smorgasbord but 
only fill your plate

    I love this one and agree completely. We all need to slow down and enjoy, like I have previously said. Glad we're on the same page my friend
