    God Writes Me Poems

    Jacob Winkler

    God writes me poems
    with every sunset.
    The trees, stretching up
    like the hands
    of the whirling Earth-Dervish.
    Oh! When will I learn to love
    the way Hafiz and Rumi love?

    When will I learn to embrace every moment,
    to surrender everything to God?

    I hear you waiting for an answer.
    Perhaps when waiting
    has also been surrendered
    and there is only one
    person writing and reading these words,
    my Love will be complete.
