Knots !

Knots in my belly ,
and so Rumi says -

You knock at the door of Reality.
You shake your thought wings,
loosen your shoulders,
and open.

What do you ?

a few morning glories and many drops of rain

Breakfast enjoyed
in the fine company
of morning glories ,

The morning glories
securing the
old fence

a little hump

The Camel’s hump is an ugly lump
Which well you may see at the Zoo;
But uglier yet is the hump we get
From having too little to do.

Kiddies and grown-ups too-oo-oo,
If we haven’t enough to do-oo-oo,
We get the hump–
Cameelious hump–
The hump that is black and blue!

We climb out of bed with a frouzly head
And a snarly-yarly voice.
We shiver and scowl and we grunt and we growl
At our bath and our boots and our toys!

And there ought to be a corner for me
(And I know there is one for you)
When we get the hump–
Cameelious hump–
The hump that is black and blue!

The cure for this ill is not to sit still,
Or frowst with a book by the fire;
But to take a large hoe and a shovel also,
And dig till you gently perspire.

And then you will find that the sun and the wind
And the Djinn of the Garden too,
Have lifted the hump–
The horrible hump–
The hump that is black and blue!

I get it as well as you-oo-oo,
If I haven’t enough to do-oo-oo,
We all get hump–
Cameelious hump–
Kiddies and grown-ups too!
