Poem by Rumi

 

This miniature book was letterpress printed by Wendy Fernstrum at Minnesota Center for Book Arts on a Vandercook 219, using photopolymer plates, on the last days of 2006.



The breeze at dawn has something to tell you.

DON'T GO BACK TO SLEEP.

You must ask for what you really want.

DON'T GO BACK TO SLEEP.

People are going back and forth across the doorsill where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open.

DON'T GO BACK TO SLEEP.
