Ariel’s Faves (2/30)

BARBRA STREISAND
(b. April 24, 1942)

“How I wish we lived in a time when laws were not necessary to safeguard us from discrimination.”

“I’ve considered having my nose fixed. But I didn’t trust anyone enough. If I could do it myself with a mirror.”

“Men are allowed to have passion and commitment for their work… a woman is allowed that feeling for a man, but not her work.”

“I just don’t want to be hampered by my own limitations.”

The Way They Were: A look Back

If anyone asks you
how the perfect satisfaction
of all our sexual wanting
will look, lift your face
and say,

Like this.

When someone mentions the gracefulness
of the nightsky, climb up on the roof
and dance and say,

Like this.

If anyone wants to know what “spirit” is,
or what “God’s fragrance” means,
lean your head toward him or her.
Keep your face there close.

Like this.

If anyone wonders how Jesus raised the dead,

don’t try to explain the miracle.
Kiss me on the lips.

Like this. Like this.

When someone asks what it means
to “die for love,” point
here.

If someone asks how tall I am, frown
and measure with your fingers the space
between the creases on your forehead.

This tall.

The soul sometimes leaves the body, the returns.
When someone doesn’t believe that,
walk back into my house.

Like this.

When lovers moan,
they’re telling our story.

Like this.

I am a sky where spirits live.

Stare into this deepening blue,

while the breeze says a secret.

From: “Like This” - Rumi
