The Stream

I often dream of living near a stream
with Rumi to keep me company.

I often dream of living near a stream
that gurgles even in the summer.

I often dream of living near a stream
that bubbles with liquid birdcalls.

I often dream of living near a stream
where cicadas buzz in the noon.

I often dream of living near a stream
where pelf and power don't matter.

I often dream of living near a stream
that brings me closer to heaven.

  9. The repetition creates a lulling movement like sitting by a stream. It would be nice just to visit a while with Rumi and listen to his wisdom and poetry.
