A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Dear friends of MLMM,
Welcome at a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … This week I started a wonderful theme on my own website. I am exploring the poetry of Rumi, the 13th century Persian poet whom is renown around the globe for his beautiful poems. Rumi is also known as “The Mystical Poet”.
This week I have a nice quartrain written by him for your inspiration:
Although you may consume sweet desserts, roast meat, and pure wine.
Know that (if) you consume water in a dream,
When you get up from the dream you will [still] be thirsty.
For the water you consume in a dream causes you no benefit.
(c) Rumi (taken from “The Ruba’iyat” of Rumi, quartrain 1786)
Write a haibun (maximum of 250 words) or a haiku inspired on this quartrain by Rumi.
When you have written your haiku, please TAG Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille and Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. Then add your link to the Mister Linky widget below.
