Poem

Seen in dawnd's journal

"Pick a poem you like. Your favourite, if you have a favourite, or one you think should be better known and more widely appreciated."



I don't have a single favorite poem.

Here's one I wrote:

Somewhere there was a world
where I lay down in your arms
and we watched the dawn.


And here's one Rumi wrote:


Thirst drove me down to the water
Where I drank the moon's reflection.
Now I am a lion staring up totally
lost in love with the thing itself.
Don't ask questions about longing.
Look in my face.

-- Rumi, from The Essential Rumi, translated by Coleman Barks
