“Let the waters settle and you will see the moon and the stars mirrored in your own being.” ― Rumi

He has made the sky as your roof

How can He Leave you unsheltered?

-Mariam Rehman

 

 

Encircling me

Your Waves,

They drenched me

In Stars.

Cascading

“Nothing will unfold for us unless we move toward what
looks to us like nothing: faith is a cascade.”
― Alice Fulton

 

‘Let the music of Love cascade you through this chaotic Life.’ – Mariam Rehman

 

Cascading water,

Awash in fragrance; bursting

Rapid emotions.

 

I’m writing this because, I don’t want you, my dear readers, to not realize that this is a Haiku. Somehow I feel that the piling up of images, one on top of another, goes with the title of my poem, ‘Cascading’.

 

This little piece that I’ve written is free verse, it just happened. 

 

After all,

Everything becomes clear then when,

You realize,

Love is the River 

Flowing behind everything,

That happens

To you.

 

I hope you’ll enjoy reading this 🙂 Thank you for visiting! Do leave comments if you are, in any way able to relate to this piece, I would really appreciate it.

Waterwheel of stars- Haiku

” If you don’t see the hidden River,

see how the waterwheel of stars continually turns.

If the heaven receive no rest from being moved by Love,

heart, don’t ask for rest- be a circling star.” – Rumi

Do not you see stars?

Spread upon the velvety sky?

Why ask where He is?

Chaos- Haiku

Inspired by the quote, “You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star,” by
― Friedrich Nietzsche

“The creative act is a letting down of the net of human imagination into the ocean of chaos on which we are suspended, and the attempt to bring out of it ideas.” ― Terence McKenna

I create chaos

Whilst writing, breathing words on

Paper- a dancing star born.

– Mariam Rehman
