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?
