Dream Poetry

Last night I dreamt that I was talking with joemorf about the poetry of Rumi, and quoted to him and pyr8queen the following poem. In my dream it was Rumi's, awake I realize it was my own invention. In the dream it seemed pretty amazing and beautiful, though.. in the clear light of day, it's as pedestrian as anything else I've written. Still, composing in one's sleep is pretty cool!

O Love,
Having sipped of your cup,
How could I not wish
To drink deeply?

Heh, reading it again, it seems exactly like a pastiche of Rumi. Which, in fact, it is - however subconscious.

I think it's awesome that I'm your go-to-guy when talking about and composing poetry in your dreams.

Wait, that's all we were doing, right?

well, we were also having a horse-drawn cart race with a bunch of other people. You were trying to impress girls with your Rumi knowledge.
