Like mountain water

Speaking of poetry, here are some further thoughts, this time from Rumi, the Sufi master:

… Poetry, the dear

words and images of song, comes down
over me like mountain water

(Rumi, The Book of Love: Poems of Ecstasy and Longing)

Refreshing, live-giving mountain water, some poetry is indeed like that.

I also read recently that you come away from reading poetry, feeling that you have been cleansed – yet another image that I can relate to.
