“Although you may consume sweet desserts, roast meat, and pure wine.
Know that (if) you consume water in a dream,
When you get up from the dream you will [still] be thirsty.
For the water you consume in a dream causes you no benefit.”
(c) Rumi (taken from “The Ruba’iyat” of Rumi, quartrain 1786)
Waking from love’s dream
I miss feeling your caress
Long for fantasy
