Rumi Visits Sesame Street™
By Robert Wynne

He waves to Kermit with a left hand
the color felt becomes
when it’s achieved oneness

with the idea of neighborhood.
L, he says, is for the Love in each of us
vibrating at a frequency so low

only Snuffleupagus can hear it.
L, he says, is also for Loss
which is a wheel crushing us

beneath its expectations
before carrying us higher
than we ever thought possible.

And L, he says, is Light
suffusing every soul,
shuttling us night after night

back to the door of morning,
hungry for so many things
beyond all this, beyond words.
