The poetry written by 21centuryrumi is all about spirituality. This is the poem Caravan of faith. A poem that tells us there is no easy road to take.
The Ministry of Poetic Affairs isn’t just about the great names, such as Emily Dickinson, William Butler Yeats or whatever name comes to mind. We are an online poetry magazine, that supports and promotes poets across the globe. That is why we also feature the poems of those who recently started out on social media. 21centuryrumi is such a poet. Only four days ago, the first publication on Instagram was made.
The poet did not tell us a lot about the backgrounds and the motivation to write. So it’s pretty much guessing. That should not be a problem when it comes to Caravan of faith.
Caravan of faith
There are thousands in the caravan
Who try to cross the bridge,
to the unseen world
From here I see them crossing over
Yet I find no one to share this glass of wine with
What made them lose their way
A half-hearted surrender maybe
Tell them, here we have no shortcuts
Either you travel straight road or fall astray.
The poem tells us how we struggle through life. The last part of this one-stanza-poem is important: Either you travel straight road of fall astray. The poet tells us, that there isn’t an easy way or shortcut. The poet observes people as if they were crossing this bridge. A metaphor for life and the way we want to get to the other side. This can be goals that people want to achieve or even death.
The caravan can be a group of people, travelling together to one destination, or can be the living quarters (mobile living quarters).
Altogether, a poem that makes one think about life.
