    What's fun about having a book like this on your iPod is telling yourself you get to read only the page for today. No fear of getting too little with just one poem. In a small space, Rumi gives all I need to ruminate on. One poem colours the whole day if I let it. Of course the poetry is splendid, and some of the works miraculous, all of which is no small thanks to Coleman Barks.
