Persian Poets

The City of Saba > Rumi

The City of SABA was written in the 13th century by the Sufi mystic poet Jalal ad-Din Rumi and translated and recited in our film by Coleman Barks. What is so striking about this poem is it’s relevance to what is happening in our SABA – Washington, D.C.

One of 21 video poems in Four Seasons Productions newly released Moving Poetry Series – Three innovative new films – RANT * RAVE * RIFF.

On 6th May 2012, the moon was closer to the earth than it had been for an entire year. Some friends gathered to jam and freestyle to honour the silver luna hare in the perigee moon.
