I see colors when I look at this poem with it's perfect title (in all upper case letters) and perfect layout on the screen/page. It's very "Great Gatsby."

 

I love the ending --

JAZZ.

Not any jazz, not just jazz, but my jazz! Thanks for sharing the inspirational artwork, too.

[Edit in after your most recent comment: I think this is an instance when the typographical layout of the poem actually complements the poem and isn't merely a gimmick. The picture of the poem with the graphics looks like it would work well as part of a program for a concert, but the colors certainly aren't necessary. In fact (though somehow appropriate) I find them distracting; your poem speaks for itself.]

I love your poem Rumi. The sense, the form, the jpeg. All in one makes a good composition. It looks and sounds great.
