Only one rule
Posted March 15, 2013on:
Wanted to share this beautiful Hafiz poem with you:
Is a suspended blue ocean.
The stars are the fish that swim.
The planets are the white whales I sometimes
Hitch a ride
The sun and all light
Have forever fused themselves into my heart
And upon my
There is only one rule on this Wild Playground,
Every sign Hafiz has ever seen
Reads the same.
They all say,
“Have fun, my dear; my dear, have fun,
In the Beloved’s divine
O, in the Beloved’s
(translated by Daniel Ladinsky)
