As much as I have a deep appreciation for the poetry of Rumi, I have grown to love another Persian poet and mystic known as Hafiz, who lived during the fourteenth century. Hafiz' poetry is so love-infused, so joy-based, it seems to have been spoken by Love itself.
I'm leaving for Minneapolis for a couple of days, but before I do, I'd like to share with you one of my favorite poems by Hafiz:

Have a safe, fun trip!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the poem! I didn't know Hafiz. Have a nice trip. Teresa, I love Gustav Klimt! I've got copies of two, "The Kiss" and the beautiful lady "Mrs. Adele Bloch-Bauer". I've got them upon the wall just above my computer. I love his fantastic golden and coloured patterns.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful poem/poet. Thanks for sharing this, Teresa. And I love Klimt, too, so thanks for that. Have a good time in the Minneapple...there's a lot going on there, this weekend. I'd go, too, except that grandson, Jake is here.ReplyDelete
A lovely thought expressed and one to learn from too; have a good trip.ReplyDelete
There are lotsa big art fairs this weekend in the Twin Cities. Plus, the primary is Tuesday.ReplyDelete
And there are tons of farmer's markets!
Beautiful poem, Well worth putting on a wall for everyone to read! Have a fun trip.ReplyDelete
Oh, I can't tell you how much I love this poem! I'd never heard it before, thank you so much for sharing it. I'm going to think about it all day...ReplyDelete
Now that is just adorable. I'm going to steal that for my Facebook page...ReplyDelete
That's a beautiful poem. I will definitely "clip and save." Have a great time here in the Twin Cities.ReplyDelete
I am so grateful for each one of you, for taking the time to read and comment, for your well-wishes for my trip to The Cities, and for expanding my life so beautifully. Thank you.ReplyDelete
I'm after the fact, but enjoy your posts too much not to catch up...early evening, windows open and Gustav Klimt, a real favorite of mine for years...didn't know about Hafiz but so enjoyed the poem, simple but oh so powerful, I'm gonna look for more. Thanks, T!ReplyDelete
