A couple of months ago I was reading Hafiz every morning to kick start my day. His poetry really helps to put a spring in my step, I highly recommend it. Anyway I began to notice some poetry sneaking into my journal writing and it was definitely Hafiz inspired stuff. I liked it so I thought that I would share it with all y'all! Let me know whatchya think.
the dance unfolds in front of me
like a lively
As the joy deepens
I awaken to the sound of your heart beating
in my chest.
I open my eyes and giggle to see you...
wreaking silly havoc
Ahhhh Hafiz! You've gotten under my skin and into my heart & pen! Thanks for such incredible inspiration and love! Oh and Thanks to Daniel Ladinsky too! His translations channel your amazing grace!
