I wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in the darkness,
The Astonishing Light
Of your own Being!
Hafiz

This sky where we live is no place to lose your wings
So love, love, love.
Hafiz

Ever since Happiness heard your name
It has been running through the streets
Trying to find you.
Hafiz

Even after all this time
The sun never says to the earth,
"You owe Me."
Look what happens with
A love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.
Hafiz

One regret, dear world,
That I am determined not to have
When I am lying on my deathbed
Is that
I did not kiss you enough.
Hafiz

We are
People who need to love, because
Love is the soul's life,
Love is simply creation's greatest joy.
Hafiz

Do you know how beautiful You are?
I think not, my dear.
For as you talk of God,
I see great parades with wildly colorful bands
Streaming from your mind and heart,
Carrying wonderful and secret messages
To every corner of this world.
I see saints bowing in the mountains
Hundreds of miles away
To the wonder of sounds
That break into light
From your most common words.
Hafiz

Good Poetry makes
The universe
Admit a secret:
"I am really just
A tambourine,
Grab hold,
Play me against
Your warm
thigh."
Hafiz

I know the voice of depression
Still calls to you.
I know those habits that can ruin your life
Still send their invitations.
But you are with the Friend now
And look so much stronger.
You can stay that way
And even bloom!...
Learn to recognize the counterfeit coins
That may buy you just a moment of pleasure,
Buyt then drag you for days
Like a broken man
Behind a farting camel...
O keep squeezing drops of the Sun
From your prayers and work and music
And from your companions' beautiful laughter
And from the most insignificant movements
Of your own holy body.
Now, sweet one,
Be wise.
Cast all your votes for dancing!
Hafiz

This is the kind of Friend
You are-
Without making me realize
My soul’s anguished history,
You slip into my house at night,
And while I am sleeping,
You silently carry off
All my suffering and sordid past
In Your beautiful
Hands.
Hafiz

Hair disheveled, smiling lips, sweating and tipsy,
garment torn, singing a love song, glass in hand,
picking a quarrel, chanting a spell,
yesterday at midnight she came and sat by my bed.
Hafiz

We have come into this exquisite world to experience ever and ever more deeply our divine courage, freedom and light!
Hafiz

Time is a factory where everyone slaves away earning enough love to break their own chains.
Hafiz

Everyone is seeking love, sober or drunk;
Everywhere a house of love, yet so unique.
Hafiz

Love makes of each moment an eternity
And tends the garden of the heart’s desire
When love mocks, ruby tears fall heavy as pomegranates
And when love looks, it sees your deepest mystery.
Love seeks out the tears of hidden hearts
And turns not from the Lovers of the Dawn.
Is there a remedy for the pain of love?
Or is it too unbearable for thought?
One taste of the medicine
And you will realise just how sick you have been.
Those who plead in the defence of love
In love’s judgement shall find grace
And to that court, Hafiz
May your heart fly…
Hafiz

You carry all the ingredients
To turn your existence into joy,
Mix them
Mix them!
Hafiz

How did the rose
Ever open its heart
And give to this world
All its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light
Against its being,
Otherwise,
We all remain
Too frightened.
Hafiz

Let us be like
Two falling stars in the day sky.
Let no one know of our sublime beauty
As we hold hands with God
And burn
Into a sacred existence that defies -
That surpasses
Every description of ecstasy
And love.
Hafiz

Love’s secret is that you must love without desires that bind.
Hafiz, enjoy the one you love, drink deep and embrace;
seek not with her to please your world, just give love and be kind.
Hafiz

What
Is the
Root of all these
Words?
One thing: love.
But a love so deep and sweet
It needed to express itself
With scents, sounds, colors
That never before
Existed.
Hafiz

The Beloved sometimes wants
To do us a great favor:
Hold us upside down
And shake all the nonsense out.
Hafiz

It happens all the time in heaven,
and some day it will begin to happen again on earth...
that men and women who are married,
and men and men who are lovers,
and women and women who give each other light,
often will get down on their knees
and while so tenderly holding their lover's hand,
with tears in their eyes,
will sincerely speak, saying,
"My dear, how can I be more loving to you;
how can I be more kind?"
Hafiz

The earth has disappeared beneath my feet,
It fled from all my ecstasy,
Now like a singing air creature
I feel the Rose
Keep opening.
Hafiz

The earth has disappeared beneath my feet,
Illusion fled from all my ecstasy.
Now like a radiant sky creature
God keeps opening.
God keeps opening
Inside of Me.
Hafiz

The tide of my love
Has risen so high let me flood
over
You.
Hafiz

I caught the happy virus last night
When I was out singing beneath the stars.
It is remarkably contagious -
So kiss me.
Hafiz

My dear, when anything touches or enters your body
Never say it is not God, for He and I are
Just trying to get close to you.
Hafiz

God wants to see
More love and playfulness in your eyes
For that is your greatest witness to him.
Hafiz

The subject tonight is Love
And for tomorrow night as well,
As a matter of fact
I know of no better topic
For us to discuss
Until we all
Die!
Hafiz

Remember for just one minute of the day, it would be best to try looking upon yourself more as God does, for She knows your true royal nature.
Hafiz

There are different wells within your heart.
Some fill with each good rain,
Others are far too deep for that.
Hafiz

Your love
Should never be offered to the mouth of a
Stranger,
Only to someone
Who has the valor and daring
To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife
Then weave them into a blanket
To protect you.
Hafiz

Now
That
All your worry
Has proved such an
Unlucrative
Business,
Why
Not
Find a better
Job.
Hafiz

What
Would
Happen if God leaned down
And gave you a full wet
Kiss?
Hafiz
Doesn't mind answering astronomical questions
Like that:
You would surely start
Reciting all day, inebriated,
Rogue-poems
Like
This.
Hafiz

Everyone
Is God speaking.
Why not be polite and
Listen to
Him?
Hafiz

The small man
Builds cages for everyone
He
Knows.
While the sage,
Who has to duck his head
When the moon is low,
Keeps dropping keys all night long
For the
Beautiful
Rowdy
Prisoners.
Hafiz

The sky
Is a suspended blue ocean.
The stars are the fish
That swim.
The planets are the white whales
I sometimes hitch a ride on,
And the sun and all light
Have forever fused themselves
Into my heart and upon
My skin.
There is only one rule
On this Wild Playground,
For 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
Game,
O, in the Beloved's
Wonderful
Game."
Hafiz

Sing
Because this is a food
Our starving world
Needs.
Laugh
Because that is the purest
Sound.
Hafiz
Hafiz (also spelled Hafez), whose given name was Shams-ud-din Muhammad, was one of the greatest of Persia's mystical and lyrical Sufi poets. He was born in Shiraz in south-east Persia (modern Iran) c. 1320 and died c. 1389. He is affectionately known as "The Tongue of the Invisible". His poems were translated and interpreted by American poet Daniel Ladinsky.
