a poem

check this out.......this just completely rocks!

and NO! i didn't write it! ah, but if i only did....
this is from hafiz....

We speak
Becomes the house we live in.

Who will want to sleep in your bed
If the roof leaks
Right above

Look what happens when the tongue
Cannot say to kindness,

"I will be your slave."

The moon
covers her face with both hands

And can't bear
To look.

I adore Hafiz... so beautiful and loving... the way the words weave themselves around kindness and compassion...


Thank you for a good start to my morning.
