What is the key
To untie the knot of your mind’s suffering?

Untangle
Hearts tender landscape


What
Is the esoteric secret
To slay the crazed one whom each of us
Did wed

And who can ruin
Our heart’s and eye’s exquisite tender
Landscape?

Hafiz has found
Two emerald words that
Restored
Me

That I now cling to as I would sacred
Tresses of my Beloved’s
Hair:

Act great.
My dear, always act great.

What is the key
To untie the knot of the mind’s suffering?

Benevolent thought, sound
And movement.

~ Hafiz ~

(The Gift – versions of Hafiz by Daniel Ladinsky)
Swords of war rattle,
two friends have died this month,
I turn the calendar page and it is September 11th again.
Hafiz  wisdom comforts
I hope these words do the same for you.

One thought

  1. This is definently a day to think back and say a little prayer for the ones that lost their lives on 9-11-2001. I can remember where I was and what I was doing that morning!! I can also remember where I was and what I was doing on the day Pres. Kennedy was assassinated. Things happen in our lives that are put into our minds that we never forget.
