Absolutely Clear - Hafiz

(re-post)

 
Don't surrender your loneliness so quickly,
 let it cut more deep.

Let it ferment and season you
as few human or even divine ingredients can.

Something missing in my heart tonight
has made my eyes so soft,
my voice so tender.

My need of God
absolutely
clear.

 
--Hafiz

“When you have indulged a lust, your wing drops off;
you become lame, abandoned by a fantasy...

People fancy they are enjoying themselves,
but they are really tearing out their wings
for the sake of an illusion.”
― Rumi

Afghanistan


When we fast, we aren’t “starving” since we get to eat whatever we want at sundown each day.  There are those who are actually starving and don’t have the luxury of eating daily—let us be thankful for what we have and try to help those who have less.
