A Poem, Two Offerings of Words to Honor the Holy Days

Pulling out the chair
Beneath your mind
And watching you fall upon God-

What else is there
For Hafiz to do
That is any fun in this world!

If someone sits with me
And we talk about the Beloved,

If I cannot give his heart comfort,
If I cannot make him feel better
About himself and this world,

Then, Hafiz,
Quickly run to the mosque and pray-

For you have just committed
The only sin I know.

May your day be full of learning and hope

-Hafiz
