Love has Befriended Hafiz so completely...by Hafiz
I Have Learned So much from God
That I can no longer Call Myself A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim A Buddhist, a Jew. The Truth has shared so much of Itself With me That I can no longer call myself A man, a woman, and angel Or even pure Soul.
Love has Befriended Hafiz so completely It has turned to ash And freed Me
Of every concept and image My mind has ever known.
~ Hafiz, Persian poet (1315 – 1390), translated by Daniel Lazinsky.
