And For No Hafiz

For no reason
I start skipping like a child!

For no reason
I turn into a leaf
That is carried so high
I kiss the sun's mouth
And dissolve!

For no reason
A thousand birds
Choose my head for a conference table
Start passing their
Cups of wine
And their wild songbooks all around!

For every reason in existence
I begin to eternally.
To eternally laugh and love!

When I turn into a leaf
And start dancing,
I run to kiss our beautiful Friend
And I dissolve in the Truth
That I am.

~ Hafiz
