When I Want to Kiss God

When no one is looking,

I swallow deserts and clouds

And chew on mountains

knowing they are sweet bones!

When no one is looking

and I want to kiss God

I just lift my own hand

to my mouth.

- Hafiz


It Felt Like Love

How did the rose

ever open its heart

And give to this world

all its beauty?

If felt the encouragement

of light against its being,

Otherwise, we all remain

too frightened.

- Hafiz
