he was a persian poet who lived from 1315-1390.


in searching for hafiz quotes yesterday morning, i found this one:


All these words are just a front.
What I would really like to do
is chain you to my body,
then sing for days & days & days.


during the daily phone chat with my mother i read it to her.

silence. crickets. and the like.

to which i replied, it's okay mom. i'm 24. i'm young enough to still think that sentiment is unbelievably sexy and still just a wee bit (or a lot) beyond my comprehension. but old enough to sure as hell wanna figure it out.


oh that hafiz. he gets me everytime.

i just purchased "i heard god laughing". this is, perhaps, my favorite thus far:

keep squeezing drops of the Sun
from your prayers and work and music
and from your companion's beautiful laughter

keep squeezing drops from the Sun
from the sacred hands and glance of your Beloved
and, my dear
From the most insignificant movements
Of your own holy body.
