the "Lightening and Fertile Earth" collection:
again on a teal couch
I want to be like Hafiz
What happens when your soul Begins to awaken Your eyes And your heart And the cells of your body To the great Journey of Love?
First there is wonderful laughter And probably precious tears
And a hundred sweet promises And those heroic vows No one can ever keep.
But still God is delighted and amused You once tried to be a saint.
What happens when your soul Begins to awake in this world
To our deep need to love And serve the Friend?
O the Beloved Will send you One of His wonderful, wild companions -
I'm here, Friend
just like Hafiz.
