Hafiz: The tide of my love

 

The tide of my love
Has risen so high let me flood over
You.

Close your eyes for a moment
And maybe all of your fears and fantasies
Will end.

If that happened
God would become an infant in your
arms.

And then you
Would have to nurse all
Creation!

– Hafiz in the words of Daniel Ladinsky, from The Gift: Poems by Hafiz The Great Sufi Master
