POEM OF THE DAY: Absolutely Clear

by Shams al-Din Hafiz (14th Century).


Absolutely Clear


Don’t surrender your loneliness

So quickly.

Let it cut more deep.


Let it ferment and season you

As few human                                                                    5

Or even divine ingredients can.


Something missing in my heart tonight

Has made my eyes so soft,

My voice

So tender,                                                                         10


My need of God
