The Gift. Poems by Hafiz. The Great Sufi Master was given to me for Christmas in 2010 by my Aunt Rose and Uncle Dave.
It is so hard to choose a poem out of this collection because they are all so amazing.
Hafiz is from Persia and he lived in the 14th century. He wrote about 5000 poems but only about 600 or so have survived.
I chose to post this poem, You're It by Hafiz because it always makes me smile.
It is perfect for Easter and Passover and reminds me of all the wonderful things that could happen in my life and those that already have.
As a myriad things and
Playing a game
Has kissed you and said,
I mean, you're Really IT!"
It does not matter
What you believe or feel
For something wonderful,
Is someday going
Poem is found on Page. 30 in The Gift
Have a beautiful, wonderful week. Oh and Tag, You're It!
