Marc shared this poem from Hafiz. I asked him to read it three times and curbed my urge to ask for more.
In the end I decided to ask him to email it to me so I could share it here.
WITH THAT MOON LANGUAGE
(by Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky)
Everyone you see, you say to them, “Love me.”
Of course you do not do this out loud, otherwise
someone would call the cops.
Still though, think about this, this great pull in us to connect.
Why not become the one who lives with a
full moon in each eye that is
with that sweet moon language,
what every other eye in
this world is
Hafiz has given all the advice anyone ever really needs. In one poem.
