HAFIZ -- SUFI POET




Even
After
All this time
The Sun never says
To the Earth
"you owe me"
What happens
With a love like that
It lights the 
Whole
Sky

~ ~Hafiz

    1. Starr -- I certainly will look into your book suggestion. Always like recommendations. Nice that you have heard the Hafiz quote before. I might have even used it in one of my blogs before but it doesn't hurt to repeat it with all its wise words. thanks -- barbara

  2. I like the quote very much. It says a lot that is not even evident in the words.

  5. Unconditional love is amazing to receive but sometimes so hard to reciprocate.
