SHE RESPONDED ~ Hafiz poem; excerpt page 26


The bird’s favorite songs
You do not hear,

For their most flamboyant music takes place
When their wings are stretched
Above the trees

And they are smoking the opium of pure freedom.

It is healthy for the prisoner
To have faith

That one day he will again move about
Whenever he wants,
Feel the Onederous gift of Life –
Less structured,
Find all wounds, debts stamped cancelled,

I once asked a bird,
“How is it that you fly in this gravity
Of darkness?”

She responded,

“Love lifts Me”

~ Hafiz
