I SAW YOU DANCING

I saw you dancing last night on the roof
Of your house all alone.

I felt your heart longing

I saw you swirling
Beneath the soft bright rose
That hung from an invisible stem in
The Sky.

So I began to change into my best clothes
In hopes of joining you

Even though
I live a thousand mile away.


You continue to spin like an immaculate sphere,

And when done you then bow so sweetly to
The East,

Looking up you find me
Standing near by
Waiting to embrace you.


I saw you dancing last night near the roof
Of this world.

I felt your soul touching mine
and bowed down in gratitude.

Hafiz

(liberties taken with the original poem)

IN A TREE HOUSE

Light
Will someday split you open
Even if your life in now a cage,

For a divine seed, the crown of destiny,
Is hidden and sown on an ancient, fertile plain
You hold the title to.

Love will surely bust you wide open
Into an unfettered, blooming new galaxy

A life-giving radiance will come,
The Friend's gratuity will come -

O look again within yourself,
For I know you were once the elegant host
To all the marvels in creation.

From a sacred crevice in your body
A bow rises each night
And shoots your soul into God.

Behold the Beautiful Drunk Singing One
From the lunar vantage point of love.

He is conducting the affairs
Of the whole universe

While throwing wild parties
In a tree house - on a limb
In your heart.

WillB,

These are two very uplifting and lovely poems especially the second. I'll look forward to more of your thoughts and words.
