Just rest

Post by Aurora » Sun Nov 11, 2007 6:21 pm

“Just sit there right now.
Don’t do a thing.
Just rest.

For your separation from God is the hardest work in this world.

Let me bring you trays of food
And something you like to drink.

You can use my soft verse
As a cushion
For your head.”


--Shams-ud-din Muhammad Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky

SOME FILL WITH EACH GOOD RAIN

There are different wells within your heart.
Some fill with each good rain,
Others are far too deep for that.

In one well
You have just a few precious cups of water,
That "love" is literally something of yourself,
It can grow as slow as a diamond
If it is lost.

Your love
Should never be offered to the mouth of a
Stranger,
Only to someone
Who has the valor and daring
To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife
Then weave them into a blanket
To protect you.

There are different wells within us.
Some fill with each good rain,
Others are far, far too deep
For that.
