Hold this lightly as we meet each other… a modern translation of a 14th century poem by Sufi poet, Hafiz.
Everyone you see, you say to them
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 one who
lives with a full moon in each eye
that is always saying,
with that sweet moon language,
what every other eye in this world
is dying to hear?
