Poetry Grrrl

'Listen' has the exact same letters as 'Silent'. Coincidence?

Hafiz quote about Poetry

hafiz3 Hafiz quote about Poetry

A poet is someone who can
pour light into a cup,
then raise it to nourish
your beautiful, parched holy mouth.

~ Hafiz, a 14th Century Persian Poet

What do sad people have in common? by Hafiz

locronan brittany locronan06 pdw015 1718x1370 500x398 What do sad people have in common? by Hafiz

What
Do sad people have in
Common?
It seems
They have all built a shrine
To the past
And often go there
And do a strange wail and
Worship.
What is the beginning of
Happiness?
It is to stop being
So religious
Like That.

~ Hafiz

One day the sun admitted… by Hafiz

Hafiz 2 One day the sun admitted... by Hafiz

One day the sun admitted,
I am just a shadow.
I wish I could show you
The Infinite Incandescence
That has cast my brilliant image!
I wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in darkness,
The astonishing Light
Of your own Being!
