Found at home

May 31, 2011

I was passionate,
filled with longing,
I searched
far and wide.

But the day
that the Truthful One
found me,
I was at home.

– a poem by Lalla. A Sufi mystic, she lived in Kashmir, India during the first part of the 1300’s.


Blessing Tag

March 7, 2011

God disguised as myriad things,
and playing a game of tag has kissed you
and said, “You’re it.
I mean you’re really it.
Now it does not matter what you believe or feel.
For something wonderful,
something major-league wonderful,
is someday going to happen.”

– Hafez, Persian poet (c. 1325-1390)
