You Don't Have to Act Crazy Anymore

You don't have to act crazy anymore -
We all know you were good at that.

Now retire, my dear,
From all that hard work you do

Of bringing pain to your sweet eyes and heart.

Look in a clear mountain mirror -
See the Beautiful Ancient Warrior
And the Divine elements
You always carry inside

That infused this Universe with sacred Life
So long ago

And join you Eternally
With all Existence - with God!

--Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky

I was a mountain spring
Skipping merrily
From stone to stone
Streaming and singing
Hurrying among

As I grew
My song became a roar
As I grooved carelessly
Ancient boulders
And frothed between
Canyon walls

Increasing in volume
I flowed in the plains
Growing wider
And deeper
And thoughtfully slowing my pace.

Until I merged
In the embrace
Of the endless beloved
The ocean

And then
Lifted up by your grace
From my slumber
I became vapor
Steaming and rising
Towards the sun.

Gathered into a cloud
Pushed by winds of desire
I floated toward the mountains
Falling as rain
Starting my journey to you
