Born in 1310, Persian Lyric Poet Hafiz is one of the most celebrated of all the Persian poets. Like Rumi, Hafiz continues through time to inspire us and guide us to see the world through love and understanding.
There is so much wisdom in this poem. So leave the familiar for awhile, and let it speak to you.
All the Hemispheres
Leave the familiar for awhile.
Let your senses and body stretch out like a welcomed season, onto the meadows, shores and hills.
Open up to the roof. Make a new watermark of excitement and love.
Change the rooms in your mind for a day.
All the hemispheres in existence lie beside an equator in your heart.
Greet yourself in your thousand other forms, as you mount the hidden tide and travel back home.
All the hemispheres in heaven are sitting around a fire chatting.
While stitching themselves together into the great circle inside of you.

Stunning poem Karen, I love it. The more aware we are of the beauty around us, the better our day and life is. The rooms in our minds need a spring clean every so often to shake of the negatives we collect, sometimes without even knowing.
Yes I think that’s it Kath. To practice each day to see and feel the beauty around us. 💕
