Because of Our Wisdom


In many parts of this world water is scarce and precious.
People sometimes have to walk a great distance
Then carry heavy jugs upon their Heads.
Because of our wisdom, we will travel far for love.
All movement is a sign of thirst.

Most speaking really says,
"I am hungry to know you."

Every desire of your body is holy;
Every desire of your body is holy.

Dear one, Why wait until you are dying

To discover that divine truth?

My Papa used to read Hafiz to me as a kid, despite the fact I didn't understand it then. Thanks for this.
