And For No Reason

And

For no reason
I start skipping like a child.

And

For no reason
I turn into a leaf
That is carried so high

I kiss the Sun's mouth
And dissolve.

And

For no reason
A thousand birds
Choose my head for a conference table,

Start passing their
Cups of wine
And their wild songbooks all around.

And

For every reason in existence
I begin to eternally,
To eternally laugh and love!

When I turn into a leaf
And start dancing,

I run to kiss our beautiful Friend
And I dissolve in the Truth
That I Am.

Hafiz

Elegance

It

Is not easy
To stop thinking ill
Of others.

Usually one must enter into a friendship
With a person
Who has accomplished that great feat himself.

Then

Something
Might start to rub off on you
Of that

True
Elegance.

Hafiz

I Got Kin

Plant

So that your own heart
Will grow.

Love

So God will think,

"Ahhhhhh,
I got kin in that body!

I should start inviting that soul over
For coffee and
Rolls."

Sing

Because this is a food
Our starving world
Needs.

Laugh

Because that is the purest
Sound.

Thank you, Don. You are personally responsible for broadening my education. Every time you use a name I don't know, or post a link to great music/musicians, or whatever it may be, I do a search and learn something new. Again, thank you.
