Laughter

Sun peeks through a cloudWhat is laughter?  What is laughter?

It is God waking up! O it is God waking up!  

It is the sun poking its sweet head out

from behind a cloud

You have been carrying too long,  

Veiling your eyes and heart. 

Hafiz

I love the snippets of truth and grace that emerge from the writings of Hafiz, who lived in the 1300’s and was the beloved poet of the Persians.  His words capture the swirling images of our lives and create spiritual descriptions of  those moments.

I wait impatiently for these moments of laughter that clear the skies of my useless concerns.

  1. I LOVE this!!! I’ve recently been reading Hafiz myself and his works has been a source of great introspection, wonder, reflection and joy! Truly a great Sufi Master. Sharon

      Yes, I finally gave up “googling” him and bought one of his books. I may have to get more!

      • I’m really glad I visited you because you have a really great blog going! I can’t wait to catch up reading your thoughts and life’s lessons. Warmest greetings from Finland, Sharon
