One of my favourite poems comes from a book called  ‘The Gift’. A collection of poems by Haliz, the great Sufi master from Persia (14th C.)

recently translated by Daniel Ladinsky.

 

With That Moon Language

 

Admit something:

Everyone you see, you say to them,

Love me’

 

Of course you do not do this out loud;

Otherwise,

Someone will call the cops.

 

Still though, think about this, 

The great pull in us 

To connect.

 

Why not become the one 

Who lives with a full moon in each eye

That is always saying, 

 

With that sweet moon language

 

What every other eye in this world

Is dying to hear.

 

I’m glad of this poem, because it reminds me to love, as do all the magnificent people in my life.
