Hafiz… I rain

I rain

Because your meadows call

For God.

I weave light into words so that

When you mind holds them

Your eyes will relinquish their sadness,

Turn bright, a little brighter, giving to us

The way a candle does

To the dark.

I have wrapped my laughter like a birthday gift

And left it beside your bed.

I have planned the wisdom in my heart

Next to every signpost in the sky.

A wealthy man

Often becomes eccentric,

A divine crazed soul

Is transformed to infinite generosity

Tying gold sacks of gratuity

To the dangling feet of moons, planets, ecstatic

Midair dervishes, and singing birds.

I speak

Because every cell in your body

Is reaching out

For God.
