Song of the Universe

A Suspended Blue Ocean
 
The sky
Is a suspended blue ocean.
The stars are the fish
That swim.
 
The planets are the white whales
I sometimes hitch a ride on,
 
And the sun and all light
Have forever fused themselves
 
Into my heart and upon
My skin.
 
There is only one rule
On this Wild Playground,
 
For every sign Hafiz has ever seen
Reads the same.
 
They all say,
 
“Have fun, my dear; my dear, have fun,
In the Beloved’s Divine
Game,
 
O, in the Beloved’s
Wonderful Game.”
 
~ Hafiz ~
 
 
 
(The Subject Tonight Is Love — versions of Hafiz by Daniel Ladinsky)
