Ode to Friday: Hafez

pasmore_birthday_d5349273h

Don’t surrender your loneliness
So quickly.
Let it cut more deep.

Let it ferment and season you
As few human
Or even divine ingredients can.

Something missing in my heart tonight
Has made my eyes so soft,
My voice
So tender,

My need of God
Absolutely
Clear.

~ Absolutely Clear by Khwāja Shamsu d-Dīn Muhammad Hāfez-e Shīrāzī (خواجه شمس‌ دین محمد حافظ شیرازی‎), known by his pen name, Hāfez (Persian, 1325–1390)
