The God Who Only Knows Four Words ~ Poem by Hafiz

The God Who Only Knows Four Words

by Hafiz



Has Know God,

Not the God of names,

Not the God of don’ts,

Not the God who ever does

Anything weird,

But the God who knows only four words,

“Come Dance with me.”





Prayer ~ A Poem by Hafiz


by Hafiz

I should not make any promises right now,

But I know if you


Somewhere in this world

Something good will happen.  

Mystic Silence ~ Poem by Attar on Love

Mystic Silence

By Attar

From each, Love demands a mystic silence.
What do all seek so earnestly? Tis Love.
Love is the subject of their inmost thoughts,
In Love no longer “Thou” and “I” exist,
For self has passed away in the Beloved.
Now will I draw aside the veil from Love,
And in the temple of mine inmost soul
Behold the Friend, Incomparable Love.
He who would know the secret of both worlds
Will find that the secret of them both is Love.

Love ~ Poem by Rumi


by Rumi

Love makes bitter things sweet.
Love turns copper to gold.
With love dregs settle into clarity.
With love suffering ceases.
Love brings the dead back to life.
Love transforms the King into a slave.
Love is the consummation of Gnosis.
How could a fool sit on such a throne?


Drunk on the Wine of the Beloved ~ Poem by Hafiz

Drunk on the Wine of the Beloved
A Poem by Hafiz

The beauty of this poem is beyond words.
Do you need a guide to experience the heat of the sun?

Blessed is the brush of the painter who paints
Such beautiful pictures for his virgin bride.

Look at this beauty. There is no reason for what you see.
Experience its grace. Even in nature there is nothing so fine.

Either this poem is a miracle, or some sort of magic trick.
Guided either by Gabriel or the Invisible Voice, inside.

No one, not even Hafiz, can describe with words the Great Mystery.
No one knows in which shell the priceless pearl does hide.

Someone Should Start Laughing Now – Poem by Hafez

Someone Should Start Laughing Now

by Hafez

I have a thousand brilliant lies
For the question:

How are you?

I have a thousand brilliant lies
For the question:

What is God?

If you think that the Truth can be known
From words,

If you think that the Sun and the Ocean

Can pass through that tiny opening Called the mouth,

O someone should start laughing!
Someone should start wildly Laughing ‘Now!

The Happy Virus by Hafez

I caught the happy virus last night

When I was out singing beneath the stars.

It is remarkably contagious –

So kiss me.
