All the Hemispheres

Whispers of fragrant breeze

 
 
 
Leave the familiar for a while.
Let your senses and bodies stretch out
 
Like a welcomed season
Onto the meadows and shores and hills.
 
Open up to the Roof.
Make a new water-mark on your excitement
And love.
 
Like a blooming night flower,
Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness
And giving
Upon our intimate assembly.
 
Change rooms in your mind for a day. 
All the hemispheres in existence
Lie beside an equator
In your heart.
 
Greet Yourself
In your thousand other forms
As you mount the hidden tide and travel
Back home.
 
All the hemispheres in heaven
Are sitting around a fire
Chatting
 
While stitching themselves together
Into the Great Circle inside of
You.
― شمس الدین محمد حافظ /
Shams-al-Din Mohammad Hafez,
(1325 – 1389 )
