POEMS: “How do I listen?” by Hafiz

How Do I Listen?

 

How
Do I
Listen to others?

As if everyone were my Master
Speaking to me
His
Cherished
Last
Words.

An Old Musician

How
Should
Those who know of God
Meet and
Part?

The way
An old musician
Greets his beloved
Instrument
And will take special care,
As a great artist always does,
To enhance the final note
Of each
Performance.

What is the Root?

What
Is the
Root of all these
Words?

One thing: love.
But a love so deep and sweet
It needed to express itself
With scents, sounds, colors
That never before
Existed.

Hafiz
