“I Do not Want to”…

I Do not
Want to step so quickly

Over a beautiful line on God’s palm

As I move through the earth’s
Marketplace
Today.

I do not want to touch any object in this world
Without my eyes testifying to the truth

That everything is

My Beloved.

 

Something has happened

To my understanding of existence

That now makes my heart always full of wonder

And kindness.

 

I do not

Want to step so quickly

Over this sacred place on God’s body

That is right beneath your

Own foot

 

As I

Dance with

Precious life

Today.

—Hafiz

(Daniel Ladinsky version)
