MYSTICAL POEMS: “There is no void or darkness” by Hafiz


“There is no void or darkness” 

Poetry reveals that there is no empty space.

When your truth forsakes its shyness,
When your fears surrender to your strengths,
You will begin to experience
That all existence
Is a teeming sea of infinite life.

In a handful of ocean water
You could not count all the finely tuned
Who are acting stoned
For very intelligent and sane reasons
And of course are becoming extremely sweet
And wild!

In a handful of the sky and earth,
In a handful of God,
We cannot count
All the ecstatic lovers who are dancing there
Behind the mysterious veil.

True art reveals there is no void
Or darkness.
There is no loneliness to the clear-eyed mystic
In this luminous, brimming
Playful world.

  1. Splendid poetry by Hafiz on void and darkness. In this illusionary world there is void and darkness but in the world of reality there is nothing like that. Everything is a beautiful light. Lovely post, Amira.
