Hafiz - Tripping over Joy

What is the difference

Between your experience of Existence

And that of a saint?


The saint knows

That the spiritual path

Is a sublime chess game with God


And that the Beloved

Has just made such a Fantastic Move


That the saint is now continually

Tripping over Joy

And bursting out in Laughter

And saying, "I Surrender!"


Whereas, my dear,

I am afraid you still think

You have a thousand serious moves.
