The Way of Truth

April 15, 2017

Spring and all its flowers
now joyously break

their vow of silence.
It is time for celebration,

not for lying low;
You too — weed out those roots

of sadness from your heart.

The wind arrives;
and in deep resonance,

the flower passionately

rips open its garments,
thrusting itself from itself.

The Way of Truth,

learn from the clarity of water,
learn freedom

from the spreading grass.

~ Hafiz

(1315-1390, Sufi Mystic and Poet)
