And For No Reason, by Hafez

For no reason
I start skipping like a child.
For no reason
I turn into a leaf
That is carried so high
I kiss the Sun's mouth
And dissolve.
For no reason

A thousand birds
Choose my head for a conference table,
Start passing their
Cups of wine
And their wild songbooks all around.
For every reason in existence
I begin to eternally,
To eternally laugh and love!
When I turn into a leaf
And start dancing,
I run to kiss our beautiful friend
And I dissolve in the truth
That I Am.


Hafez. Such a wonderful poet. Read more about him here:
