I Saw Two Birds - Hafiz

Updated: Feb 3, 2019

A daily morning reflections practice is something I aspire to do every day. Sometimes I manage it and sometimes life gets in the way. This can be deeply frustrating, or part of the emerging flow of life. My aim is to drop down and into my body before anything else happens in my day. Hafiz connects me to Grace so deeply. What comes from that place is always formed more beautifully than if I start the day with head trash.



Both of our mouths Can fit upon this flute I carry. My music will sound So much sweeter that way With your breath and my breath Poking each other in the ribs And kissing. I saw two birds on a limb this morning Laughing with the sun. They reminded me of how We will one day exist. My dear, Keep thinking about God, Keep thinking about the Beloved And soon our nest will be the Whole firmament. Forget about all your desires for truth,We have gone far beyond that. For now it is just pure need. Both our hearts are meant to sing. Both our souls are destined to touch And kiss Upon this holy flute God carries.

~ Hafiz
