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.”

 

 

― Hafiz
