The Moon is Also busy

I bow to God in gratitude,
And I find the moon is also busy
Doing the same.

I bow to God in great happiness,
And I learn from where the suns
And the children
And my heart
All borrow their Light.

I bow to the Friend in deep reverence,
And discover a marvellous secret carried in the air.

This whole Universe is just as blessed
And divinely crazed as I,
And just as lost in this Wonderful Holy Dance.

My dear,
After such a long, long journey,
God has made another soul Free!

Now all Hafiz wants to do,
Is open a beautiful Tavern
Where this Sacred Wine
Of God’s Truth, Knowledge and Love,
If forever and ever
Freely offered to you.

O bow to God in gratitude,
And some day
You will see how
The moon is also busy doing the same.

Poem by: Muhammad Hafiz Shirazi
