Hey! Remember this one?

Go ahead! Try it! How deep can you go? Oy!

So much beauty we can give to this wondrous, hurting world through the Game called, “gazing with soft eyes.” And don’t forget to let your gaze include Yourself!

Blessings of hilarity, delight and peace, Krayna

There Is a Wonderful Game

There is a game we should play,

And it goes like this:

We hold hands and look into each other’s eyes

And scan each other’s face.

Then I say,

“Now tell me a difference you see between us.”

And you might respond,

“Hafiz, your nose is ten times bigger than mine!”

first kissThen I would say,

“Yes, my dear, almost ten times!”

But let’s keep playing.

Let’s go deeper.

For if we do,

Our spirits will embrace

And interweave.

Our union will be so glorious

That even God

Will not be able to tell us apart.

There is a wonderful game

We should play with everyone

And it goes like this….

-Shams-ud-din Muhammad Hafiz (1320-1389)
