A Thousand Serious Moves

(Hafez)

What is the difference

Between your 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

After yesterday’s post, I thought I would share one of my favourite poems. So here it is. I hope you enjoy it.
