A Crystal Rimby Hafiz (Daniel Ladinsky)
Original Language English
Lifts its glass to the sun
And light -- light
Comes and sits on a crystal rim
And from my forest cave I
So I run to the edge of existence
And join my soul in love.
I lift my heart to God
And grace is poured.
An emerald bird rises from inside me
And now sits
Upon the Beloved's
I have left that dark cave forever.
My body has blended with His.
I lay my wing
As a bridge to you
So that you can join us
