The Source

by Hafiz (Daniel Ladinsky)


Original Language English

God has never really spoken,
though a thought once crossed His mind.
It is the echo of divine
silence

we hear the birds sing, and that
is the source of all
we see and
touch.

-- from Love Poems from God: Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West, Translated by Daniel Ladinsky
