That Magnificent Storm

by Hafiz (Daniel Ladinsky)


Original Language English

Sitting here
Loving like this

Alone again
In God's valley
After that magnificent storm
Of Your presence just
Passed.

I am like an elegant cypress
Whose face and form
Your beauty
Ruined.

Why not
Accuse You of infidelity
Or much
Worse

When every
Lover of God in this world
Would gladly
Testify

On
My
Behalf.
