With That Moon Language

With That Moon Language

Admit something:

Everyone you see, you say to them, "Love me."

Of course you do not do this out loud, otherwise someone would call the cops.

Still, though, think about this, this great pull in us to connect.

Why not become the one who lives with a full moon in each eye

that is always saying,

with that sweet moon language,

what every other eye in this world is dying to hear?

Hafiz as translated by Daniel Landinsky from the book Love Poems From God.

This poem was shared by Sharon Gannon at the Jivamukti Immersn at Omega this past September and it has stayed with me. Daniel Landinsky has some very contemporary translations. A great resource for teaching but also for it to a friend a stranger or a beloved.
