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?

The Foundation for Greatness

Greatness

Is always built upon this foundation:

The ability

To appear, speak, and act

As the  most

Common

Man.

Go For a Walk If It’s Not Too Dark

Go for a walk if it is not too dark.

Get some fresh air; try to smile.

Say something kind to a safe-looking stranger,

if one happens by.

Always exercise your heart’s knowing.

You might as well attempt something

real along this path of life:

Let tenderness pour from your eyes

the way the sun gazes warmly on the earth.

Take your spouse or your lover into your arms

the way you did when you first met.

Play a game with children.

Extend yourself to a friend.

Sing a few songs to your pets and plants.

Whisper, “I love you! I love you!”

to the whole world.

~Hafiz
