Katibug, Egoicmidget and Phil,

all such beautiful posts!


Here is a poem from the Sufi Hafiz.


" and
for no reason
I start skipping

like a child

and
for no reason
I turn into a leaf
that is carried so high

I kiss the sun’s
mouth

and dissolve
and
for no reason

a thousand birds choose
my head for a conference table,

start passing their cups of wine, and their wild
songbirds all around

and for every reason in exixstence,

I begin to eternally,
to eternally laugh and love!

when I turn
into a leaf
and start dancing,

I run to kiss our Beloved Friend

and dissolve in the Truth

that I Am"

Below is a writing of mine I thought I'd post.

-----------------------------------------------------------


Immersed in silent wonder I tread towards the opening-
the doorway and the void beyond it calls me forth.

The trickling timeless nothing below the tattered noise of
years of wandering.
Finally the beckoning occurs and I answer from
this still and timeless place, and I realize I am home.
I am peace.

--------------------------------------------------------------------



John

I think it would be cool to have a place to post our writings :)

Dear John,


How moving! If one could capture stillness, this would be it.

Thank-you!

And I like your idea about a post for writings/poems- from us.

How 'bout you post one?
