Mystical Mondays: entering the world of Hafiz


a striped rose that blesses my
unfolding years



How have you been encouraged?  

Can you imagine not being called to bloom with the roses?

Do you know I hope to see it?



How Did The Rose?

How

did the Rose

ever open its heart

and give to this world all of its beauty?

It felt the encouragement of light against its being,

otherwise we all remain too

frightened.
