Today by Hafiz

i
do not
want to step so quickly
over a beautiful line on god’s palm
as i ┬ámove through the earth’s
marketplace
today.

i do not want to touch any object in this world
without my eyes testifying to the truth
that everything is
my beloved.

something has happened
to my understanding of existence
that now makes my heart always full of wonder
and kindness.

i do not
want to step so quickly
over the sacred place on god’s body
that is right beneath your
own foot

as i
dance with
precious life
today.

-Hafiz
