NO MORE LEAVING

At
Some point
Your relationship
With God
Will
Become like this:

Next time you meet Him in the forest
Or on a crowded city street

There won't be anymore

"Leaving."

That is,

God will climb into
Your pocket.

You will simply just take

Yourself

Along!

- Hafiz
(thanks again for the book, Ian)

Yay for Hafiz! and for Daniel Ladinsky! And I totally support you with the avoiding of beer and other such things. . Folks will often have cranberry or greatfuit juice at parties with drinking. Like you, I like to be really careful about what and when I drink.

Just keep your inherent perfection close to you and your thoughts. And Yay Ian. . though I don't know you!

Thanks, Andre! Glad to know you like Hafiz, too! (And support my non-drinking-ness :-)) We should share more poetry! :-)
