All The Hemispheres
Leave the familiar for a while.
Let your senses and bodies stretch out
Like a welcomed season
Onto the meadows and shores and hills.
Open up to the Roof.
Make a new water-mark on your excitement
Like a blooming night flower,
Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness
Upon our intimate assembly.
Change rooms in your mind for a day.
All the hemispheres in existence
Lie beside an equator
In your heart.
In your thousand other forms
As you mount the hidden tide and travel
All the hemispheres in heaven
Are sitting around a fire
While stitching themselves together
Into the Great Circle inside of
You. ~ Hāfiz
Lydia – first well deserved the topic Creative Writing –
Your words and content is brilliant and creative – nothing else we can add…compliments!
I am pleased that you like this poem. Since I came up with the idea to showcase one poem on Saturdays, I’ve had fun searching books and the web for the perfect poem to post. If only one person enjoys these posts, I am honored because I know that there are millions of blogs out there that you can read, and you choose mine.
Anyway. as I am no poet, the exercise has given me a new appreciation and interest in the subject.
Thank you for taking the time to read my posts and going out of your way to comment. I sincerely appreciate you.
