So much from God
That I can no longer

A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim
A Buddhist, a Jew.

The Truth has shared so much of itself
With me

That I can no longer call myself
A man, a woman, an angel
Or even pure

Love has
Befriended Hafiz so completely
It has turned to ash
And Freed

Of every concept and image
My mind has ever known.

'I Have Learned So Much'
By. Daniel Ladinsky

Well watching my Depeche Mode Tour of the Universe : Live in Barcelona DVD the other day, during the performance of the song "Precious" which deeply resonates with me and is one of the songs I consider to describe my life. It was a beautiful  performance but what caught my attention even more was the poem on their screen backdrop as it's revealed slowly on a typewriter. Translated by American poet Daniel Ladinsky, by Iranian poet Hafez. "I Have Learned So Much"
So honest, beautiful, pure, simple, true. I love it.
