Would you think it odd if Hafez said,
“I am in love with every church
And any kind of shrine
Because I know it is there
That people say the different names
Of the One God.”
Would you tell your friends
I was a bit strange if I admitted
I am indeed in love with every mind
And heart and body.
O I am sincerely
About your every thought and yearning
Because, my dear,
That it is through these
That you search for Him.
