I came across a poem by Hafiz today, and it reminded me of a painting I made a few years ago. It was nice to see in his words, a similar sentiment to the one that was in me when I made the painting. Do you make any drawings or paintings? I'm much, much less familiar with painting than poetry but I still find it really fun. 

 

The Lute Will Beg,

by Hafez.


You need to become a pen
In the Sun´s hand.
We need for the earth to sing
Through our pores and eyes.
The body will again become restless
Until your soul paints all its beauty
Upon the sky...
