It Felt Love

Red and Yellow Rose

How

Did the rose

Ever open its heart

And give to this world

All its

Beauty?

It felt the encouragement of light

Against its

Being,

Otherwise,

We all remain

Too

Frightened.

Hafez (1325–1390)

Khwāja Shamsu d-Dīn Muhammad Hāfez-e Shīrāzī

    Oh, I want the Little Red Farm House! My Eastern European genes include a green thumb that doesn’t get used much in the City. I crave flowers and gardening. Between your rose, poem and allylisterflowers.wordpress.com — I am soothed. XO
