Spiritual Awakening poetry from a Sufi master Sufi Poetry by Hafiz



Inner Guidance & Mysticism
We are a couple of barroom sailors



I wake from a nap
And the same clear words greet my mind
That I say every day upon waking,

Spiritual Inspiration

"Where can I find the Friend?"

Sufi Poetry by Hafiz

I eat and dress and labor
For only one reason.

Spiritual Inspiration

But why explain about the essential today
And demean the holy?

Spiritual Inspiration

We are a couple of barroom sailors,
Marooned,

Sufi Poetry by Hafiz

In need of good drink and fine company
To true our perceptions.

Spiritual Inspiration

Otherwise,
I get a tad concerned about that odd look
That sometimes creeps into your eyes--

Sufi Poetry by Hafiz

That seems to mistake me for a pretty,
Available mermaid.

Spiritual Inspiration

Upon waking each day
My first words to my heart always are

Sufi Poetry by Hafiz

"Tell me all your news of
Love."
