Hafiz (Daniel Ladinsky) - I Have Learned So Much

I Have Learned So Much

by Hafiz (Daniel Ladinsky)


Original Language English

I
Have
Learned
So much from God
That I can no longer
Call
Myself

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
Soul.

Love has
Befriended Hafiz so completely
It has turned to ash
And freed
Me

Of every concept and image
My mind has ever known.


-- from The Gift: Poems by Hafiz the Great Sufi Master, by Daniel Ladinsky
