Poem of the Week

Don’t surrender
your loneliness
too quickly

Let it cut
more deep

Let it ferment
and season you
as few human
or even divine
ingredients can.

Something missing in my heart tonight
Has made my voice so soft
My eyes so tender
My need of God
Absolutely Clear.

– Hafiz, trans. by Daniel Ladinsky in The Gift.
