The Write Idea


Beautiful Empty Pages

Filed under: Poetry,Uncategorized — ljcollins @ 8:36 pm

Is there ever a day when Hafiz is not welcome?  I think not.  Therefore, some Hafiz for you today.

What kind of work
Can I do in this world?

Who would be kind enough
To hire an old holy bum,

One with a great reputation
For loving the charms

Of the lawless
And the wild artists and the lewd?

Maybe I could become a poet.
Maybe the Beloved

Will make my love so pure
That He will come to sit upon

All my beautiful empty pages
And when you come to look at them,

He might kick you
With His Beautiful Divine Foot.


  1. This could not have been more perfect for… certain people that you and I see when we look in our mirrors. 😀

  2. Yes, I’ve said for a long time, after some rough sailing, that God has big boots. For the country folk, that’s how you get kicked thru the goalposts of life. Thanks for the Hafiz.
