I write and read spoken word, these are some of my more stable poems. Occasionally, I intend to post prose if I feel unsafe or otherwise concerned about posting it in another venue.
The title and url of the blog are drawn from Hafez, a 14th century Persian poet. Tthis translation is by Daniel Ladinsky.
One day the sun admitted,
I am just a shadow.
I wish I could show you
The Infinite Incandescence (Tej)
That has cast my brilliant image!
I wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in darkness,
The astonishing Light
Of your own Being
