in your write. If its not included in the poem it cannot be considered
for an award (sorry).

I have borrowed this from one of Hafiz lovely spiritual poems and
I hope you enjoy working with it!


A Potted Plant

I pull a sun from my coin purse each day.

and "AT NIGHT I LET
MY PET THE MOON
RUN FREELY INTO THE SKY MEADOW"

If I whistled,

She would turn her head and look at me.

If I then waved my arms,

She would come back wagging a marvelous tail

Of stars.

There are always a few men like me

In this world

Who are house-sitting for God.

We share His royal duties:

I water each day a favorite potted plant

Of His--
This earth.

Ask the Friend for love.
Ask Him again.

For I have learned that every heart will get

What it prays for

Most.

"No More Leaving"
