This Sane Idea: A Poem by Hafiz

I’ve been pondering the words of this poem by Hafiz a lot lately. I thought it was the perfect day to share it.


Let your

Intelligence begin to rule

Whenever you sit with others

Using this sane idea:

Leave all your cocked guns in a field

Far from us,

One of those damn things

Might go




From The Gift: Poems by Hafiz the Great Sufi Master by Daniel Ladinsky.
