    ---------------------
    The minute I heard my first love story,
    I started looking for you, not knowing
    how blind that was.

    Lovers don't finally meet somewhere,
    they're in each other all along.
    ------------------

    --------------------

    When I am with you, we stay up all night,
    When you're not here, I can't get to sleep.
    Praise God for these two insomnias!
    And the difference between them.


    -------------------


    With the Beloved's water of life, no illness remains
    In the Beloved's rose garden of union, no thorn remains.
    They say there is a window from one heart to another
    How can there be a window where no wall remains?


    -------------------

    Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy,
    absentminded. Someone sober
    will worry about things going badly.
    Let the lover be.

    ----------------

    I think this is one of the best poems about compassion, which, I add, is one expression of love.



    Hafiz- THE HEART IS RIGHT

    The
    Heart is right to cry

    Even when the smallest drop of light,
    Of love,
    Is taken away.

    Perhaps you may kick, moan, scream
    In a dignified
    Silence,

    But you are so right
    To do so in any fashion

    Until God returns
    To
    You.

    Rumi, Hafez and the other Sufi writers write with lots of sensuality and beauty. One of my most prized possesions is a book I bought in Iran with their writings and gorgeous artwork.

    Art as Flirtation and Surrender

    In your light I learn how to love.
    In your beauty, how to make poems.
    You dance inside my chest,
    where no one sees you,
    but sometimes I do,
    and that sight becomes this art.
    -------------------------------------------------


    how very close

    how very close
    is your soul with mine
    i know for sure
    everything you think
    goes through my mind

    i am with you
    now and doomsday
    not like a host
    caring for you
    at a feast alone

    with you i am happy
    all the times
    the time i offer my life
    or the time
    you gift me your love



    offering my life
    is a profitable venture
    each life i give
    you pay in turn
    a hundred lives again

    in this house
    there are a thousand
    dead and still souls
    making you stay
    as this will be yours

    a handful of earth
    cries aloud
    i used to be hair or
    i used to be bones

    and just the moment
    when you are all confused
    leaps forth a voice
    hold me close
    i'm love and
    i'm always yours

    ghazal number 1515, translated by Nader Khalili

    Thank you, amar_m, bradySF and kissing pro for the beautiful sharings. I luv poetry and mystical poetry is my favorite for its mystery, connectivity, sensuality and presence. In Rumi, Hafiz and the like I experience the oneness...love-compassion, there is no other. Love of friend, mentor, lover, God and all merge in an altered state of being. These days such poems are breaking open for me from inside out. It is where I reside. This "crazy love poetry," of which Rumi speaks...my life is altered.

    To heal the burning of your sorrow,
    I seek a flame.
    To gather the dust of your door,
    I seek the palms of my hands.
    To deal with you hiding behind your holiness,
    I seek a good time instead.

    Roses are Red,
    Violets are Blue,
