the scent of light

Why Carry?


Why carry a

whole load of books

Upon your back

Climbing this mountain,

When tonight,

Just a few thoughts of God

Will light the holy fire.

A rendering of a Hafiz poem by Daniel Ladinsky

Beautiful poems like this one are recited in a CD with refreshing North Indian Classical Music in the background. The CD is called “Hafiz: The Scent of Light“.
