I saw you dancing last night | Hafez

........I saw you dancing last night
on the roof of your house
..............................all alone.

I felt your heart longing for the Friend.
............I saw you whirling
beneath the soft bright rose
that hung from an invisible stem in the sky.

So I began to change into my best clothes
in hopes of joining you,
even though I live a thousand miles away.

And if you had spun like an immaculate sphere
..............................just two more times,
then bowed again so sweetly to the east,
you would have found God and me
.....................standing so near
.....................and lifting you into our arms.

- Hafez, persian sufi poet and mystic

+ to you Ira, the dear one
may you always be under Great Beloved's protection and grace.
