The Search

Would you think it odd if Hafiz said, pilule
“I am in love with every church
And mosque
And temple
And any kind of shrine
Because I know it is there
That people say the different names
Of the One God.”


Would you tell your friends I was a bit strange
if I admitted I am indeed in love with every mind
And heart and body.


O, illness I am sincerely Plumb crazy
About your every thought and yearning
And limb
Because, my dear, I know
That it is through these
That you search
For Him
