Moon Language

With That Moon Language
Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky

Admit something:

Everyone you see, you say to them, "Love me."

Of course you do not do this out loud; otherwise,

someone would call the cops.

Still, though, think about this, this great pull in us

to connect.

Why not become the one who lives with a full moon

in each eye that is always saying,

with that sweet moon language,

what every other eye in this world is dying to hear?


  1. What a charming poem and giddy notion!

    Happy VD, dear 8!

  2. "These are a few of my favorite things" why the lyric and tune popped in my head at the mention of (just) moon, I do not know. But yes, what e said. :-)

  3. Bwaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!!! (the happy kind)

  4. I love this! I think my version is that I tend to smile and do that little kid wave at just about everyone I come across, and I'm happy to report about 80% or more smile and save right back at me :-)

    Hope you are feeling and healing better every day
