Today

I do not want to step so quickly over a beautiful line on God’s Palm 
As I move through the earth’s 
Marketplace 
Today.

Something has happened
To my understanding of existence
That now makes my heart always full of wonder
And kindness.

I do not want to step so quickly
Over this sacred place on God’s body
That is right beneath your
Own foot

As I dance with
Precious life
Today.

 

 Today from Daniel Ladinsky, The Gift: Poems by Hafiz the Great Sufi Master
