Poetry was never supposed to be my thing. Seriously! For most of my life, and as a technologist, I've been completely disinterested. However, having awoken to new realities outside and within myself, there's now a new kind of life inside that's just crying out for expression. But that's not to say it's been easy! My early poems were awkward, I felt self-conscious and nothing I wrote seemed to come out right. Until I met Hafiz.
Out of all the spiritual authors I've read, it was Hafiz who murdered me. Hafiz was an avalanch of grace to write about God - something I'd never even considered. Today, there seems to be a poem for every movement and so, with nothing to do but let them pile up, I've decided to share them here. May they encourage you as they do me.
