The Sun Never Says
Even after all this time,
the sun never says to the earth,
‘You owe me.’
Look what happens with a love like that.
It lights up the whole sky.
Remnants of the romantic high from Valentine's Day are still floating around in my head, so I wanted to share the above poem and dedicate this post to the beautiful thing that is.....LOVE.
I discovered the Persian poet Hafiz* only a few years ago, and at that moment his beautiful, inspiring poetry dating as far back as the 1300's ... immediately fell into my 'favourite soulful things' world.
This poem is certainly one of my favourites... expressing all the beautiful, romantic and sincere notions of unconditional love, purity and humbleness. May this soulful poem give anyone reading this, inspiration to embrace this type of 'sun love'. An unconditional and unlimited love that doesn't hold back, that doesn't demand, that doesn't calculate... but is just free and pure and beautiful xo
