Do you know of Hafiz the Sufi poet? http://peacefulrivers.homestead.com/...l#anchor_16035
It always smacks me right square in the heart.

Thank you for the link. I am more acquainted with the poetry of Rumi that I am of Hafiz. Think I started a thread about him here. You are right. This kind of expression does touch the heart. Speaking of which, a Tibetan heart practice (please forgive the lateral slipping of my mind!), Tonglen, has been my mainstay for a while now. It has helped me deal with some hard times. And for that I am very grateful.
Good stuff- poetry and matters of the heart.
I bow to the Light within you.
