What is the difference

Between your experience of Existence
And that of a saint?

The saint knows
That the spiritual p
Is a sublime chess game with God

And that the Beloved

Has just made such a Fantastic Move

That the saint is now continually

Tripping over Joy

And bursting out in Laughter
And saying, "I surrender!"

Whereas, my dear,

I am afraid you still think

You have a thousand serious moves.
Hafiz about 1320-1389
