Stop Being So Religious ~ Poem by Hafiz

Art by Robert Sturman of Brian aganad on the beach doing yogaStop Being So Religious


Do sad people have in


It seems

They have all built a shrine

To the past

And often go there

And do a strange wail and


What is the beginning of


It is to stop being

So religious

Like That.

(“The Gift” – versions of Hafiz by Daniel Ladinsky)
