Love Is The Funeral Pyre By Hafiz (Daniel Ladinsky)

Love is the Funeral Pyre by Hafiz (Daniel Ladinsky)

Love is
The funeral pyre
Where I have laid my living body.
All the false notions of myself
That once caused fear, pain,
Have turned to ash
As I neared God.
What has risen
From the tangled web of thought and sinew
Now shines with jubilation
Through the eyes of angels
And screams from the guts of
Infinite existence
Love is the funeral pyre
Where the heart must lay
Its body.
