All the Hemispheres

Today, after a lovely walk with my dog in the magnificent abundance of Mother Earth, I was called upon to share this poem.  May your heart be as blessed as mine feels by the reading of this beautiful poem.

All The Hemispheres

Leave the familiar for a while.
Let your senses and bodies stretch out

Like a welcomed season
Onto the meadows and shores and hills.

Open up to the Roof.
Make a new water-mark on your excitement
And love.

Like a blooming night flower,
Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness
And giving
Upon our intimate assembly.

Change rooms in your mind for a day.

All the hemispheres in existence
Lie beside an equator
In your heart.

Greet Yourself
In your thousand other forms
As you mount the hidden tide and travel
Back home.

All the hemispheres in heaven
Are sitting around a fire

While stitching themselves together
Into the Great Circle inside of


Hāfez (1325/26–1389/90) was a Persian poet.

    WW, this is also a perfect poem for an outdoor retreat gathering- a real “soul opener”. Thanks!
