Someone Should Start Laughing – A Poem by Hafiz

January 7, 2011

I have a thousand brilliant lies
For the question:

How are you?

I have a thousand brilliant lies
For the question:

What is God?

If you think that the Truth can be known
From words,

If you think that the Sun and the Ocean

Can pass through that tiny opening Called the mouth,

O someone should start laughing!
Someone should start wildly Laughing –Now!

From “I Heard God Laughing: Renderings of Hafiz” translated by Daniel Ladinsky
