Imagination Does Not Exist

August 17, 2012 at 3:38 pm UTC

You should come close to me tonight wayfarer
For I will be celebrating you.
Your beauty still causes me madness,
Keeps the neighbours complaining
When I start shouting in the middle of the night
Because I can’t bear all this joy.

I will be giving birth to suns.
I will be holding forests upside down
Gently shaking soft animals from trees and burrows
Into my lap.What you conceive as imagination
Does not exist for me.

Whatever you can do in a dream
Or on your mind-canvas
My hands can pull – alive – from my coat pocket.

But let’s not talk about my divine world.
For what I most want to know
Tonight is:

All about

Hafiz (1325-1389)
