Sometimes I falter and fall,
but I know you are there to lift me up.
May Your love guide me through
the bumpy roads of life.
My spirit has been in slumber.
Please stir my spirit to life, so I may fill
my thirst with Your love and
not with the false promises of the world.
In the spirit of amazing Sufi poets like Hafiz and Rumi, I am going to challenge myself to write a Divine Love poem each day for 90 days. I have always been drawn to Sufi poets and hope to rejuvenate my prayer life by taking on this challenge. I hope this inspires others to either take on this challenge with me, or just recommit themselves to their own spiritual practice.
Here is an article on Hafiz that I found really I interesting:
I am floating out of self Into the vast sea of the Universe.Instead of feeling lost, I am finally home.
is love a myth? Is it a hidden treasure waiting to be
discovered by the devoted?
Love is an experience waiting to be embraced in each moment;
be like the mystics and open yourself to the mundane to discover
the profound experience of love that is everywhere,
including within each one of us.
I am grateful to have known you,
even if I had to say goodbye.
I loved our walks,
even when you forgot our conversations.
I am sad, but also filled with gratitude.
looking for something
I don’t quite know what
A purpose I long for,
a love that I’m searching for
