Yanni-Reflections of Passion
What is laughter?
What is laughter? What is laughter?
It is God waking up! O it is God waking up!
It is the sun poking its sweet head out
From behind a cloud
You have been carrying too long,
Veiling your eyes and heart.
It is Light breaking ground for a great Structure
That is your Real body - called Truth.
It is happiness applauding itself and then taking flight
To embrace everyone and everything in this world.
Laughter is the polestar
Held in the sky by our Beloved,
Who eternally says,
"Yes, dear ones, come this way,
Come this way towards Me and Love!
Come with your tender mouths moving
And your beautiful tongues conducting songs
And with your movements - your magic movements
Of hands and feet and glands and cells - Dancing!
Know that to God's Eye,
All movement is a Wondrous Language,
And Music - such exquisite, wild Music!"
O what is laughter, Hafiz?
What is this precious love and laughter
Budding in our hearts?
It is the glorious sound
Of a soul waking up.....!
Every city is a dulcimer
The rising up
From light's embrace
You can see in a summer field or
In a child's dancing.
Every city is a dulcimer
That plays it's chorus against
The lid of a pot starts jumping
When water gets ecstatic from fire.
If I ever don't complete a sentence
While we are together
Accept my apologies and try to understand
This sweet drunk thought.
Birds initially had no desire to fly,
What really happened was this:
God once sat close to them
When He left
They missed him so much
Their great longing sprouted wings,
Needing to search the Sky.
Nothing evolves us like Love.
You Don’t Have to Act Crazy Anymore
You Don’t Have to Act Crazy Anymore –
We all know you were good at that.
Now retire, my dear,
From all that hard work you do
Of bringing pain to your sweet eyes and heart.
Look in a clear mountain mirror –
See the Beautiful Ancient Warrior
And the Divine elements
You always carry inside
That infused this Universe with sacred Life
So long ago
And join you Eternally
With all Existence – with God!
Awake, my dear.
to your sleeping heart.
Take it out
into the vast fields
And let it
When all your desires are distilled you will cast
just two votes: To love more and be happy.
Where have you taken your sweet song?
Come back and play me a tune.
I never really cared for the things of this world.
It was the glow of your presence
that filled it with beauty.
Come in, my dear
From that harsh world
That has rained elements of stone
Upon your tender face.
Should receive a toast from us
