By Hafiz

Little by little,

You will turn into stars.

Even then, my dear,

You will only by

A crawling infant,

Still skinning your knees on God.

Little by little,

You will turn into

The whole sweet, amorous Universe

In heat

On a wild spring night,

And become so free

In a wonderful, secret

And pure Love

That flows

From a conscious,

One-pointed,

Infinite need for Light.

Even then, my dear,

The Beloved will have fulfilled

Just a fraction,

Just a fraction!

Of a promise

He wrote upon your heart.

When your soul begins

To Ever bloom and laught

And spin in Eternal Ecstasy-

O little by little,

You will turn into God.
