Why Abstain?

Red roses and Hafiz poems always bring me back to life...




Why
Abstain from love
When like the beautiful snow goose
Someday your soul
Will leave this summer
Camp
Why
Abstain from happiness
When like a skilled lion
Your heart is
Nearing
And
Will someday see
The divine prey is
Always
Near
