Positions of Love

“There are so many positions of love:

each curve on a

branch,

the thousand ways your eyes can hold us,

the infinite shapes each mind

can draw,

the spring orchestra of scents and sounds wafting through the air,

the currents of light combusting like

passionate

lips,

the revolution of the universe’s skirt, whose folds

contain other worlds,

our every sigh that falls against

His inconceivably close,

omnipresent,

divine

body. “

Hafez

I love the line “whose folds contain other worlds”. It gives me an expansive feeling that conveys a sense of the enormity and unfathomable scale of the universe. If the universe is this big there is a place for me in it.
