Episode Two Hundred Four, Chain You To My Body

Blah, blah, blah....sometimes I get tired of words and what I really want is to feel struck dumb with the sincere tenderness of love and be still within the music of life. It appears, so does Hafiz.

Thank you for listening.

Music: I don't know why...just because I was led to this like a wordless inebriate to the drunk tank. The Gymnopédies, published in Paris in 1888, are three piano compositions written by French composer and pianist Erik Satie. The video is a stunning display of earthly delights, by the way. We are so fortunate to find ourselves on this gorgeous planet!

The original post in this series of poems by Hafiz (including an addendum regarding the authenticity of these poems) can be found here. Also, my thoughts on this series a year into these poems, HERE.
