Someone Should Start Laughing

I have a thousand brilliant lies

For the question:



How are you?



I have a thousand brilliant lies

For the question:



What is God?



If you think that the Truth can be known

From words,



If you think that the Sun and the Ocean



Can pass through that tiny opening

Called the mouth,



O someone should start laughing!



Someone should start wildly Laughing –

Now!



From: “I Heard God Laughing: Renderings of Hafiz: by Daniel Ladinsky.

This book of Hafiz is awesome. One of the most popular ones in France recently, more than rumi. I remember reading it a while back, and there was lots of great poems there.
