National Poetry Month!

And you thought we forgot. Two poems today!

Two Giant Fat People by Rumi Hafiz

God and I have become
Like two giant fat people
Living in a tiny boat

We keep
Bumping into each other
And laughing.

Mismatched Newlyweds by Rumi Hafiz

Like a pair
Of mismatched newlyweds,
One of whom still feels very insecure,
I keep turning to God
Saying, “Kiss me.”

These and other amazing translations of Hafiz’s poems can be found in The Gift.
