"Delicate" for Photo Friday

“Delicate” for Photo Friday and in honor of Dio de los Muertos
Stop Being So Religious
by Hafiz

Do Sad people have in

It seems
They have all built a shrine
To the past

And often go there
And do a strange wail and

What is the beginning of

It is to stop being
so religious

My love told me that today he is going to lay chrysanthemums on the grave of his fears. I honor this intention and reflect on the myriad ways that my fears have brought me the modicum of wisdom I have gained. Today, I celebrate the gift of my fears and honor the past. Also today, I release my need to wail and worship at the shrine of the past for today is the beginning of happiness. Today I plant the seeds of bliss.
May we all release our fears, integrate the wisdom that has come from the mistakes and fears of the past and may we playfully and joyfully celebrate this moment and every moment as it unfolds.
