Hafiz, A Sketch & Coloring Shared

Plant so that
your own heart
will grow.

Love so God will think,

"Ahhhhh, I got kin in that body.
I should start inviting that soul
over for coffee and rolls."

Because this is a food
Our starving world needs.

because that is
the purest sound.

-Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky

Drawing - pencil sketch drawn Saturday afternoon.
To my mama who reads, I say, "Look Mom, arms!!"
The Joy of Coloring continues...please click HERE to see what filled and warmed my heart yesterday!! The coloring page I shared was shared even further. I LOVE IT!


  1. Love it! As spring approaches here in the land of snow this reading is a good metaphor for the work in the gardens. I think i will copy it on to a piece of paper to stick in my book of prayers I drag around the farm with me.
