I Have Learned So Much From God

Via Andrew Sullivan:

I
Have
Learned
So much from God
That I can no longer
Call
Myself A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim
A Buddhist, a Jew.

The Truth has shared so much of Itself
With me
That I can no longer call myself
A man, a woman, an angel
Or even pure
Soul.

Love has
Befriended Hafiz so completely
It has turned to ash
And freed
Me

Of every concept and image
My mind has ever known.

Hafiz, Persian poet (1315 – 1390), translated by Daniel Lazinsky.  Thanks to David for the link.
