14c Persian poem and a Witch's "Kitchen Blessing"

I love really old poetry. This one is from "THE SUBJECT TONIGHT IS LOVE

60 Wild and Sweet Poems of Hafiz 14th century persian"

Verions by Daniel Ladinsky 1996

In A Tree House

Will someday split you open
Even if your life is now a cage,

For a divine seed, the crown of destiny,
Is hidden and sown on an ancient, fertile plain
You hold the title to.

Love will surely bust you wide open
Into an unfettered, blooming new galaxy

Even if your mind is now
A spoiled mule.

A life-giving radiance will come,
The Friend's gratuity will come -

O look again within yourself,
For I know you were once the elegant host
To all the marvels in creation.

From a sacred crevice in your body
A bow rises each night
And shoots your soul into God

Behold the Beautiful Drunk Singing One
From the lunar vantage point of love.

He is conducting the affairs
Of the whole universe

While throwing wild parties
In a tree house - on a limb
In your heart.

I also offer today a Witch's "Kitchen Blessing". This could be said while cooking or as a table blessing before eating.


Blessed be this Kitchen of Air, Fire, Water, and Earth.
Be warmed by the sacred light of the Goddess and the Horned One.
May all that is created here by means both magical and mundane bring
nourishment, healing, and sustenance, and cause harm to none.
With love and peace, with joy and magic, be now and always filled.
So mote it be!
