The rose petal

Hafez once wrote about a bird holding a rose petal.

As years went by, I realized it is the same petal upon which I lean, its delicate beauty helping me to remain standing in this world of perpetual confusion.

Kenza.


– Hafez (Shiraz, Iran – XIVth c.), Persian poet and Sufi mystic.
