Your body is my prayer carpet.
For I can see in your eyes
That you are exquisitely woven
With the finest silk and wool
And that pattern upon your soul
Has the signature of God
And all your moods and colors of love
Come from His Divine vats of dye and gold.
~ Hafiz

Buried Jewels

The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them. The hunt to uncover those jewels, that’s creative living. The courage to go on that hunt in the first place, that’s what separates a mundane existence from a more enchanted one.

~ Elizabeth Gilbert – Big Magic
