Can you please give me your interpretation and opinion of this poem?
Here is a poem that I would like to hear your opinion or interpretation on : It is from Hafiz.
“I have learned so much from God
That I can no longer call myself
The Truth has shared so much of itself with me that I can no longer call myself
or even pure soul.
Love has befriended me so completely
It has turned to ash and freed me
of every concept and image
my mind has ever known.”
-Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky in the book “The Gift”
