Never Say It Is Not God

I taste what you taste. I know the kind of lyrics
your Soul most likes. I know which sounds will become
Resplendent in your mind and bring such pleasure
Your feet will jump and whirl.

When anything touches or enters your body
Never say it is not God, for He is
Just trying to get close.

I have no use for divine patience -- my lips are always
Burning and everywhere. I am running from every corner
Of this world and sky wanting to kiss you;

I am every particle of dust and wheat -- you and I
Are ground from His Own Body. I am rioting at your door;
I am spinning in midair like golden falling leaves
Trying to win your glance.

I am sweetly rolling against your walls and your shores
All night, even though you are asleep. I am singing from
The mouths of animals and birds honoring our
Beloved's promise and need: to let
you know the Truth.
My dear, when anything touches or enters your body
Never say it is not God, for He and I are
Just trying to get close to you.

God and I are rushing
From every corner of existence, needing to say,
"We are yours."

- Hafez

I am currently reading, one after another, every novel written by the American author Don DeLillo.

The Savage Garden by Mark Mills, excellent I thought.

I just finished 'Into The Wild' by John Krakauer, absolutely amazing book, I read it in 2 days i loved it so much. Greatly detailed and researched account of Christopher McCandless journey, not just on the road but in life. And it tries to go into why he did what he did, and the reasons behind his trek. Amazing! Also can't wait to see the movie!

have you read 'Into Thin Air' by the same author? It's an amazing book too - i couldn't put it down and it started off my interest in mountaineering books! i haven't read the one you suggested so will look out for that.

Hey, I'm currently reading the same book too! Halfway through now. :) And this guy who was sitting next to me on the plane two days ago told me that he'd just finished reading it recently.

Just finished "Filth" by Irvine Welsh. Amazing book, very evocative. Not for the weak-stomached!!
I love all his books, he thinks outside the box!

I had a look at this in the bookshop today as my next travel read. Looks a great story, but not long enough to keep you going on the beach for a week!!

Dark continent My Black Arse by Sihle Khumalo.
He's funny as, yet tells it like he see's it as he attempt to do the Cape Town to Cairo using public transport. Not usually into this sort of thing, but this book has changed my mind. If your heading to Africa have a look.
