Hafiz, Rumi, Forough Farrokhzad, no one does poetry quite like the Persians. A friend in Tehran even once compared me to Forough, it made me blush because that was a compliment of the highest order. I wish I was as talented.
So why am I here. I’m here to share the fal-e hafiz, a way to find your future in a line. I might be exaggerating a bit but it is a form of divination in Persian tradition that helps one find answers to questions on their mind.
Click the link, http://www.hafizonlove.com/fal.htm, and concentrate, then press the button to discover the answer. You should find it in the first line you see when you open your eyes.
Before you go, let me share mine:
‘You brought me a thousand doubts’.
(Yikes! Not sure what to make of that line in relation to my question :/. It’s kind of freaking me out,
Supposedly there is more clarification to be found in the entire poem, I don’t know but see below.)
With your long curled eyelashes You brought me a thousand doubts When your sleepy eye flashes A thousand pains in me come out. O thou, companion of my heart Memories of friends my mind depart There is not a day that from the start Your memory I do not tout. The world is baseless and old Lovers shout out and scold Magic spells take their hold, This is love's sorrowful route. Separation puts me on fire My circumstances are dire May the nightly breeze inspire With a whiff of what it's all about. This world of space and time For Beloved ain't worth a dime Ruling the world is a crime If Beloved is without. If in my place, Beloved choose Another, then I greatly lose My life and soul I'll refuse Curses upon myself I spout. At dawn sings the nightingale O Beloved, yourself unveil In my head I cry and wail Of yesternight's dreamy bout. On my deathbed, when I rise I'll head straight for Paradise If only I can keep my eyes Upon the flame your candle sprouts. The tale of my desires That I cry out and shout Unmistakably inspires What Hafiz said without doubt
