“If you haven’t yet had the delight of dining with Daniel Ladinsky’s sweet, playful renderings of the musings of the great saints, I Heard God Laughing is a perfect appetizer. . . . This newly released edition of his first playful foray into Hafiz’s divinely inspired poetry is essential reading . . . . Ladinsky is a master who will be remembered for finally bringing Hafiz alive in the West.” —Alexandra Marks, The Christian Science Monitor

"You better start kissing me -- or else!"
"You don't have to act crazy anymore --
We all know you were good at that."
"The stars get clearly drunk
And crazy at night
And throw themselves
Across the sky."
"I know the way you can get
When you have not had a drink of Love."
"Do you know how beautiful you are?
I think not, my dear.
Yet Hafiz could set you upon a Stage
And worship you forever!"
"I have a thousand brilliant lies
For the question, How are you?"
"A poet is someone
Who can pour Light into a spoon,
Then raise it to nourish
Your beautiful parched, holy mouth."
If God is the Light and Hafiz is the spoon, then Daniel Ladinsky is the one holding you upright to receive the gift.
