Time for Silence

The beauty of the mountain
is talked about most from a distance,
 not while one is scaling the summit
with life at risk.

That is the time for silence,
and drawing upon all your skills
so you might return from the cloud's domain
and inspire others
to breathe closer to God,
while still human,
the way you did.

--Hafiz, from A Year with Hafiz
