Poetry is my spirituality. One cannot rush reading a poem, but deliberation and thoughtfulness are necessary. A poem can express a thought or mood, or weave a story, as well as relay the intangible. A poem has the potential to speak directly to the soul, because its' essence isn't rooted in logic or convention; it forces us to closely examine the world and/or experience the sublime.
Lately Hafiz has been by my side, but I chose this poem by Borges because a) it's awesome b) I feel that Borges is overlooked as a poet. I'm a fan of his short stories too, but it's really his poetry that I've fallen in love with.
