A Good Advice 720-B/W

Click HERE to Rumi's advice :-)

That is better. Let us talk love, then, so we shall remain silent!

Although we could, instead, once again follow Rumi's advice...

Very funny! But we can talk more wine on our way home...

Zebra Pragmatism 719-B/W

Zebra is playing *The Shaykh's always Right* (lyrics and chords, see below), a parody of *The Preacher and the Slave* which itself is a parody of *In the Sweet By and By*, a Christian Gospel inspired by Psalm 23 *The Good Shepherd*.


Bearded preachers come out every Fajr:
they know well what is wrong and what's right!
So when asked about something to drink
to the Holy Qur'an they do cling:

You will drink, by and by,
up in Paradise for sure you'll have wine
if you fast, pray and obey:
wine tomorrow and water today...

In the Tariqa the Enlightened they play:
«Say your wird! Shut your mouth!! Don't complain!!!
Work for me and keep quiet:
I am the Shaykh and the Shaykh's always right!».
-What an I!-

Is this another pie in the sky?

Symbolical, you say?

Ha ha ha ha! Thank you, Pir!! How good it is!!! To sing, to dance, to drink...

Ala ya ayyuha as-Saqi... 717-B/W

الا یا ایها الساقی ادر کاسا و ناولها
که عشق آسان نمود اول ولی افتاد مشکل‌ها

Thursday, June 16, 2016


That ghazal alone was enough to keep my heart alive!

Wednesday, June 15, 2016


الا یا ایها الساقی ادر کاسا و ناولها
که عشق آسان نمود اول ولی افتاد مشکل‌ها

به بوی نافه‌ای کاخر صبا زان طره بگشاید
ز تاب جعد مشکینش چه خون افتاد در دل‌ه

مرا در منزل جانان چه امن عیش چون هر دم
جرس فریاد می‌دارد که بربندید محمل‌ها

به می سجاده رنگین کن گرت پیر مغان گوید
که سالک بی‌خبر نبود ز راه و رسم منزل‌ها

شب تاریک و بیم موج و گردابی چنین هایل
کجا دانند حال ما سبکباران ساحل‌ها

همه کارم ز خود کامی به بدنامی کشید آخر
نهان کی ماند آن رازی کز او سازند محفل‌ها

حضوری گر همی‌خواهی از او غایب مشو حافظ
متی ما تلق من تهوی دع الدنیا و اهملها

And although he simply exchanges the usual "don't" with the unusual "do"...

Ha Ha! Yes!! You Ladies are right!!! That distich is Hafez's best...

Maybe... maybe it is because many among the Sufis are on the Path of Blame!

Tuesday, June 7, 2016


Hafez chastises the Sufis as fakes and hypocrites...
And yet they claim him as one of them...

Monday, June 6, 2016


I rather would ask: Why the Sufis say Hafez is a Sufi?...
