I love Tongue of the Hidden by Hafez but it is the video that I really enjoyed. I am teaching the Metaphysical at the moment and the imagery expressed in this video will be very helpful.

This is the very first animated poem I have listened to! I plucked it by chance after surfing, as I often do, at tangents! A tangent led me to this poem and I sat here, absorbed and still…. I thought it was a modern poet! It’s really amazed me, a very gentle, peaceful place. I’d love to have met the poet….. Thanks to all who have made it available like this to tangent surfers!!!
