The Sun Never Says by Daniel Ladinsky

ladinskyMany mistakenly attribute American Daniel Ladinskky’s well treasured poetry to Hafiz and other influential mystic poets. After years of administering to the poor in western India, Ladinsky found inspiration to not only follow the practices of Meher Baba but also interpret and write about them using an original, yet common, belief in a faithfulness to “the living spirit.” With numerous publications, Ladinsky is a best selling author who crafted his niche in religious and inspirational works. His abilities to transcend and transform the everyday into the extraordinary has been widely accepted and wildly reprinted by many popular figures and most of the world’s largest (and smallest) religions.


Even
After
All this time
The sun never says to the earth,

“You owe
Me.”

Look
What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the
Whole
Sky.
