Chess game with God

by 14th century poet Hafiz:

What is the difference
Between your Existence
And that of a Saint? 


The Saint knows
That the spiritual path
Is a sublime chess game with God
And that the Beloved
Has just made such a Fantastic Move
That the Saint is now continually
Tripping over joy
And Bursting out in Laughter
And saying, "I Surrender!"


Whereas, my dear,
I am afraid you still think
You have a thousand serious moves.
