Today I’ve been reading Daniel Ladinsky’s translations of the poetry of Hafiz, a Sufi Master from the 14th century.  Since my husband keeps threatening to teach me how to do algebra I am putting in a link for a poem entitled “Lousy at Math”.  The poem resonates on so many levels!  Tell me what you think of it!

This poem was inspired by a crack in the wall of an apartment building next to a  little tapas bar in Denver, CO.  The building had once been strong and beautiful, but now it was beginning to crumble.  We all crumble sometimes.  Do you have a story of a time when your facade was slipping?
