Celebrate Yalda (longest night) with a prediction by Hafiz

PostAuthor: Anthea » Sat Dec 16, 2017 2:39 pm

Shab-e Yalda (Yalda night) a festival celebrated on the longest night of the year

As Kurds worldwide celebrate Newroz - Nowruz - Nawruz and assorted other spellings, then surely they must celebrate Yalda (though they may have a different name for it?

The longest and darkest night of the year is traditionally a time when friends and family gather together to eat, drink, often sharing poetry, until well after midnight.

Fruits and nuts are eaten and pomegranates and watermelons are particularly significant. The red color in these fruits symbolizes the crimson hues of dawn and glow of life.

I think that even Kurds in Iran read the faal (fortune) of the next year in Hafez's Divan.

Here is a site if you have not a book :

http://www.karoon.com/fal-e-hafez#sc

Mine is :

Ghazal 42
I long to open up my heart
For my heart do my part.
My story was yesterday’s news
From rivals cannot keep apart.
On this holy night stay with me
Till the morning, do not depart.
On a night so dark as this,
My course, how can I chart?
O breath of life, help me tonight
That in the morn I make a start.
In my love for you, I will
My self and ego thwart.
Like Hafiz, being love smart;
I long to master that art.

Ghazal 320

With a flood of tears, to sleep, I found my way
Thinking of you, in vain, I'd long and pray
To the vision of your brow I lost my cloak
I'd drink to the corner of the altar, old and gray.
Each thought that like a bird flies out as words
The strings of your hair would pluck and play.
Your face, like a vision, in my mind would form and fade
I kiss the face of the moon from far away.
My eyes follow the wine-bearer, ears the harp
Perhaps my eyes and ears my fortune would say and sway.
Till the morn, I paint the picture of your face
On the canvass of the eyes, while sleepless I lay.
With every song, the bearer would give me a cup
I'd sing a song, then drink without delay.
Happy was the time, Hafiz, and good fortune
In the name of long life and lovers every day.

Makes me think =((
