Persian Poetry Sunday


Night cancels the business of day;
inertia recharges the mind.
Then the day cancels the night,
and inertia disappears in the light.
Though we sleep and rest in the dark,
doesn't the dark contain the water of life?
Be refreshed in the darkness.
Doesn't a moment of silence 
restore beauty to the voice?
Opposites manifest through opposites:
in the black core of the heart
God created the eternal light of love. 

--Rumi
