[Sunlight] "Alive with other life" -- Quatrain 403


Today, Sunlight offers two interpretations of Quatrain 403:


We have this way of talking,
and we have another.
Apart from what we wish
and what we fear my happen,
we are alive with other life,
as clear stones
take form in the mountains.

-- Version by Coleman Barks
Open Secret
Threshold Books, 1984


I have a tongue
beside this tongue
I have a hell and paradise
beside the ones you know
free spirited humans are
alive in others' souls
their pure diamond
is from another source

-- Translation by Nader Khalili
"Dancing the Flame"
Cal-Earth, 2001
