[Sunlight] Live a fresh story -- Quatrain 1521


Today, Sunlight offers two interpretations of Quatrain 1521:


It's good to leave each day behind,
like flowing water, free of sadness.
Yesterday is gone and its tale told.
Today new seeds are growing.

-- Translation by Azima Melita Kolin
and Maryam Mafi
Rumi: Whispers of the Beloved
HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, 1999


happiness is to reach
the next post every day
like flowing water
free from stillness
and melancholy
yesterday is gone and
took away its talk
today we must live
a fresh story again

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