[Sunlight] How should a bird fly except with its own kind?



When two people have come into touch with each other,
without any doubt, they have something in common.
How should a bird fly except with its own kind?


Chon do kas bar ham zanad bi hich shakk
dar miyâneshân hast qadr-e moshtarak
Kay parad morghi magar bâ jens-e khvod
sohbat-e nâ-jens gurast o lahd

-- Mathnawi V: 752-755
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
