[Sunlight] A day beyond and above


Today, Sunlight offers two interpretations of Quatrain 163:


What is this day with two suns in the sky?
Day unlike other days,
with a great voice giving it to the planet,
Here it is, enamored beings, your day!

-- Version by Coleman Barks
"Unseen Rain"
Threshold Books, 1986


what type of day is this
with two shining suns
a day beyond and above
every day known
a whirling cosmos is endowing
and calling everyone on earth
good news to those in love
call today your own

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