[Sunlight] The sea is seeking you



Silence is the sea, and speech is like the river.
The sea is seeking you: don't seek the river.
Don't turn your head away from the signs offered by the sea.

Khâmoshi bahrast va goftan hamcho ju
bahr mi juyad torâ ju-râ ma-ju
Az eshârât-hâ-ye daryâ sar ma-tâb
khatm kon wa-Allâhu a`lam bi-al-sawâb

-- Mathnawi IV:2062-2063
