[Sunlight] "It is less than an atom"



When He Himself is the light of your eye,
a hundred worlds like ours appear.
If this one looks bottomless and vast,
remember: to Omnipotence it is less than an atom.


Sad cho `âlam dar nazar paydâ konad
chon keh chashmet-râ be-Khvod binâ konad
Gar jahân pishast bozorg o bi bonist
pish-e Qodrat zarreh mi dân nist
In jahân khvod habs-e jân-hâ-ye shomâst
hin ravid ân su keh sahrâ-ye shomâst
In jahân majdud o ân khvod bi haddast
naqsh o surat pish-e ân ma`nâ saddast.

-- Mathnawi I: 523-6
