[Sunlight] "In silence" -- Quatrain 337



There is a channel between voice and presence,
a way where information flows.

In disciplined silence the channel opens.
With wandering talk, it closes.

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

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

There is a thread from the heart to the lips
where the secret of life is woven.
Words tear the thread
but in silence
the secrets

-- Translation by Azima Melita Kolin
and Maryam Mafi
Rumi: Hidden Music
