[Sunlight] The Invisible Hand



See how the hand is invisible while the pen is writing;
the horse careening, yet the rider unseen;
the arrow flying, but the bow is out of sight;
individual souls existing,
while the Soul of souls is hidden.


Dast panhân va qalam bin khatt-gozâr
asb dar jawlân va nâ-paydâ savâr
Tir parân bin va nâ-paydâ kamân
jân-hâ paydâ va panhân Jân-e jân

-- Mathnawi II:1303-1304
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
"Rumi: Daylight"
