[Sunlight] Hidden behind dark veils woven by ourselves


Today, Sunlight offers two interpretations of Quatrain 57:


Love is our mother and
the way of our Prophet.
Yet, it is in our nature
to fight with Love.
We can't see you, mother,
hidden behind dark veils
woven by ourselves.

-- Translation by Azima Melita Kolin
and Maryam Mafi
Rumi: Whispers of the Beloved
HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, 1999


The manner and appearance of a prophet,
our secret origins, these are born
of a woman who still lives inside us,
though she's hiding from what we've become.

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