The Vault of Heaven


Inspired from Rumi’s Poem

These sweet words we shared between us,
The vault of heaven has concealed in its heart.
One day, they will pour down like rain.
Our secrets will germinate in the soil of the universe.

Translated by Kabir Helminski and Lida Saedian

آن خوش سخنان که ما بگفتیم به هم
در دل دارد نهفته این چرخ به خم
یکروز چو باران کند او غمازی
بر روید سر ماز صحن عالم
