In The Moment ~


هل فرشت العشب ليلا …وتلحفت الفضا

زاهدا في ما سياتي ناسيا ما قد مضى؟

وسكوت الليل بحر…موجه في مسمعك

وبصدر الليل قلب خافق في مضجعك

اعطني الناي وغن … وانسى داء ودواء

انما الناس سطور كتبت لكن بماء

-خليل جبران 

[Attempted translation]

Have you spread the earth as your mattress, and blanketed yourself in the stars

Neglectful of what will be, and forgetful of what was?

And the silence of the night is an ocean, whose every sound is heard

Give me a flute and I’ll play; forget sickness and its medicine

Humans are but lines written down in water.

-Khalil Gibran
