quatrain 1115

Zara Houshmand translation is at sadness and silence, with a shell of a commentary from me.

Sunlight also offers these two versions:
I am happy
when I am sad
I am together
when fallen apart
like earth
when I am silent
I have thunder
hidden inside

translation by Nader Khalili

When compassion fills my heart,
free from all desire,
I sit quietly like the earth.
My silent cry echoes like thunder
throughout the universe.

trans by Azima Melita Kolin and Maryam Mafi
