The Sun ! / The Lofty one.

The sun owns the greatest  fire.

Yet she gives the world her light.

The lofty standing on a mountain.

Thinks all people are small in his sight.

He doesn’t know people see him,

Much smaller at that height .

Giving a person one flower while he is alive,

Worth a million flowers to be put on his grave site.

    I love that part about the lofty on the mountain seeing others as small, but the others looking up and seeing him as small….it’s all about one’s perspective, isn’t it….

    Very, very true. Caring for anyone when they are alive is more important than all the rituals after they are no more.

    Beautifully said, Jalal.
    Yes, the lofty are only so in their own sight. Would be they consider the sun, as you wrote, who shines upon all freely.
    A beautiful analogy, Jalal.
    Please accept this beautiful flower –
