New rubais for the New Year

We would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season and a wonderful New Year! Here are some newly translated rubais we think you will enjoy. Please let us know your thoughts… 

How long shall we be satisfied with the shapes and appearances of time?

How long shall we watch and smell existence?

I am tired of the materials and creatures of the present.

It’s time to see the Beauties of beauties.

But when I look at Him, I see my image;

And when I look at myself, I see His image.

[Rhyme of rubai ends with “M”; Golpinarli page, rubai #: 144, 44; Furuzanfar’s rubai #: 1256; Şefik Can’s rubai #: 1393]

I won’t grant your wishes until you abandon your desires.

I won’t give in until you accept my orders.

Stop your deceit,  stop playing dead.

I swear on your head and soul that I won’t give myself until you die first.

[M(page 277 of original Divan); G.143, 40; F.1287; Ş.1424]
