Naught!

بنگر ز جهان چه طرف بربستم ، هيچ
وزحاصل ايام چه در دستم ، هيچ
شمع طربم ولي چو بنشستم ، هيچ
خود جام جم ام ولي چو بشکستم ، هيچ
خاقاني

Behold ! what pleasure I took from the world, naught.
what I gained from passing of time, naught.
I've been a candle in your gathering of joy,
while I'm going out, what happens? naught.
I'm as “Cup of Jamshid” (showing you everything)
if I break what will happen? … naught.

Under the pretext of three years activity on photoblog.

      Keep your flame burning brightly and your photos coming we are honoured by your presence Masoud. So lovely!

      It's always better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. Very significant work.

      Masoud, the photo is so beautiful and the poem so full of sadness. Please don't leave.

      Very beautiful image and words, but a sense of melancholy to them...hope you will be staying at least another year

      Interesting poem and image...though I am sure a lot of people would feel differently if your flame were to go out, Masoud!
