The Sun Was Never A Child by farzaddesign The Sun Was Never A Child by farzaddesign
Just experimenting, The type is a typeface I modified.. it is a poem by the Iranian poet Sirous Jamali.
Here’s an unofficial horrible translation I will do my best… it should butcher the poem because I’m not a translator, but it will get the main message across.. minus the graceful manner in which it does it in Farsi.

Come sit. There is space.
The one who promised to bring me dreams
came and took away my sleep too
I was naive, thinking about the sun's childhood
but I completely forgot
that the sun was never a child.

Atmospheric and almost transcendent.

This is gorgeous!  What is the Persian?  I am having trouble reading the calligraphy.  It looks like the first line would read "There is room, come, sit," but I have trouble reading the rest.

Farsi is the most beautiful language. I hope to learn it someday.
