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.

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.

Stunning! I'm no good at critiques but this is truly amazing! I'm not familiar with farsi but the translation is beautiful, im sure its something many can relate to. I wish I could read the original because your translation is beautiful, I'd love to understand the exact words

You have true talent, you deserve the DD <3

So, so beautiful. I can never get enough of Persian art. Makes me miss my family and the sheer beauty of Iran. I would say something poetic, or even semi- congratulatory but sadly my Farsi is that of a young child as far as conversing goes. Anyways- Salam and khodofez, congrats, and it is beautiful.
