Shaun Downey, "The White Window" (2003)
I call the Sun to witness
and its early morning splendor...
and the day which reveals its radiance...
and the Soul
with the harmoniousness that is given to it
and the enlightenment to know what is unfitting and what is integral to it.
The one who purifies it succeeds
and the one who confines it comes to grief.
Qur'an 91:1,3,7-9 (610-632)
