Emily Dickinson - The Sunrise runs for Both --

The Sunrise runs for Both --
The East -- Her Purple Troth
Keeps with the Hill --
The Noon unwinds Her Blue
Till One Breadth cover Two --
Remotest -- still --

Nor does the Night forget
A Lamp for Each -- to set --
Wicks wide away --
The North -- Her blazing Sign
Erects in Iodine --
Till Both -- can see --

The Midnight's Dusky Arms
Clasp Hemispheres, and Homes
And so
Upon Her Bosom -- One --
And One upon Her Hem --
Both lie --

fyi,I actually do not aeuqte the absolute عدل الهی (Justice of God) with the relative عدل زمینی (human justice). I tend to see the latter a fragmented reflection/realization of the former and the struggle toward the latter as a تکلیف (responsibility) given to human beings by God (انی جاعل فی الارض خلیفه Indeed I am putting a representative on earth. Translation/Interpretation from Quran, Chapter 2, Verse 31.RE: Regrettably, one cannot go to the public in Iran and state that this aim is a mirage – they prefer fairly tales. Actually, my experience has been exactly opposite. They have laughed at my metaphorical beard به ریش مجازیم خندیدند there when I have said such aim for a mirage will eventually lead to ZamZam of justice. To reach it though, one must struggle like هاجر. (Pun very much intended).
