    I love the metaphors. The realizations. The deep thinking. The light thinking. The bouncy feel to some. The dredging feel to others. Great work. I like it! :)

    A poet with a gentle temperament
    his words heavier than gold
    a sparkling light that guides
    that travel further than the cosmos
    knowledge weighted with wisdom
    it's source devine
    may his pen keep writing
    inked from the sufi heart of..Aufie Zophy!

    Aufie is a poetess makes streaks on our mind
    Feel good bush new visions
    Let’s feed our brain with all the best
    Positive thoughts, lofty aims, a loving chest
    Let’s focus on God’s way, forget the rest
    Search daily for some goodness in the news
    And sure your brain, just like the goose
    A golden egg a day it will produce

  • Rookie Abhay Vignesh L (3/8/2011 8:04:00 AM)

Just yesterday, it moved me to tears
While the children of John were playing their game
My peers were trampled to death, what a shame

When just before that, some bigger flowers were damaged
The children were scolded badly by John
But when my brothers were ravaged
It was noticed, sadly, by none

Today, however, I had a reason to smile
