Best Poem of Farrukh Ahmad

The Sailor Of The Seven Seas

I don't know how many black curtains had to be raised to bring this morning.
The green leaves shiver in the orange grove.
The seven seas' tide has brought foam on your door-steps.
O Sailor of the seven seas, see, your ship calls at your door,
A still-life, like a picture it stands there.
No water reaches the helm, its sails do not flutter,
O Sailor, I entreat you, rise up,
You rise up and join the seamen,
You will find your ship sailing again in the seas,
Like a full-moon in the blue seas
Braving cloudy waves and crossing all obstacles.
Now you rise up, ...

To My Poem

Once again you open wide your window,
Let starry light fall on the cobweb of thought,
Let the wounded mind rise with your measure and rhyme,
Come once to this world beset with dilemma

I have never denied earthly needs,
(But remember : no escapism,
One who can easily get the hectic flush of joy
Never finds the road to struggle closed).
