Best Poem of Leonard Dabydeen

Hudhud

It raged in mighty anger
like a hungry cougar in motion
leaping
catapulting
uprooting bedrocks
and wailing trees
people everywhere awed
unable to shriek
or hide their brittle limbs
in sinuous motion
every stone unturned
every hope blunted
like an un-kindled diya
hudhud hooded cities
without a tinge of regret
then a quiet moment oozes
out of the wreckage
only to let the eye see
how nature endures
bad moments of our lives.

Read the full of Hudhud

In God We Trust

If so much in faith in God we trust
our love to share forever we must
lift our spirits in outreach so high
sifting away the rubbles to see the sky
every darkness in time will vanish
every light will sparkle without tarnish.

If with bruised hands our pain we must endure
our hope in time will keep us secure

[Hata Bildir]
