Naseer Ahmed Nasir Poems
Dreams Lost In Water
No distance ever separates Dreams and desires No mirror ever dissolves Reflection and water
Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs)
They leave their homes Unwillingly forced And follow their fate Through fields and trails

* Poem For A Poem
She asks me What is a poem? Her shapely nose,
Don't Ever Come, O December
Look December Don't ever come now! Look, December Deserts unnumbered have expanded in me.
* A Dream Fallen Out Of Sleep
Outside the abode of our sleep Somewhere a dream burns Somewhere tears sparkle Somewhere a moon smoulders
A beautiful singing bird Imprisoned in a golden cage Waiting to be freed Since the hominoid age!
* White Clouds
White clouds Morphing wonderfully Watch those bears Changing into

Dreams Lost In Water
No distance ever separates
Dreams and desires
No mirror ever dissolves
Reflection and water
In one's eye
What graph would you make
Of lines of thought?
The triangle of pain
Is without any angle
Have dreams alike
But sleep and night-watch
Are never the same!
Names are forgotten
Codes alone come to mind
In nuclear setups
Dreams of radiant generations
By atomic explosions
Are terra and sol
In the dance of death
God is a ...
