A Fragment Poem by Yasmeen Khan


Wind’s fingers on
summer’s Sumerian lyre
tunes all from antiquity
trails with waves
on sand dunes

    This is reminiscent of the lyric fragments of Sappho in sheer beauty and power. Exquisite verse. (Report) Reply

    a golden treasure in the sun as summer is ending, a metaphor of life. (Report) Reply

    A snapshot captured in words, a motion described motionless
    captured in the words of time. I enjoyed this poem.
    I invite you to read Flow Flames, it is different from
    my normal madness. (Report) Reply
