Rookie (Karachi, Pakistan)

Awakening!


Melodious dreams were soothing little Hans’ sleep.
The clear clarion tone mingled with his slumber, deep.

The night rhymed delightful in the lee,
But no one ever knew, there was a storm to creep.

Eventually the cooling wild wind surrounded the valley.
The thunder struck, the birds whooped & rattled the jalousie.

Little Hans woke up aghast by the sudden freak,
Perceived with wonder, how happened the unforeseen!

The clattering window took his leer heed;
He hastened to seal the open breach.

But there then he heard a kitten’s weep,
A mewling kitten in the alfresco, it was indeed.

Pronto the valiant said; “To her help, I’ll proceed”.
With tip toe steps, among the scantly leaves, towards the weak he
treads.

Alas! The insentient perked the soul; nobly being amidst angles,
A little boy con nix dither, nix jitter, nix angst.

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
