>>>Book


With or without understanding words
Written on my pages that not my concern
After grating between two fingers
You may turn over from one to another
I am not in pain at all nor am I here
To tell you the meaning of meaning
I hold in-between two lines
Nor do I give you advices to re-open
Or to close the chapters, it is up to you
As I am not only for ideas arranged
In alphabetical order by the names
Of topics or authors and kept in libraries
I am more than those: a living symbol
Of your weakness in hearing, a sign
Of your forgetfulness: a burning example
Of incapacity of your memory and speech
Before misbehaving with me remember this.

    An excellently penned comparison between the similarities of a poet and a book! An in depth write, thought provoking also and finely expressed. I love how you don't dictate to the reader, leaving them completely and unconditionally free to do as they wish, to like the poet's writing or not, because either way, it has no affect on him. Wonderful work, Abdul! Your words, your book, always holds your reader spellbound, they are enchanting, meaningful and utterly artistic! Thank you for sharing. Blessings always... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
