Shah Jehan Ashrafi


Incognito


Incognito I go

Every moment hollow

Pearls to swines I throw

Either I or they need to grow

Without a name and without fame

Life is just gambling, a mere game

In clandestine I hide in shame

Nothing do I now claim

Air, water and fire the elements of trinity

Are they suffice to lead life with dignity?

My being has become a mere existence

My talents are not my efforts but fruits of inheritance...

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
