Abdul Wahab


>That's the thing that is there


The wind can blow anywhere any-time
straight or zigzag, with or without murmur
the river can flow whenever it wished
but you told me never to come harming my career
that’s the thing that is there
which I see in the flights of your husky voice
in the colours of your rainbow eyes
by which I vie against the beauty of
sunsets as well as sunrise

with a bag full of it
I can stay way miles after miles
Cross over thirty oceans and jump down from the top of the hill
Like a cactus I can remain alive without rain
in the wilderness of life it’s a fresh air to me like the morning

That’s the spirit
Which I get after eating up the fruit
Which you inject in that tree
Under whose shadow
I work I sweat
Nourishes the plants of hope
So strong so lovely..

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
