The Edge Poem by Sadiqullah Khan


The edge melted into ocean,
Who would cage ice in a frame.
Without knowing, and without sun.
How would we breathe air in water.
Alas! We were fish to climb the trees.
Or cows grazing near old ponds.

On the plight of polar bears of Arctic due to climate change.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
