Treasure Island

Shah Jehan Ashrafi


The Mystic


Invisible like the wind and crystal clear like water
The mystic's identity is so difficult to understand
His simplicity makes us fathom over his spirituality
His devotion remains a mystery to be decoded
In his rag, he has the stature of a king
A majestic behaviour seeps through his humility
He puts it plainly that he is not a worldly man
To be in quest of the Truth was he born
The materialistic world is not appealing
Instead of lying at the circumference
The mystic keeps moving to the inner core
He never speaks with a forked tongue
His message is straightforward:
The shore is made for weak people
The joy of living is in diving in the deep sea
Either you drown or you find the genuine pearls
Struggling against the waves requires courage
True knowledge lies in the heart of hearts…

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
