Aftab Alam

(15 th April 1967 / , , RANCHI,)

Why days are so deep and dark?


Why days are so deep and dark
And nights are lovely and bright?
What we lost? Where is the lark?
What game is on, why there a fright?

Why moon, looks like a highway-man
And stars stood like a silence observer?
Did heaven lose its heavenly sight? No,
Human lost the humanity; search, go..

What use of these eyes with lost vision!
Not humanity, we have to go for revision

    The questions bounce back and we often ask questions and seldom answer others.
    The seed of thought has sprouted well and it`s now up to the petals to bloom out Aftab.
    Hoping to read you ahead after a few concerted efforts on editing are made every time by you.. (Report) Reply

    Days are still bright and our Earth, though not as beautiful as before is still beautiful; but to our jaundiced eye everything looks yellow. So the problem lies with our perception of things! A good philosophical poem! ! (Report) Reply
