Syed Ahmed Shah Poems
Holes are everywhere... Holes in the heart Black holes in space Manholes in sidewalks
Three Short Poems About Sadness
Mother would never let me out of sight If I tried to run away She would pull back the umbilical cord with a jerk
Schizophrenia By Deepa Thakuria (Transla...
When the diseased mind Talks to the wind Torn leaves Turn into swinging shadows.
It is fundamental, honey
Why write about something That exists by default Absolute Time Absolute Space
Translation of an Assamese poem by Nalin...
Who art thou O Angel of Spring, spreading thy fiery wings Carrying the nectar of life over a razor thin bridge You have shown how a divine gust of wind can flatten and shape the green We understand the language of your sacred text of love
Dust on a windy road
Dust on a windy road Masks on faces A Child behind the curtain We try to run away
Frozen to my bones As the mercury dives But my neurons, born hot, Never tire of firing
The day lay scattered on the cold marble floor Like colorful beads escaping From a torn rosary string...
Magical Moon (Translated from a song wri...
The silvery shroud of the magical moon The mysterious shadows of the pine leaves The soft murmuring of the little stream Is it where we shall meet?
