A Twilight Adieu

Poem By Seemeen Khan Yousufzai

Across the lake,
In the sea of sands
A soothing lazy breeze
Plays with a sandy-hued lock of hair
That has an independent spirit of its own.

Away from the rest of its clan
It dances wildly
Like a sensual gypsy dancer
Its wild freedom
Obstructing the line of vision
Of the intense deep eyes,
That encompasses a lost world within its realm.

Scrutinising the message of nature
Encoded in the ambience
Under the canopy of the firmament
The amber-gold-rayed brown eyes breathe in
The change in the sky as twilight approaches.

And the sun winks at the eyes
Through the clouds
As a final goodbye for the day
And the eyes crinkle at the corners
Lighting up as the sun lights up the sky,
Thus, the silent watchers
Bid each other a sweet adieu.

Ode To The Wild Blue Rose

While your red mate
Steals the rosy show,
Dancing in its glory
Of evoking love

Into The Abyss

There are deep abysses
In my mind.
Each abyss filled with
A whirlpool of thoughts, memories and senses;

Repainting With Colours Of Eunoia

Just pause this moment,
Just pause this scene,
Rewind and I shall
Add to it
