Bird's Flight

Poem By Naveed Akram

Once you were parallel
To a bird’s flighted path:
I don't know the shuffle 
Of wings, or strapping of greed,
For shrinking minds pulsed
The eyes, as swooping
Became your joys - rejoice!

Whisking your way
through the air, more
accustomed  to this phenomenon
than the birds of martyrdom,
You enjoy a brief game of flight
and then sit in a nest of twigs.

For Every Storm

For every storm there is a room
And find the palace now,
From deserts are a tomb and gloom,
Where clothes must just allow.

Huge Heart

My heart and soul seeks for splendor,
The beautiful ones try their poetry and words
For riches to come in the Hereafter.
I see unity as a bridge, a sign will tell,

“ghosts Are For The Telling”

Ghosts are for the telling,
We call them experts and impressive,
As more of them appear from the woods.

A Book

A volume speaks of divine actions and rigorous mathematics
Of the soul as a light of heaven.
A book reads of writing and matter of energy, of work
And the studies binding us in flames and ruination, of pleasure.


A sand is a past second,
Uttered by infinite pleasures,
Hatred comes from it,
Leisure is obtained,

Our Eyes And Ears

Yet we revise our papers for the pleasure
Of a single marriage, the best secret.
Pleasant places and airspaces shall head
The hair of a sudden astonishing thing.
