Dad Planted A Ranunculus

Poem By Sameer Ahmed

Planted weeks ago
At the onset of spring
The seasonal sapling
Ranunculus
Blossomed a new minimo
That greeted the fragrant wind
Whispered in a flow
Usually red, pink, aquatic,
Orange and yellow
But it was white
Like corrugated ball of snow
And surprisingly changed
It's hue to mauve or so
As it grew slow and slow
With this unique
Feature and beauty
It gave a warm glow
The friendly breeze,
Birds, butterflies, bees
Dad and co
Together they looked
Enchanting and sociable
And praised it's
Colorful transformation
And amused the viewers
By putting up a good show.

An Ocean Within (A Poem For My Father, Poet Naseer Ahmed Nasir)

Flourishing on
Natural contours of land,
Variegating with rainbows,
A continuous river

Wake Up!

Wake up!
From your unyielding prestige
That made you abortive
And you turned into a nefarious sculpt.

If I Cry........

If I cry
Don't stop me
Let the rain of tears fall on ground
And moisten the soil

A Splash Of Joyful Memories

Sun beams
Reflect through
Cotton wool like remnants
Of departing clouds

First Beautiful Rain

I could see from the window
Light losing it's consciousness
With fading sunshine.
The green cheering rhythmically

From The Socket Of An Eye

A magic ball
Concealed in the orbit
Though appears small
Spreads its sight
