Our Lost Pal

Poem By Dr. Nikhat Bano

I just saw a word 'Humanity'
written somewhere here,
O Yes! On a page of our mortal book;
Somewhere right here!

And then it vanished from the sight,
don't know where?
Might have disappeared
somewhere into the thin air.

Still recall that good book of ours,
O God! Still recall those letters of that
heaviest, mightiest word;
How on earth I lost that word!

It was a byword for peace,
a second word for a lifeline called
universal brotherhood;
It also meant compassion.

O World! Will you help me
to find that lost vital piece of man?
It was a jewel once worn by the wise.
Must've met a fatal end, I guess.

Alas! Must've been eliminated
and buried in cold blood,
on the orders of the worldling.
Our poor pal was last seen with the virtue.

A Message

The rays have brought your message
Piercing through my closed window
I can read a golden hued line
'I'll be yours, all my life'

Waiting To See A Daybreak

Standing alone at one end of the street
Is nerve wrecking;
Staring from nowhere to nothingness
Chills my spine.

Tanu: My Sister

A lily truth herself, a soul so pure,
who gets amused just by the sight,
of humble lilies of her courtyard;
Swaying during day, smelling during night.

A Glance Says All

Glowing as a lamp I saw a lone onlooker,
adorned with the flares of sun - one Gloria;
Unleashing a blaze of beauty around her,
lighted my heart's patio with her wine aura.

My Musings

You listen to all my whisperings,
you know what lies in my heart;
Your gazes follow my breaths,
only you can foretell my untold parts.

Pieces Of Life

Holding pieces of my jigsaw puzzle
I'm wandering from earth to heaven
Searching places for my oddities
Putting them at their right places
