Tanu: My Sister

Poem By Dr. Nikhat Bano

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.

You're a monk of your cloister
contemplating with your lilies;
These simpletons are glorified
by your pristine presence and your smiles.

Every spring, news of its first bloom
she shares with people, she loves;
Every time overpowered by ecstasy
when she counts their blooms.

Love you for the simplicity you've,
adore you, as you've many folds;
May the stardust rain over your lilies!
Paint them all from peach to gold!

You're an oasis in the desert of life,
your aura has gilded your lilies;
You've given them reasons to smile
without you, they'd have been just lilies.

They're as thrilling as their fragrance,
and you're a sober queen of your mansion;
These peachy pages are from your almanac.
May your reign lasts, forever in your Sahn!

Pleased I read your notes of Tanu and her disability. The joy a garden can bring is beautiful with the freshness of nature. I also like the idea of framing your words for Tanu. A wonderful poem.

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.

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
