Waiting To See A Daybreak

Poem By Dr. Nikhat Bano

Standing alone at one end of the street
Is nerve wrecking;
Staring from nowhere to nothingness
Chills my spine.
It seems the sky and the earth has slept
Together with the lanes;
Those far fetched dreams have evaded me
Even slept are my destinations.
Time surrenders, day surrenders,
Night surrenders;
I stare nonchalantly at the burning lights
Of the city streets wanderers.
When the nemesis decides to intervene
Cosmos surrenders;
And when the fortune plays its flute
The last is the front runner.



I'll keep wandering on the streets
With my head held high;
To see every dark cloud with a silver lining
And a rising sun after this night.

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'

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
