Abdul Wahab


birth of a poem


All three of the following
Gave me in same tone same answer
When I asked them to give me a poem.
At First I went to a river,
He said he would
But I would have to flow like his stream
And the wind would too
But with a condition
If I could blow like him
Being disappointed I tuned
And went to the cloud
He agreed to give me but before
Taking the poem
I would have to pour down as rain
I am a human being
How I could do all those
Being frustrated I cried a lot
Tears rolled down emotions went high
Out of that pain I gave birth this poem

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
