Naseer Ahmed Nasir
Haikus (The Moon)
The moon stared hiding itself,
The night was sitting
Nude in the balcony
Every phalanx was lighted,
In her closed fists
Was it the moon or the firefly?
The night all bared,
And from behind the curtains
Of, the coconut trees, the moon peeping.
The milky heat of the moon,
The frozen sky melts
Despair poured, drop-by-drop.
On the coastal rocks,
Hanging its head, the moon
Sits, before committing suicide.
The decay of the night,
In the shades of the places of worship
The moon too feels exhausted.
(1985, Translated from Urdu into English by Dr. M.Q. Khan, India)
