Haikus (The Women)


The green paddy fields,
In the hearts of eves
Are divine secrets.

********

In the fields of saffron,
The laboring women
How pale and consumptive look.

********

Why does the decaying belle
Bring a garland
Needling fresh flowers?

********

In the dreadful jungle of the night,
A frail, thin line of the light
Or smiles of jet black women.

********

On the sand of the shore,
Basking in the sun
There are dreamy and drowsy belles.


(1986, Translated from Urdu into English by Dr.M.Q. Khan, India)

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
