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)
