Naveed Akram

(15 December 1973 / London, England)

Like A Pyramid


She was exactly employed,
LIke a pyramid of the day,
Sent by a violent irruption,
Overtaken by gales of speed.
She ran like a commander,
Telling the ready instants forcibly,
Chance was a greatest artificer.
An event was the gardener,
Nurturing the few who owned this event.

The vast sea of letters arrived,
In spite of a driving rain,
Though gallops, though beautiful queens
Uprose through the trees on the horizon.
Upon the steps made,
Driving rains struck at the messenger.
She was a postwoman of a kindness,
A message of the order,
A hastener of what is no way.

I employed her from her questions,
Arranging the house as soon as entering it,
Seeing and awaiting for instructions,
In spite of the revealing rain.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
