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.
