Treasure Island

saadat tahir

(21011965 / Islamabad-Pakistan)

Unguarded word......think before u speak!


Unguarded word, befriended bird.
Weighted fell by thrice or third.
Dusty grind, millers churn.
Pummel ears, murmurs burn.

Mongered word off china town,
bamboos morph to fretting frown.
Snared enmeshed, wasted sage,
bowl of death at generous age.

Placid morns to sullied days,
rancid slicks on sandy bays.
Bubbly sprays dash and bounce,
buffet sighs in crannies trounce.

Tongues to airs, wings have lent.
Hath words to many, a gallows sent.
Deadened eyes to rainbows womb,
spured fear to tear to life entomb.

Strongest will and hardy soul.
Char and writhe on carmine coal.
Words said, unsaid, worlds apart.
Volley's sent, will raze ramparts

    Dear Saadat, there is a hidden rhyme zone and a dictionary inside your head and heart wherefrom spring forth perfectly strung colourful garlands of words.. I like the title which teaches the effectiveness of the unguarded word by the following poem...you are a master..I salute....thanks for your comment too (Report) Reply

    Unguarded word...agree with you..though I should be true I often speak before I think..but I work on it.. :) your way with words always amazes me and makes me recite your poems immediately to listen how they sound in air, and to feel the power of sounds on an emotional level..and then to read it some times to get more into an idea..always deep and encouraging..thanks for sharing, Saadat.

    Sadaat you really have a way with words- charming indeed, i am sure in speech as well as in writing. you come out with most unusual images, and there is always a stroke of your humour in your poems. whenever i read your poems, i have to read them aloud, becuase listening enhances the pleasure.

    weell to use a cliche unmindful speech hurts more than a wound by an arrow.

    mindfulness in speech is the basis of healthy relationships and dialogue.

    A very nice theme put in a rhythmic rhymy way
    Of words uttered when we succumb to sway
    Let all unkind words die inside
    Never to another person deride (Report) Reply

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:

Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
