Abdul Wahab

Who Says The World Is Vast?

Who says the world is vast?
As I can see the arch-
Not far long it creates the dome.
When I approach to it,
It goes far away upon.
Then how does an artist draw the horizon?

I apprehend the universe is vast-
As I can not see the fence.
Then how does an astronomer photograph it,
And sticks these on the pages of books?
And is not the perspective concept of geometry applied to them?

If all these are imagination and assumption-
Then I am a poet full of imagination-
Far above of them to think
With a colourful pen and ink.

    Indeed you are a poet full of imagination, with your colorful pen and ink - painting, incredibly, things that others cannot see. And may you continue to put that colorful pen and ink to good use. Thank you, Abdul, for your warm invitation. Blessings. (Report) Reply

    I guess the world used to be vast but with technology news travels in seconds and we are in touch with nothing to hinder. The poet certainl has a different viewpoint than society usually does and your view reflects this. I like what you have said and hope you continue your unique way of looking at things Abdul.

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
