Yasmeen Khan Poems
The Hills Are Alive!
Swooping on gradients and hairpin bends
When the sun sinks and softly descends
At a mellow pace in Heaven's wide arch
A thousand pines in the clouds' arms
Swing and sway in welcome mists,
On glorious crests bend and twist.
Winds sing sweetly, airs are benign
And the city looks dreamy and shines
Like a starry plane far beneath me
As I look down the scary lee.
Soaring upwards in the mellow blush of day
A spot sparkles in the foggy dark and stays
Glowing on the lush peaks illumining grays.
Savory aromas float on the evening breeze
With melodies ...
Who Sings That Song?
In the wee hours of dawn,
A melodic song alarm
Sweetly guides and leads me on
With a strange and sweet charm
The mysterious sound veers
And spiraling downwards
Trails around me far and near
Rendering peace inwards
