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 ...
Flowers In The Snow
In the dead of night when silence reigns
Among dancing flames his kind face smiles
Lily white beard circling chin, eyes so deep
Love’s warmth defies iciness of death
That chills the soul, frozen breaths, eyelids
Closely shut, still body bears no sign of life!
Blossoms of memories rise from the snow
Bright blue, purple crocuses pushing through
