Adnan Shafi Poems
O, father! Thou hast taught me, The beginning of life, The ending of life, Thou hast taught me,
Intoxicated eyes I saw of yours have magicked me into a cuckoo man,
The preeminence of thy grimace surgeons
Psithurism, oh! unruly psithurism, The fowls are not going to bear you,
Occasionally my lips sealed, My tongue clamped Occasionally, my hands Can't reach the impression
The moon illumines thy eyes,
Today the sun Has offered us
Play Your Notes
Play your notes on My surface with electric Fingertips Mesmerized by the chords of your
O, love! then there are fusses O, love! How perfect is thy lyrics,
I still keep the faith Deep down in my Heart, I said, I am okay
All I can explain All I can perform Is.......... murmur flimsily
You And Me
Mislaid in a jinxed while, Intertwined with lost rem-
After The Wound
My dear After he appears, My father spun his tail one January afternoon
Basil seeds black in our kitchen,
Their close aura is the aura of mellowing,
And my mother, entering the room softly,
Takes a seat at the table, takes up the task
Of expunging the extra dust away,
Even half ripened ones are sundered gingerly.
