Best Poem of Ahamad Ilyaas Vilayathullah

I Beckon You, My Friend

I beckon you, my friend,
To open your eyes,
And see everything around,
The diverse everything,
The sky, the mountains.
The oceans, the rivers, the streams,
Your image in the mirror,
And your shadow beside you,
A sunny afternoon.

I beckon you, my friend,
To prick your ears,
And hear all the sounds
That reach your ears
From all around,
The wind, the thunder,
The songbirds, the cascade,
The breeze, the little drops of rain,
That rattle on the rooftop.

Do all these happen
With none beyond
To plan and command?
And...

My Poetics

I'm not a poet,
In the conventional sense of the term.

I'm not a poet,
If poets are those
Who foolishly and thoughtlessly
Wander in the valleys
Of all kinds.
