asma bahrainwala Poems

1.
Desire

I am a well.
Confined by a wall;
Restricted by a boundary;
Stagnated by it all.
...

2.
A Sudden Storm

The blinding light
Of the brightest ever sun
Suddenly shrouded
By a thick pall of impenetrable darkness.
...

3.
*** Soulful Ruminations

Emotions, images, ideas
Touch my mind
Like a plectrum touching
The strings of a lyre.
...

4.
** (My First Attempt At Satire)

A mighty nincompoop
The presiding deity seated on
The canonical pedestal
Sways his scepter
...

5.
Winds Of Change

A solitary stunted bud
In a barren garden
Of repressed desires
Parched to the core

Dear Asma, You are a fantastic poet. You have a natural flair for words and it reflects in your poetry. Your poems dont read like they are laboriously constructed. Your ideas dont appear contrived. Your thoughts, and thereby your poems, flow smoothly. The simplicity and (yet) the density are the most striking features about your poetry. One can either read and just enjoy your poems or one can brood over it and derive something out of it. Keep up the good work, Asma. Best Wishes, Reuben.
