  • Reuben Matthew (11/20/2006 4:32:00 AM)

    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.

Best Poem of asma bahrainwala

A Sudden Storm

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

A strange silence engulfs.

A sudden chill creeps in;
The wind begins to blow
Gently-wildly-ferociously,
Forming a dense screen of dust.

The wind gains momentum.

It sucks the dry leaves
Up towards the sky,
A greedy funnel forms;
The trees sashay to the rhythm.

The wind begins to howl.

A roaring thunder roars,
Alarms the mighty earth,
Rips it off its grave silence,
And shoves it into utter chaos.
...

Read the full of A Sudden Storm

I Am Built That Way

I am built that way—
No alterations can be made.

Everyone says—
You gotta be thick-skinned,
You gotta be manipulative,
You gotta be artful.

But to be all of these—
