Irfanulla Shariff Poems
A Tribute To The Illuminated Woman Of Wo...
Our humble tribute to you The illuminated woman Of Word War II Oh! The courageous Miss Noor Inayat Khan
Sanctuaries Of Love
Our hearts have strings like guitars Once passionately tuned With melodious notes Beautiful harmonies
Tiny shiny white Crystals tumble from the sky Icy diamonds from heaven Swirl around the trees
The Valley Of Butterflies
At the valley Of butterflies In Rhodes, Greece I encountered
Bright red And beautiful A delicious fruit From heaven
My Spring Poem
Welcome to spring! Season of love and liveliness Occasion of novel beginnings And opportunities
The Sweetest Fragrance
The sweetest fragrance What is it Where is it It is nothing
Oh! America we salute you We are your shining stars Boundless love flow among us Fragrance of your soil
Let us reach out and make connection With spontaneous everlasting affection Wake up and say it We care! We care!
Am I ever going to sing today? This whispering voice of my throat As if there is an ocean locked in a boat How it could be ever possible
Candles Gazing In Tranquillity
Oh! Those candles are gazing in tranquillity This is the moment of true geniality I was told by that charming sparkling light Generosity of this ignited excited night
The rain splashes and thunder Watching through the window, I wonder Is this Mother Nature's whirling dance? Or just a heavenly romance
Let us reach out and make connection
With spontaneous everlasting affection
Wake up and say it
We care! We care!
Then do it
Starting up! Starting up!
A gentle flow with glow
In the right direction
Don’t just stop it
