    Naheed is our country's best poet. She wrote very good books. I know her since more than 40 years from Lahore. While she was living in Krishan Nagar. She is our family friend. Wish you happy and blessed Ramazan.

    If possible, please send me miss call from Lahore.

The Grass Is Really Like Me

The grass is also like me
it has to unfurl underfoot to fulfil itself
but what does its wetness manifest:
a scorching sense of shame
or the heat of emotion?

The grass is also like me
As soon as it can raise its head
the lawnmower
obsessed with flattening it into velvet,
mows it down again.
How you strive and endeavour
to level woman down too!
But neither the earth's nor woman's
desire to manifest life dies.
Take my advice: the idea of making a footpath was a good one.

Those who cannot bear the scorching defeat of their courage
are grafted...
