Best Poem of Noshi Gilani

The Wind, Too, Can Change Direction

Do you know?
The wind, too, can change direction
The birds might leave their nests at dawn
And forget to find their way back
Sometimes in spring the tree branches out
Before autumn the leaves separate
Like the paths my life takes
Blown this way and that like dust
The strange smile taking shape on your lips
Says 'So, what's new?'
Of everything in the story, you are new
Do you know?
But how could you know this?
Your encampment of love and faith
Could blow away like dust
The wind, too, can change direction.

[Translated by Nukhbah Langah and ...

A Change Of Season

A change of season
Exposes something
Hidden in her fear:
A way across that island
Lit by the pain in her eyes
