Afzal Shauq

A Common Concept: Katherine Macdonald

I am grateful to your idiom,
the parlance towards my being.
I am thankful that I found a friend,
who veraciously believes in me.

Two minds of the creative,
concertedly understand,
that we share a common concept,
and from that, a common bond.

I am grateful to your ideals,
and how they interact with mine.
I am forever indebted to your critiques,
because I am inspired, by what you write.
