A Forsaken Text Poem by Ahmad Shiddiqi

A Forsaken Text

Rating: 2.9

O lamb of gleaming richness!
listen to firefly’s happiness
it moves the audience
to reject unbalance

O mentor of enchanting kindness!
sense dialog of waves
it lure stoned heart
to rejuvenate

O gardener of exciting tenderness!
touch bleakest of haunted crows
it surprise the sunrise
to dive in a rush

O shepherd of charming fertileness!
look upon leaves of grass
it pull the joyful out
from scarf throat

O guard of amazing vigorousness!
search for truest lightness
it absorb aura of secure
and give pleasure

(dedicated to a great poet at poemhunter, Elaine Oxamendi Vicet)

loved the flow of the poem; it was in and out with rhyming but made it fun to read. also, love the last stanza. don't really know what more to add since i liked everything about the poem and can't really comment on every thing that was there. your style of writing once again amazes me. loved it lots. -Every rose starts out as an ash-Ashes 2 Roses :)

my dear Ahmed your writing to me is very lyrical, but not being religious can not appreciate its full value. (By the way I can't pick up any of your messages.)
