A Jelly-Fish On The Beach - Poem by Naveed Khalid

Methinks not of love by fair means foul,
not least for folly's sake to show thy pride,
that through e'ery skipped beat so porous as the eyes
of unnerved blood in vein, half-so-ill a dis-tempered brain,
that half-baked masonry's night can e'er illumine,
a broccoli, beneath the bed of crimson joy,
cowslip her parted hair upon the mundane shell
hath rent at midnight lease with pen-pricked angels:
this world of fealty's Apollo at my door in the late evening
e'ery flower upon a barren heath to my shipwrecked dreams
away from heaven's most high deserts that shows not half thy part,
bereft of e'ery departed look beyond the sunrise,
of chiseled bones such darling insights from nowhere arise, arise
against many a lost memory to another's plight,
our little john upon the sand dunes,
his feet half-sunk in stony ripples beside the oak,
besmeared with time seeds that grow to eternal bliss;
of glorious days her cherubim Wing under the Archangel's brow,
awakes but a wonder in thine holy eyen: sweet maid,
ere I write thee some such snowflakes in winter cold,
of snow-capped myrtle at Minerva's golden bow.
