Abandoned Courtyard Poem by Nosheen Irfan

Abandoned Courtyard

Rating: 5.0

Half-shaded in the afternoon
The marbled floor smudged
By the acacia shadow
Awaits the summer breeze
Slowly winding through the twigs
Swishing the dead yellow leaves
Prostrate on the floor
Silence sweeps the yard
With force of a hurricane
Trees answer in monosyllables
As no footsteps cross the threshold
Of ego between the gate
And the window.
