As Love Carries... - Poem by Ahmad Shiddiqi

I carry within shells
Indescribable feelings
Amidst luscious dreams
I carry unraveling memories

I carry a bunch of ripened hopes
Just before dawn's awakening
I carry lots of fiery kisses
My will is transfiguring

As black hawks fly vigorously
As white swans swim beautifully
I carry your soul inside my lenience
I carry your spirit inside my kindness

As golden deer runs to sovereignty hills
As silken buffalo roams on flourishing parks
I carry your love inside my undisputed tolerance
I carry your heart inside my undoubted indulgence

Vivacious and challenging harmonies
Widen my keen desire for miracle favors
As sensuous as Bartok's Bluebeard Castle
As mysterious as Scriabin's Vers La Flame

Amorous and vibrating melodies
As smooth as Handel's Ombra Mai Fu
As gentle as Puccini's Che Gelida Manina
Deepen my unrequited love for a divine princess

(dedicated to a great poet at poemhunter, Amy)

    It is beautiful your, or of your hero, love for the saint princess. With this reciprocity, it differently is. Today doesn't love and tomorrow - who does it know? I like your poem, it is sincere and beautiful, very well written.10 v. -I am greeting :) Maria Barbara Korynt (Report)Reply

    There are only two words that I can say in reference to this piece. WELL SAID.
    I just don't know how else to characterize it. It had both beauty and a flavored
    charm that is worthy of all true loves. Yes, WELL SAID.

    Divine princess... this is a classic end. The poem is a good expression of your heart. Easily readable. But what is 'undisputed tolerance'. It means that there is 'disputaed tolerance' also. Tolerance itself means that we are tolerating something which we actually don't like. We needn't tolerate anything that we love or like. See the difference. (Report)Reply
