Enter The Flame - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

Eulogy of the Queen's birth
Champaign was water in Pims

Misled to the dust
Time overseeing in retrospect
Chameleon knows art of color

Sans everything that matters
Prophets could advise
The poor people

Sage the lesson of faith
And humanity
And soul

The flame in the Irises
Took me to the smoke in purple
Dispossessed any
Many before me

Do not take away my name
I will sell it for a living

    ‘…Do not take away my name/I will sell it for a living’


    Poet’s name inscribed in heart any detergent/eraser will be of no avail.

    Sir we poet’s are seller/ buyer [reader] and sailor of emotion [pure] and in reader’s mind already you’re vividly present [me too very much].

    Thanks for sharing.
