Good Night Nature

Let the nature remain sleepy,
when it awakes it eats the existing galaxies
and remains pregnant for millions of years,
no guarantee when it delivers the new one,
what will be the shape of our insignificant solar system,
with or without this lovely earth.
Even if an earth is here,
or somewhere.
shall there be a couple,
a male and a female,
having attractions of opposite sex
and passion of love,
that ends in colourful fine arts
fictions and poetry.
Rivalries and duels, too,
quarrels for love,
and love after quarrels.
Or a bisexual over intelligent man
self-satisfied and self-content.
If so I withdraw my indent,
to be created once again,
I want a pain and a stain,
that I get in love of a fair sex,
I don't want a life that never ends,
a tasteless fruit that is not forbidden,
evolved from a colourless and odourless flower,
sprung on a tree that has no leaves,
to manufacture its food for its hunger.
But I doubt nature is planning an universe
that will have no hunger,
no hunger no joys of a food after struggles.
So I think nature has done what I needed,
and now I wish an endless sleepy state to the nature.
Sweet dreams, sweet heart!
Good Night Nature.

شب بَخَیْر قدرت
قدرت کو خوابیدہ رہنے دو،
اسکی انگڑائی کہکشاؤں کو کھا جائے گی
اور یہ لاکھوں کروڑون سال تک حاملہ رہے گی
اس کے پاس کوئی ضمانت نہیں ہے
کب اور کیسے یہ نئی تخلیق کرے گی
اور اک نقتہ سے بھی کمتر نظام شمسی کی
کیا شکل و صورت ہو گی
اس میں یہ پیاری زمین ہو گی بھی
یا نہیں ہو گی.
اگر یہ ھوگی یہاں
یا کہیں اور
کیا اس میں جوڑیاں ھوں گی
یا دوہری جنس رکھنے والا ایک بالاتر انسان
اپنے آپ میں مگن خود سے مطمئن
اگرایسا ہے تو میری دوبارہ پیدا ہونے کی درخواست
مجھے لوٹا دو.
مجھے درد محبت چاہئے
مجھے داغ ندامت چاہئے
یہ تو مجھے جنس مخالف کی محبت میں ملتا ہے.
مجھے لافانی زندگی نہیں چاہئے
اک ایسا پھل جو ممنوعہ نہ ہو!
اک ایسے پھول كے شکم سے نکلا ہوا
جس میں رنگ و بو نہ ہو
اک ایسے درخت پر اگا ہوا
جس یں شاخیں اور پتیاں نہ ہوں
پتیاں جو غذا تیار کرتی ہیں
بھوک کو بہلانے كے لیے.
لیکن مجھے شک ہے
قدرت ایک منصوبہ بنا رہی ہے
اک ایسی كائنات کی تخلیق کا
جس میں بھوک نہیں ہو گی
اور اگر بھوک نہیں ہو گی
تو بھوک کو مٹانے والا جوش
اور سعی بھی نہیں ہو گی.
میں سمجھتا ہوں
قدرت نے جو کچھ کر دیا
وہ کافی ہے.
میری نیک تمنائیں
اِس نیم خوابییدہ قدرت كے لیے
حَسِین خواب،
ہمیشہ خوابیدہ رہیں
یہ تیری نییم باز آنکھیں.
میٹھے میٹھے خواب میری محبوبہ
شب بَخَیْر قدرت!

    Your most important lines, the key for this beautiful poem:

    But I doubt nature is planning an universe
    that will have no hunger,
    no hunger no joys of a food after struggles.
    So I think nature has done what I needed,
    and now I wish an endless sleepy state to the nature.
    Sweet dreams, sweet heart!

    Heartiest congratulations on your achievement of this honor- your poem being selected as the 'Member Poem of the Day'! An honor well deserved.
    'quarrels for love,
    and love after quarrels' - these are human frailties but we live happily with these.

    Some of the images that the poem creates reminds me of the latter part of H G Well's classic 'The Time Machine' where the man has reached a state where there are no problems left to be solved or no changes and challenges taking place in life. Thanks a lot.

    Great. Venturing the deepest cores of the universe and the readers. Nature has given us beautiful abode to live and a heart to spread love but we are stuck to hatred and lesser things. Such a great comment striking the cords of soul. And Spacially that of the Urdu one. Well deserved poem. Congratulations Dear Akhtar Sir. Yes I should say! ! ! شب بخیر قدرت
    And to human beings- خاموش باشید

    What nature has abundantly in store is beyond prediction. After " an endless sleep" she may be waking up with a novelty that may be dear to you Akhtarji and for us too...10

    Congratulations Akhtarji. So nice to read your wonderful poem. As far as I can see it is Us who will be bidding goodbye to Nature while she keeps on creating new galaxies. Of course with faith in rebirth I will be happy to be born again....if nothing else but to read poetry and polish my own skills.

    Nature is ever a pregnant mother and Mother Nature beholds trillions of galaxies in her frame in womb. Our Earth is part of Great-Great Nature Mother and we call Earth as also Nature Mother. Sweet dreams are always associated with nature. This is very beautiful and you have written one wonderful poem. I congratulate you for your grand success. This great poem is very beautiful and a nice member poem of the day chosen.
