How Do I Take You! - Poem by Shahzia Batool
How do i take you?
Apollo's early laurel bough,
at the dawn of creativity!
What i might not do...
if the harsh blows of rough winds
with their sullen severity do try
to nullify you...!
What i might not wish...
when as tender buds your phrases bloom
and showers of praises come down
as a divine downpour
to vivify you...!
I leave my house-wife's cares,
and all professional clap-trap
at the feel of the sound
when sitting on the edge of the river of Fancy
you play your guitar
and fill the aura with your florid melodies
waves upon waves come n drench your feet
and you keep on pouring forth your flowing soul...
at such moment
i just wish all the world to be all ears
to your rich music
to satisfy you...!
Whenever you long for peace n rest
may springs come and calm you,
morning sunrays warm you
stars come down and play with you
joys do enter tip-toe in your world...
do take my wish as it's for you...
How do i take you!
like a maiden dropp of pleasant rain
in the age-old barren desert of my life...!
you are my personal Kashmir...
i really wish to wage war with India
to occupy you...!
