I Cannot Realize - Poem by Sayeed Abubakar

I can realize buds, flowers
and their blooming in the gardens of earth;
only I cannot realize their falling down from trees.

I can realize clouds, rain
and the sweet soft sound of their fall;
only I cannot realize thunder.

Rivers, fields, oceans, forests,
hills and mountains—
I can realize them all;
only I cannot realize deserts.

I can realize fishes, sharks, deer
and the bright striped tigers;
only I cannot realize a shark beside a fish
and a tiger beside a deer.

I can realize life
and many turns of life I can realize very clearly;
only I cannot realize the ice-cold death any way.
