In Flood Seasons - Poem by Rahman Henry

The Rainy season is but a season of flood in our country.

Rivers come to meet us at our households!
There is water water everywhere
We walk through seasonal rivers
Indeed, Ours is a watery lands

In Flood seasons, we even sleep on water
Recollecting my mom's advice, I wonder
When alive she used to tell us: 'There is a Prophet
Under water, Khwaja Khizar. Never pass water in water! '

I simply wonder:
How a man can live under water for thousands of year!

Topic(s) of this poem: memory, season, water, wondering
