Inner Encouragement 01 - Poem by Ahmad Shiddiqi

here in the garden that melancholy and shiny, they hope
radiate as a diamond or a rainbow of spring
calm like a red orange jasmine
meadow and butterfly rocking through your voice

in a green silk, a soft wavy lake
the breeze in this narrow road is the spirit
it will grow in depth of the sacred story
this morning the sun will decorate the day

here at home they were safe from the pain
sealed in their hearts, a million love jump
here I can inhale fragrant dream freely
and in my hands love lies asleep
