Inside Domes Poem by Naseer Ahmed Nasir

Inside Domes

Rating: 4.9

Desires are happy lyrics
Written on walls of sorrowful crying.
Paths are dreams
Of good days to come
But stay detached from destinations.
Lines are imprisoned
In circles.

So, keep walking on
Water is the end-all
Of journey in the desert.

Go, if you must
Following mirages
But carry oceans in your eyes.
Pass, if you must
In the forest of glass-encrusted silence
But keep stones of sound with you.
Live, if you must
Inside domes
But keep a door open!

(Translated by Satyapal Anand)

Beautifully positive in spite of the inner tears. I like your resounding last line. The poet who connects with his readers is a poet who is worthy of the name. Kind regards, Sandra

This is great. I specifically like the last verse: Live if you must. Inside domes but keep a door open.
