Language Does Not Work - Poem by Sayeed Abubakar

Language does not work
when two hearts speak.
When two souls talk,
language becomes dumb.

Language becomes then
stars of the sky,
waves of the sea
and leaves of trees.

This night we need not talk,
let us listen to the dumb words
of our two united sad souls
sighing, laughing and weeping in pleasure.

Topic(s) of this poem: love and life

    Language becomes then
    stars of the sky
    waves of the sea
    and leaves of tree- -Marvelous depiction of feeling that connects heart s in ethereal way.A baby after birth knows no language but feels his mother.It is the universal language of love beyond any particular language, written in the star, sea-wave and green leaves, sublime and supreme.
