Let's See The Sun Descending! - Poem by Shahzia Batool

Come with me
on the edge of life!
Come let's do something new and think,
and unfurl the brave new world;

hand over ourselves to odd and clumsy thought-strain
then let's see what happens? and where? and how?
where does come the night-fall from?
let's go and see!

let's turn the side of the globe of the moon...
let's solve the mystery of the rainbow palette,
on skies and sands alike, , ,
that keeps us in all amazement!

where is the dale of deep sleep you know?
where dwell the slumbers sweet?
where do the dreams of joys come from?
let's go and touch those abstract dreams...
let's go and see the moonlit night
covering tall trees

let's go and see the skies in spring
let's go and see the sun descending
from the other side of the world!
come with me!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Ghair mumkin nhi duniya mein koi kaam Batool

    Life is like this exactly. We never know where we will be in the next minute. Life is a dream. If you dream of beauty, harmony, kindness, you get it. Just dream on lovely places and you will find the way to get there. (Report) Reply

    This poem stands like an invitation letter that has no boundaries, but promising horizons of hopes, love and adventure.if people under different skies can be brought under one lovelit umbrella, it would be the solution for all wars arisen out of caste n religion.more properly saying: god created human, human made religions and finally humans along with religion started wars.

    daring amazing and absolutely demonic in feral love....
    Shakespearean old world charm......
    what metaphor.....the lines seem to just rise up on their own.... dance in trance...alive throbbing vivacious.
    a celebration of love..... from cupid his choice arrow

    congrats dear poet.
    you have done a marvel here

    There is one bengali song - at the dusk the tired birds are returning to their nests as if they have forgotten their path. the descending sun is so beautiful that can be imagined like the angel coming down on earth. (Report) Reply
