Little Ocean - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan
Little ocean, sparkle sparkle,
Lonely drop, wherefrom sprinkle,
Away, far and distant, whom for?
Indifferent garnet, ruby esquired.
Your fish swim where, where goes
The sweet tongued bird. Green leaf,
You, in shyness turn crimson,
Yellow smile, O aged bark of old tree.
Little ocean, of all your splendor,
Little talk, O love, the pilgrim's ashore,
Like Buddha leave, or like dew suspend
Ultimate is to find a path. To whom!
Her teeth shine like sun-beams,
O spread is she, red rose on sheet,
Travel, you marvel, in her eyes
Songs? Until her tongue speak,
Red of lip is wine of the yore, forehead like,
Snow clad hill, cheek is beaten by autumn wind.
