*prayers - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

What prayers thou asketh
Prayers I do not say but the beloved
In my heart without whispers
Remember I will
When in love what style and genre
Say what the beloved asketh
Who knows when love’s journey
In mist shall we loose
The memories of today’s vignette
For my soul hilarious

The earth from a long sleep
With heavy rains from womb of nature
Like waters gushing on birth of life
The sun god for the sustenance
Two women saying psalms to dead
Died yesterday for the first night
The small boy in ritual of life
With washed face glowing to take
Life shall take toll before the psalms
Read to him when in depth of earth

Why stop me from love’s sweet agonies
Anything better thou hast for intoxication
Wine O Saki, tonight is without inebriation
Make the goblet dance for senses to enliven
The beloved with woven motifs on tapestry
Alas my love as yet is still a child
Learning the ways of love’s coquetry
