Soulful Eyes - Poem by Safi Hyder

Leave aside the fairy tales of the bygone times
And the gardens hung in the heavenly Paradise
As nothing more beautiful than to be alive
And see the wonders with the soulful eyes

Ever read the teething smile of the sunflower?
With each of its fibers raised in full order
Or sensed the hidden grinning of the tulip
Enticing the bride to keep her blush aside

Ever seen the Moon playing hide and seek?
Making the clouds feel elated for a while
Or the stars competing on a moonless night
to the envy of the owl perched on a tree by the beach side

Ever felt the flowing tears of the morning dew?
Quietly cleaning all of the sinned rues
Before succumbing to the Sun's splendor
Without a tint of remorse or any tremble

Ever discerned the laughter of the gusty winds
Gathering in a group to form a tropical storm
Jostling all the way without caring any norm
Subduing all that come along in their beefy arms

Ever watched the playful squirrels atop the hills
And the hares running here and there
The deer dancing through the rains
And the camels grazing and finding the unseen grains

Alas, those teeming millions in the bustling lines
Just lost in counting the unrewarding days and nights
Seeking and maliciously envying the useless dimes
Totally oblivious of the never returning youthful times
