The Conference Of The Nightingales - Poem by Ahmad Shiddiqi

what pleasures could we need?
whose The Empress we served?
where real joys our soul mates were?

with the love of beloved children
we'll decorate the most splendid sun
we'll recite the divine magnetic verses

our wishes are heavy with many sparkles
like ripe moon bearing down the crystal lake
that flies across to Greenland, and sings aloud

    The pleasure in servitude,
    Comes to meet the art and skills within,
    It is in the beauty of knowing thine art,
    Against the vulgar naked greed that lies within.

    I've not seen a nightingale but I know it's a bird specie. And I know one Nightingale who was loving and kind, she was the patron of all care givers or a nurse during one of the forgotten European wars. Wish we all have that kind of soul mate. I agree with our poet friends, the phrases and practically the lines are well written, carefully thought and choosen. You deserve a 10. (Report)Reply

    The phrases used in this piece are chosen with care - - 'the ripe moon' being one of them is especially evocative.10/10 from Fay. (Report)Reply
