*the Cycle Of Day And Night* Poem by Mohammad Akmal Nazir

*the Cycle Of Day And Night*

Rating: 2.5

When chirping of birds reaches my ear,
When the call of the caller
Does the heart tear,
When the rippling of the river do I hear,
I smile and thank Him
For the beautiful morning.

When the sun travels towards the west,
When evening bares her dark breast,
When fog descends on
the snowy crest,
I smile and thank Him
For the graceful decline.

When sky is filled with blinking light,
When evening leaves for the drowsy night,
When stillness enhances night delight.
I smile and thank Him
For the meaningful dark
For after every night
It is morning again.
Thus the cycle continues
Till the time unknown.

Note: Call of the caller-Muazzin who calls azaan before salaat.

And I think I got to hear that call when I was briefly touring Jordan 11.5 years ago! This is a delightful poem with the beauty of thankfulness in the almost exquisite beauty of the mornings and evenings, to the Lord Who gave and made them and all. I quite enjoyed this! (Unfortunately, upon reconsideration....I fear it is not really the Lord the caller exhorts the hearers to thank.)

A beautiful presentation of the cycle of day and night through your poetry. The poem is an excellent piece of expression. The morning that removes the darkness takes birth with call of the caller.

Come morning and the breath of air That breaks the calm that was there Fog is slow to arrive in the cool And forms in a low lying pool Masking for all to see That another day is about to be Where things never are as they were before And there is no way to bring back or restore.

Good marriage between devotion and nature. Ilike 'When the sun travels towards the west, When evening bares her dark breast'. Please refer to my poem 'A play called the coming of day'.
