**the Spirit - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

The spirit survives the timeless
The phenomenon of existence
In the self when it goes mortal
Since time treads its own pace
From the momentary to eternal
Life is divided into small notes
In chords or played individually
Harmony in the cosmos of things
History is but rendition of events
In the spirit enters the being
From non being with each soul
From one form to another
And from another to the next
Is that to evolve is of the form
When form no more remains
Where shall then the spirit
Living is the abstraction of spirit
Seas of spirits that continue
In the magnificence as it unfolds
For the discerning is the spirit
Within to the vision of flight
The horse with wings on distant
Look to how it flies beneath
For the beauty that is in sight
