Time's Flight - Poem by Nosheen Irfan

Together we felt the caresses of the breeze
Together we heard the song of the rain
Drowned in love’s ecstasy
We had a vision of the paradise

Hands clasped, hearts entwined
Beauty abundant, love ripe
A pretty picture we made
Crowned in the glory of affection abound

Beauty, delight and love mingled
Petrified us into submission
Trees danced, wind whistled
Above our bowed heads

We lived and lived in the heart of love
Drank from its well, rested in its lap
The air was thick with the spring of life
Blossoms were all around

Moments passed, feelings subsided
A fleeting image it all became
Vanished from the sight and mind both
A victim of time’s inscrutable flight.

    In the last stasnza this vision of a perfectly balanced love has vanished in TIME'S FLIGHT, B-U-T in the fourth stanza you wrote: WE LIVED AND LIVED IN THE HEART OF LOVE and the whole stanza graced us with the fulfillment of love-hopes. Mymind jumped back to the fourth stanza after reading the last one. And guess what? TIME had circled around and his flight became a homecoming and the two faithful lovers were once again embracing IN THE HEART OF LOVE! Isn't that a wonderful change of events? (Report) Reply

    fleeting clock
    on the wall
    tells story
    of them all
