Twist Of Thoughts - Poem by Usman Hanif
Leaves are fallin off the trees,
Mists are calling from the dreams,
Snow is trying to fall off the sky,
But nature says that it's the lie.
I walk the road buried in leaves,
Everything on spring's death grieves,
I move in the chirping of the birds,
In the flowers and trees' silent surds,
The trees are like twisted thoughts,
Like swished and misted naughts,
Like the burning fire in the water,
Does'nt extinguish, makes it hotter.
Like rodents flying and birds walking,
Speaking becomes silent and silent talking,
Numb become mobile and weeping mocking,
Stars become sky and moon still trotting.
Like streams become ponds and fire cold,
Beaters become beaten and shy bold,
Victorious become defeated but losers
Get the stronghold's and flag's hold.
Like butterflies without the wings crawling,
Dogs without anyone to master howling,
Moon still trotting and stars skying,
Night becoming day and sun still bowling,
Courage becoming fear and fear encouraging,
Smile becoming tear and tear flourishing,
Thought becoming action and action afloat,
Like in midst of desert a rowing boat.
These are just occuring, burning nots,
Like meat placed in the air rots,
And cotton waved in the air blots.
But it's a crazy mad twist of thoughts...
