    Sister!
    I miss you a lot
    since you decided
    not to be seen
    If you can listen
    cry of my soul
    apathy of my ink
    as if dried
    only thinking of you
    for your pleasure
    a smile
    which you ever made
    your insight
    your vision
    where the life prosecute
    with full gleam.
    I agree
    disabledness of life
    is at every step
    but is never broken
    God will even loose
    all His existance
    if there is none to worship
    Whenever I turn your page
    my soul asks me to listen
    every new word
    sprouting from your soul
    yet to glister the world
    A man can return
    values of all loves
    even the debt of milk
    but love of a sister
    which is always selfless
    has no return
    except everlasting pleasures
    on her face

    As every gem in a nature
    unique
    Shahzia a diamond
    rear and unique
    breath of heaven
    Her poetry with hues of nature

  • Payal Parande (8/13/2013 1:24:00 PM)

    there is so much to tell about shahzia didi and her poetry but it would probably take months, but i'll try my best
    she is an authentic person and a poet her poems tell truth in a unique way, each word pure and and comes right from bottom of her heart, and you won't be disappointed a bit

    may you reach the infinity didi
    love
    payal

    For Shahzia, poetry is an engulfing passion, yet she never allows herself to be carried away into the filmy world of illusions. She has her feet grounded on the realities of life and she looks at life squarely on the face. Bold and practical, confident and outspoken, she is uncompromising about values and fairness. Though progressive and modern in thinking, she clings onto the conventional teachings of religion and God and maintains deep respect for parents and teachers. Her deceased parents- an ever alive presence in many of her poems speak volumes about the felial gratitude, she has for those who made her what she is.

    She weaves her words around themes that are intimately personal, yet universal. My Scattered Thoughts- a poetic series bear ample testimony to it. It is an account of the inner struggle faced by man (the poet) in every day life, but the constant effort of an indomitable spirit to conquer it and prove himself/herself unassailable. I wish this gifted poet and critic all success! !

    “My Scattered Thoughts” series is undoubtedly one of your masterpieces. It is not only one of your great works but also a great addition in the world of poetry. We find true and pure verses here; verses that are directly from the heart, there is no artificial flavour added but a pure, original, real composition. After reading these poems, I figured out that you have a deep, wonderful insight into human emotions and feelings as we all suffer from inner conflicts, the war inside us which is not always destructive. There are some lines which are written in the same stream as if they were the constituent elements or focal point of the poems.

    • Should I blame others when I could not understand myself?

    • Am I wrong if I wish to be liked for what I am,

    And not for what you like me to be?

    • Long before I've left the deception of knowing myself! ! !

    • what i was, i am not, somebody said,
    what i am, i shall not be
    but one regret will be there,
    i shall lose the essential Me, i love the most, ...

    • you got failed
    for not performing
    the feat of understanding me,
    for how can you?
    when i myself could never...

    The idea which is being stressed here is that we think we know ourselves well but in certain situations we react differently which suggest that even we don’t know ourselves then how can others claim that they know us better. Secondly, we all have our identity, a differentiating quality, so one should be acclaimed for his real being.

    • Mood-the master, I-the bond slave,
    though that is how I,
    the masochist pharoah
    execute the world by my silence
    just for the commission of the crime

    These lines are lovely. Great work! ! ! :)

    For Shahzia Batool Sahibaan I will end with an Acrostic- -

    Saddle-tough simplicity is her attire
    Her tools of acquaintance toils in season
    Always quiet searching an indomitable within
    Her life in sublime verses black and white rowel
    Zoomed in and out the zebras run
    In extenuating her every characters
    Always welcomed wary of a clear conscience

    Be the snows still a mile more to shovel
    And be circumstances blaming on shoulders
    The joy of rhyme in leaps and spurs
    On quest of an oasis to
    Oil generated in the weather of work
    Lullaby in the hours of sentry

    Sister Shahzia Batool is a sweet and caring person. she can realise feelings of every one which is the best character of any poet/poetess. she has deep knowledge and well versed in literature. I wish for her prosperous life.

    I have read all your poems and I strongly believe that you have a beautiful writing style. I always wait for your poems, read them because they truly depict human emotions and feelings. A true poet is the one whose poetry is comprehensible. I call your poetry “talking poetry “or “talking verses”. You made your poetry “talk” as it speaks to the reader which is a great accomplishment. Your firm control of language shows your genius, your exceptional intellectual or creative power or natural ability. Although your poetry is simple but it is loaded with meanings. I just love to explore the underlying meanings of your apparently simple poetry. One of my favourite poems is DISCOVERY. It has a lovely theme. Keep writing and stay blessed! ! !

    I read some where when eyes are lost, sight is lost, if vision is lost every thing is lost...Shahzia's insight vision is very strong, Her poetry maps the thought of the society (present) , She is restless in her poetry, and creats a movement on the thought of the reader

  • Tribhawan Kaul Tribhawan Kaul (12/17/2012 2:47:00 AM)

    Shahzia Batool is a great poet cum scholar. She writes poetry through her heart.. Her insightful comments, constructive opinion and suggestions show her skills not only as a poet but an appreciative critic, an analyst and a great human being. I wish her all the best for her poetic endeavours and in her professional life.

Best Poem of Shahzia Batool

If God Sends My Maa For A While!

I shall lay my head on her knees
Believing that God must have cured her arthritic joints in heaven,
Then she will brush my hair with her fingers
And I shall tell her all my soul suffered from;

I shall complain of the bouquet of roses
That pricked my hands despite the silk-ribbon
And scotch-tape woven around it carefully;

I shall tell her the tricks of the winds
Blowing roughly on me leaving all others
And of clouds that shower benign rain
On all others leaving me,
Though I stand under them with a bowl
In my hands raised skywards
Which stays ...

Read the full of If God Sends My Maa For A While!

To The Descending Sun!

Why art thou pale
and sad and sick...
carrying no happy thought with thee...
why lost thy vigor
and zeal and zest
casting shadows-
dark and deep
but mixed with somber evening shine
like a death-bed patient's parting smile
