Life was not dust but at last it befell dust

How we have been boasting of this dust

images

My heart is foolish

Watching since dusk,

Blue sky’s blue moon

Watching since dusk

On the bosom of waves

Mounting, declining,

Storm of affection

Hitting the seashore;

Waves return like captives

Smash against prison’s dingy

Deaf walls, finding no way;

Outside the gloominess

Captivating beautiful life invites

Towards itself; heart is fascinated;

Heart is foolish,

Watching since dusk

Thinking————

Me the ocean and you the moon!

Before  creating Adam, Allah adorned the Earth with mountains, forests, fragrance, flora and fauna of all colors and shades, rainbow, rivers, oceans, clouds, ,rains, snow, cool breeze, pastures, meadows, fruits, vegetation,  birds, animals of all sizes,  plant life, grains and what not—- The sky to shimmer at night with stars and moon. The sea world was beautified with fishes of different colors and sizes along with sea undergrowth shrubbery which provide food too——just to please Adam! It was Allah’s love for His creation. God is love and love is God!

Eve was born from Adam to give company to him. But when Adam and Eve misguided by Satan were penalized and descended from heavens to Earth. All this was done out of love because Allah wanted to have more living beings so the couple gave birth to children on daily basis.  All hats off to mother Eve who bore labor pains everyday, just to bring new life to this earth.

Love knows no boundaries.  It has no color no shape no land no sex. It’s like a small lamp that illuminates the pitch darkness.

Love enhances blood circulation. It boosts energy. It brings twinkling in eyes. It brings life to the world when a baby is born. Bearing undaunted labor pains is nothing but love for a baby.

Love is universe and infinity. No one knows the deepness and intensity of it. Like galaxy, uncountable bright stars enlightening the world, so does love enlightens the heart. A tap on the shoulder pacifies the pain like;

I  shed a tear, unseen, unheard;

You saw it, you felt it,                                 

You held it,

And there was not a tear at all!

My mother was a symbol of love. She went through torturous labor pains to give birth to fourteen children one after the other. Out of fourteen 12 of her children died for one or the other reason. Every time she hoped that her next child will survive.

Wasn’t it love?

My mother was very kind hearted. She could not see any one in pain. She would take care of ailing birds, animals and human beings alike without any discrimination.

We had a pair   of dogs.  Their names were Shaky and Lobo.  Shaky was shot by a sniper. Wounded and profusely bleeding Shaky limping came to my mother for help. But my mother being old and a cancer patient was bed ridden. She couldn’t get up or do any thing herself. Unfortunately no one was home at time. Shaky died under my   mother’s bed. Lobo shed tears so did my mother with them. Shaky was buried in the backyard. Lobo couldn’t bear the loss of its mate. She got very ill and died too.

Once a sick robin fell down from the tree and broke its leg.  My mother fed her and took great care of her. That robin often came to pay her gratitude to my mother. It was mutual understanding between the two. When mother got ill and was bedridden that robin visited her everyday without fail. It sat on the window sill for some time and flew away.  The robin was never seen again when my mother passed away.

It was her silent love for my mother.

My mother was a symbol of love. May her soul rest in the best place in heaven and Allah be showering His blessings upon her.  Amen

To be lost in the ocean of chances

To neglect all for your soggy eyes;

 

Sometimes go and share with stars

About heart’s feelings or flowers,

Either squander day silently or

Be asleep in a meaningless way;

 

At times shed tears, at times veil them,

I evoke all, being lost on the way at dusk

 

Heart is foolish

Watching since dusk,

Blue sky’s blue moon

Watching since dusk

 On bosom of waves

 Mounting, declining,

Storm of affection is

Hitting the seashore;

Waves return like captives

Smash against prison’s drab

Deaf walls, finding no way;

Outside the gloomy walls

Captivating beautiful life invites

 Towards itself; heart is fascinated;

Heart is foolish,

Watching since dusk

Thinking————

Me ocean, and you moon!
