Delusional Cover Photo

With sundown comes your remembrance
Gentle breeze enhances entire ambiance
My heart sinks and beats in thy remembrance
With sun’s setting, evening overcomes ambiance
When the daylight and the evening both embrace
The light wind is enchanted of flowers’ fragrance
The entire city is wrapped up in cavernous trance
My dreams my sleeping is all in your entrance
The windows’ light diffused away the radiance
My conversant was simply my aloneness
غزل
یاد آئی ہے تری شام ہوئی
باد لہرائی سر بام ہوئی
دل مرا ڈوبتا ہے رکتا ہے
دن ڈهلا اور ادهر شام ہوئی
وقت ملتے ہیں جب گلے دونوں
خوشبوئے گل صبا میں عام ہوئی
سوگیا شهر بہت دیر ہوئے
خواب میں نیند ترے نام ہوئی
روشنی کهڑکیوں میں ڈوب گئی
میری تنہائی ہمکلام ہوئی
انور زاہدی

A lamp of hope alone

When, builds a home in dark

Smiles, at its being there!

In the midst of hope and wishes;

Know what, it’s unaware of

The   wicked tricks of cruelty;

Who went beyond the darkness?

Who brought info of radiance?

A lamp of hope alone!

When fondles on my lap,

How deeply my heart aches;

Its bright twinkling eyes,

If couldn’t give vision, but

I promise to guide the way

To the dense forests’ border

Show footprints of those gone;

 A lamp of hope alone

That shimmers in my patio,

I feel drawn to it, lovingly

In its soft dim radiance

 

Noor means radiance. Can we see colors, rain, rainbow, flowers, and beauty of nature or the disaster of nature in its absence? No, we simply can’t.

Though Light has no figure but it gives form and color to everything that exists around us; in the sky, on the sky, in the depths of the oceans—–everywhere.

Noor Muhammad is like light. He portrays his heart felt experiences, good and aching, through his teaching, paintings, poetry, stories and calligraphy.

We too, see everything, but being not as sensitive, kindhearted, keen observer, creative and expressive like him, ignore and just pass by. He is a multifaceted humane human. He probes and picks the deep-seated ailments which are disregarded generally.

I am grateful to Majid, who introduced Noor to me through his books and brochure.  I had not known or heard of Noor before. But as I started reading his books Kachokay (pricks) his ardent observation of human nature started to unfolding.

I never read such a book earlier. It did prick me sharply. Honestly I felt ashamed of myself for being so unaware of the wounds that bleed that are caused by us, the society.

The second book is based on the tragedies of dreadful earthquake of 2005 in Kashmir and northern areas of Pakistan. Northern areas of Pakistan were known to be charismatically beautiful natural beauty. Breathtaking picturesque charm allured the tourists and the natives before October 2005. But it was brutally spoiled by the after effects of the earthquake.

Noor has very skillfully portrayed all in his poetry and paintings.

I translated some of his verses into English. And feel great pleasure that they are equally appreciated nationally and internationally.

He is diabetic. Got his toe mutilated in Liaquat National Hospital recently. I have not met him or seen him, but they way he talks to me on the phone are very cultured. May he live a long healthy life to enable us, to wipe tears of the ailing by his intuitive skillfulness?

Roses in my hand——!

 

Some roses I have in my hands

  Having those unrealized dreams  

 

Colors dappled all around me

Oasis is in the barren regions

 

May not be there in your fondness

At least there under your chastise

 

Words transforming into meaning

 Accomplished responses from life

 

Radiance remains on the trees

Jungles boomed full blossoms

 

In night’s peaceful scenario

Attuned is musical melody

 

What’s significance of this era?

Bubbles are on the brink of era
