RANDOMS

Rain does not have speech
But it can whisper soothingly
Just as it can give an angry tongue lashing
Rain does not speak
But still, our ears can perceive

 

I have seen life cheat time
As I witnessed a flower
Emerge from a bud
I have seen death defeat life
As a life ebbed away just after birth
In front of my eyes
But your overawing beauty
Can never cheat me
Of the innocence
Of your childhood
– my attempt at reworking on Yusuf Bookwala’s original
