Lately, I have been reading poetry by Faiz Ahmad Faiz – Lovely poetry and especially poignant. Perhaps, I read both these pieces while in a relatively contemplative frame of mind. Hence, I am inclined to putting them on my blog.

Loneliness

Loneliness like a good, old friend
visits my house to pour wine in the evening.
And we sit together, waiting for the moon,
and for your face to sparkle in every shadow.

Last Night

Last night your lost memory visited my heart
as spring visits the wilderness quietly,
as the breeze echoes the silence of her footfalls
in the desert,
as peace slowly, softly descends on one’s sickness.
