Nature is Wildly Dramatic
 
Nature is wildly dramatic in its power spending,
Sometimes, it is like a brute prone to prove its murderous skill,
Sometimes, it is like a mother prone to protect against all ill,
We have to comprehend Nature with all its mood swings,
Its viciousness when it’s vicious, its generousness when it’s generous.
For having the full impact of drama,
It partitions its colossal power between wind, water, fire and ice.
 
Nature is wind when it lulls and caresses,
Nature is water when it purifies and extinguishes,
Nature is fire when it warms up and sympathizes,
Nature is ice when it cools down and relieves.
Nature is wind when it storms and crashes,
Nature is water when it floods and drowns,
Nature is fire when it burns and impairs,
Nature is ice when it frostbites and pierces,
Nature’s soft heartedness ensures a happy ending.
Nature’s hard heartedness ensures a tragic ending.
However, Nature is wildly dramatic in its power spending.

Oh Sea!
 
Oh sea, carry me to your core
Make me yours and I want no more.
I won’t be like your waves for sure
Who always love to runaway for shore
You will have nothing to deplore.
Just bestow me with the wings of water
that have no extinction to offer
that have no purity improper
That will enable me to explore
Your currents, your tides and your ocean floor
I will never leave you in tsunami, whirlpool, sea storm or more
As they are yours because you keep them all in store
I have not made this plea for you to ignore
Make me yours and I want no more.
 
*Syedah Maryam Iqbal*
 
 
 
A Rolling Stone
 
Rolling down through the sidewalk,
The stone looked towards the mountain—
Eyes full of tears, heartbroken,
With a feeling of emptiness and downtrodden—
It thought with bleeding soul,
I was once a fraction of your opulence,
Now anonymous without confidence,
Proceeding towards the unknown,
Destined to be alone.
My rolling will go on,
My existence withdrawn,
Moving towards destinations unknown.
 
*Syedah Maryam Iqbal*
