MERMAID – Roma Rizvi / Translated by: Muhammad Azram

Poem by Roma Rizvi
The one which flows far
From the water of rivers
Mermaid lives on those shores
From the very childhood
Endeavored to unearth her
I have been tracing dark nights
From the numerous stars
I heard many chapters of story
Asked whereabouts from soaked winds
Abortively my ears rapt
On Every single timbre of footstep
Even today —for a glimpse of mermaid
I leave my door faintly open
Whether — Mermaid exists or not
Even today— I have not been able to prosper
Translated by: Muhammad Azram
