Poem by Dr. Jawaz Jaffri
A Poem for Atal Bihari Vajpayee
My Enemy !
Have you forsaken reading
That is written on the hems of petals
with the hands of dew
Doesn’t the smile
On the flowery faces of your children
knock at the door of your heart?
in my hatred,
Have you discarded woman and Fragrance?
Have you learnt like me
To prefer Death to Life and Peace ?
We both are the Weaponed Passengers,
of the same boat, floating
into the ocean of boundless spaces.
our interests are different
Butt Catastrophe is the same;
