POEM: Beyond Seas

SHARE

 

SHAFAQNA-
I shall build a boat
I shall cast it in the water
I shall sail away from this strange earth
Where no one awaken the heroes in the wood of love
A boat empty of net
And longing heart for pearls
I shall continue sailing
Neither I shall loose my heart for the blues
Nor for the mermaids who emerge from the water
To spread their charm from their locks
On the shining solitude of fishermen
I shall continue sailing
I shall continue singing
“One should sail away, sail away.”‌
The man in that town had no myth
The woman in that town was not as brimful as a cluster of grapes
No hall mirror repeated joys
Not even puddles reflected a torch
One should sail away, sail away
Night has sung its song
Now it is the turn of windows
I shall continue sailing
I shall continue singing
Beyond the seas there is a town
In which windows open to manifestation
There rooftops quarter pigeons that looks at the jets of human intelligence
In the hand of each 10-year-old child a branch of knowledge lies
The townsfolk took at hedges
As if they look at a flame, a tender dream
Earth hears the music of your feeling
And the fluttering sound of mythological birds are heard in the wind
Beyond the seas there is a town
Where the sun is as wide as the eyes of early-risers
Poets inherit water, wisdom and light
Beyond the seas there is a town!
One must build a boat
