CONVOCATION OF THE REPROACHED BODY/ M. Hameed Shahid

abstract-art-mother-earth

Each grain

Of life’s harvest,

Is parched,

In the oven of distressed.

Insipid mornings and frightful nights,

Breath-bound together.

Ferocious cat of the by-gone moments,

Tear may bluechethermic body,

With their scimitar sort of teeth,

Flying dust of time,

Buries my body in the past

I am certain,

Tomorrow, when

The ruins would be excavated,

And my petrified body cleansed,

It would be displayed,

Before the amazing eyes.

(From Urdu into English by B. H. Nazim)
