‘Nuptial Evening’ by Yousuf bin Mohammad The Society August 2, 2016 Beauty, Poetry 2 Comments This eve set as elegant exhibit of skin deep beauty for old yearning stares, is time’s harsh labor’s brief retreat. The hands, henna-designed, serpentine snares to trap young wild and restless hearts which feed on dreams sojourned in eyes, more fleeting than the flashing camera lights. Midst this confused unrest two heart realize a single dream conceived at birth of souls and planted in a part in both the hearts when heart became the shelter of the soul; this eve they hold it fast firm not to part. In this wild glare of confused evanescence These flickering moons bear hopes of permanence.

Dwelling here Closer to the heart A reason a dream Undefined yet real. Moon colored pebbles Shining among plains A cluster Deeply driven Etched like a wound A rose or a moan Or a crimson scar A luminosity Or a distant spark. Lady of my heart Moon colored Raven haired Inaccessible Like a distant star. Durlabh Singh. Reply Yousuf bin Mohammad August 29, 2016 Thank you Durlabh sahab for yor precious poem in the comment.
