The poem(s) are below...



As the day is folded up like
An old woman's wrapper and

The sun in it has been blinded by
The orange clouds of heaven. As

The twilight starts playing with dusts 
But, fills  noses with the sweet fragrance
Of flourishing petals. The night will
Crawl in like a snail does on a wall

The stars will peep out to
adorn the boring sky; crickets will be 
praising thy mighty with
Their tiny tones, while frogs
Will be croaking in cursing the oppressors

The owl will perch on a dying tree; starring at
A soul dessolating a body, so that
At end of the people's sorrowful 
wailing, he will hoot in mockery to
Embrace their hot dropping tears

The crow will sit on a bench
of graveyards, looking 
At our undying dead walking 
around the woods and hoods;
mumbling the secrecy of their deaths

The mauraders: travellers of every 
nooks and crannies of the earth 
while silence walks the lands.

Daud Ismail, nature as wondrous as it is, stands aloof at mankinds follies. Another deeply reflective poem. Peace!
