Poetry of Safdar Bhatti

Updated: Jul 25, 2023


 

Mark the bewitching bright lustre Of feminine accomplishment An arch, ampler brow White as the snow Where Love skats for hours Fringed by the reddish ringlets And mesmerizing eyes Twinkling like the skies Of a moonlit night Beacons of richest light Warm, visionary, elate, Ah! Love's lucid flow! They ardently greet The ever dreaming heart Flashing many a dart From the Cupid's bow And the coral pair Of smiling rosebuds Oh! the magnetic studs Above symmetrical chin Added by the winning grace Of a sweet Roman nose Make one eternally dose In visions of Aphrodisiac regime Where Graces love to play Waltzing day and night In jubilant ecstasy © SAFDAR BHATTI

 

We, almost every one of us, stick To the obsessions of our own Inconsiderate of others howsoever sick Howsoever worn, are thrown Their pleadings ruthlessly away The poor souls, the headstrong clay And if the miserable soul tries The obsessed other for little relief From Topsy-turvy longings' cries From sorrow, from corrosive grief Howsoever earnest the poor one implores The self-centered other strictly denies Blessing a mildewed heart nothing but sores See, how civilized are the Beings grown The peace-loving, love-spreading humankind Tongues are polite yet the actions frown. © SAFDAR BHATTI

 

WHAT'S ART Art, my dear, is the soul of an artist Art, my dear, is heart's expressions Art, my dear, is a fond lover's kiss Art, my dear, is the blackbird's song Art, my dear, is the candles-lit sky Art, my dear, is the blooming daisy Art, my dear, is the texture of rose Art, my dear, is the aromatic scent Inspires the souls to waltz In the richest of ecstasies Art, my dear, is the changing moon Art, my dear, is the rising sun Art, my dear, is to portray the heart In a pleasant array of melodic verse To win one's heart, to alleviate pain Of the worldly weariness Of an old wrinkled face Art, my dear, is the goodly grace Of the Artist Divine. ©SAFDAR BHATTI
