POETRY OF SHAHID ABBAS
"BELOVED RAIN" Today, you are pouring on my heart
I remain alone, but then you arrived and behaved like a soul part
I'm in love with you since the day
When you washed my sorrows and I had no words to say.
You are the beauty of all beauties which rebirth the wonders
I never move to any trees under
Come what may, we love each other,
Thus no need to look for another
I can't hide my emotions as my eyes get wet,
When your drops pour on me as I sit
You are my beloved
I remember the day when someone shoved
And I found myself among the heavenly drops
Wow, the love at first sight after the meeting I never stop
You and I are loyal friends
We adore each other and never offend
You are my everlasting crave
In your company, I wish to make a long drive
You are the cause of happiness for all creatures,
You nourish the beauty of all nature
Since the night I waited for you as I
gaze at the sky,
I talked about you to a pretty tiny sparrow,
she smiled and replied
Oh, Divine lover
I don't fly high
But I have been told a secret by one who never lies
Your beloved is coming through the heavenly door
So there is no need to wait for more.

Blowing through the clear morning
Spying on my soul.

Our Love binds us tight
I hide in my Mom's shadow
here I'm quiet - safe

Turning Turning - clay becomes pot
Love's action through water
