This was a post I had put up a long time ago. Suddenly its relevance struck me and I decided to post it afresh. I am still looking for the rest of the ghazal! This is the problem with writing on grocery bills and Pizza Hut paper napkins!! 😦
Autumn was recently in the discussion I had with a friend, and love is always in the air!! 😉
Yoon hi hasta rahta hoon,
Is dard ki koi dava na mili.
Fitrat ko pat-jhar jaise,
Dil ko woh aashiqui mili.
I laugh away my days, now,
No salve to assuage the pain.
Like Nature begot Autumn,
This heart bore a lover’s name.

I write on grocery bills, too.>>Your second image is very captivating. Almost haunting and I keep coming back to it. I love its composition and its monochromatic quality…Where was it taken?>>Like your ghazal, I also think that Nature conceived Autumn with love in mind, which is yet another reason to call it fall…I hope you find the rest of it.
Dear L,> Thank you. Glad you didn’t have to strain your eyes reading this one… 🙂>>Dear W,> Merci! 🙂>>Dear NotR,> I needed the 2nd image to transition from the colourfulness of early Autumn to the barenness it assumes later… Glad you liked it. 🙂
