Poem by Kazhal Ibrahim

Poem by Kazhal Ibrahim Khedir

 

I wrote a poem for the sky –

The earth got mad at me.

I wrote a poem for the sun –

Cloud hid itself from me.

I wrote a poem for the rain –

Hail fell down on me.

When I wrote a poem for my beloved,

They came and dug a grave for me.

 

(translated by Bakhtiar Rasheed)
