Events Greetings

1) I miss you a lot baby and don’t worry… I’ll wait no matter how long it takes for you to make up your mind. xoxo

2) I love hugging you but I hate letting go. I love saying hello but I hate saying goodbye. I love watching you come towards me but I hate watching you walk away. I miss you.

3) A fish without fins, a bird without wings. A crab without claws, a cat without paws. Me without you, you without me. I miss you.

4) I have been diagnosed with the deadly I Miss You Syndrome due to which I suffer from a permanent and irreversible disability of Missing You all the time. I miss you sweetheart.

5) I want to hold your hand, hold you close, hug you tightly, kiss you softly, and let you rest your head on my chest so that you can hear my heart beat… just for you. I miss you.

Dylan's City

 

The serpentine chain of terraced houses

With their congregation of chimneys

Cloak the hills

Below the City Centre thrives

On tearooms and cafés

With free Wi-Fi and cookies on trays

People live in the cyber world of smart phones

Some pause to drop pennies for songs of praise

Especially those who have nothing more to lose

Life moves at a fast pace

But the past exerts itself

Resists change

Poetry still echoes in the streets

Of Swansea

Verses glow in Brunswick

Or the Uplands Tavern

Poets still meet at the DTC*

They read

To keep the ghost of Dylan alive

And not far

The bay caresses the oyster mouth road

Gently.

 

Dr Shehzad Latif

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I was invited to the Lord Mayors Mansion house by personal invitation to attend the centenary celebrations of Dylan Thomas. The poem was based on the theme.

Girl after a girl: Events unforgettable

 

 

Part I

 

1) With a ‘to’ and a ‘fro’ in her throat,

something she did note,

as on a piece of paper, she wrote

"I can't like you, for you don't know -

I got to go away - to which I can't say No."

Well, every girl is so so pretty.

 

2) With her legs beside me, so stiff

and -to save me- her hands with great mischief,

she conveys to the punishment chief -

"Oh Ma'am? How can he be guilty?

As this is his first moment to my proximity!"

Well, every girl is so so pretty.

 

3) With all her teeth and gums out

and her tiny eyes so stout,

she beckons me with a shout -

"Go! I won't talk anymore to you.

How much I am hurt, you never knew."

Well, every girl is so so pretty.

 

4) With real tears in her eyes

and five of her fingers glued to rice,

maybe yes, twice - she cries -

"How would you know how much I moan!

For, never you, I am disturbed alone."

Well, every girl is so so pretty.

 

5) With a big grin at my face,

but with a big cry, the very next phase,

at my back this time, she says -

"He wouldn't have really scolded me,

If, even little, he had ever read me."

Well, every girl is so so pretty.

 

6) With a rise in all her gaze over the book,

when asked for her verses, she gave me an eerie look.

Soon, she wrote for me; Almost a month it took! -

"Though difficult, try to remember me

for, perhaps many for you, though you're alone for me."

Well, every girl is so so pretty.

 

From a girl, only another girl keeps one away,

but not from past nor future, for there're many more girls, I say.

An event with a girl can give a great kick start

that can lead anyone, till many suns set.

Memories of brain written from heart -

a few of many incidents I could not forget!

 


Part II

 

7) With drops falling down as she bends

her neck, in some reunion -she attends

after a year- she tells our friends -

Long back, He stopped talking to me.

Neither a hello nor a glance – as if I’m his enemy.

Well, every girl is so so pretty.

 

8) With a smile -she leaves the lab- too fake one

and with swollen eyes -returns in- pointing none.

Then, a message leaves her, following the sun -

A friend can be anything, but not a sister!

So, please don’t ever call me so, you mister!

Well, every girl is so so pretty.

 

9) With good red expressions – contorted,

while issues were being sorted

out about my interest in her, her words parted –

Oh, now please stop it! I want no fight.

I understand it and it’s completely alright!

Well, every girl is so so pretty.

 

10) With her ideas so optimistic,

though actions far realistic,

she typed something very mystic -

Had you worked, excellence of now would have been average

Anyways, any failure to be understood needs courage.

Well, every girl is so so pretty.

 

11) With her face full of joy and hope

and beliefs no less than some pope,

she always replies, to my theory of mortality, with nope -

The word End, with someone can also be Never,

for the person may know words like Forever.

Well, every girl is so so pretty.

 

12) With a look so cheerless, that can shrink

one’s heart -though sometimes so cheerful that can kink

it’s beat- she said or typed - I think -

Really miss you as I sometimes also saw my ex in you.

You played big part in my life, though days were very few.

Well, every girl is so so pretty.

 

Lies apart, any girl can make your day,

no matter whether you are a guy, girl or a gay

This is a small tribute to a small part

of all the girls I met.

Memories of brain written from heart -

a few of the incidents I could never forget!

 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A saga written as a ode about incidents revolving in mind, involving a few of the girls I met. Their sounds still ring in my head!

IN A DAY LIKE TODAY (Sonnet)

~In A Day Like Today~
(Sonnet)

For winter,kind of cool here,yes,it was
Very nice today,completed quite some,a bit
Then just relaxed,reflected 'long,did sit
After many chores I've done,took a pause
Read in 1927 Dr.Seuss marri'd Helen Palmer
In 1927, King Tut's tomb was discovered too
Many events in a day like today
Befell.Some good,some bad,catchy scar or star.

Turn off TV.Only depressing,joyless shows
Today,writing here another new sonnet
Now,again,for a third day in a row
Mulling over,just surfing round the net.

In 1877,Edison his crank'd phonograph play'd
In 1981,famed,actress Natalie Wood died.
