naisaiku week 10

[ echoes of indian poetry - 3 ] ~

" huyee muddat ke ' ghalib' mar gaya par yaad aata hai
woh har ik baat peh kehna ke yun hota to kya hota " ~

long dead is ghalib
had ' what ifs ' for everything
WHAT IF THIS WAS THAT
his thoughts they keep returniing
( but ghalib does not ) ~ ghalib

[ ~ ghalib~ urdu poetry ]

/ naisaiku / translation(draft) /z.g.©

raise the spirits high
this vodka whiskey and rum
THEY SEND ME FALLING
this vodka whiskey and rum
raise the spirits high .
