So Close To Our Hearts



In the incomparable beauty,
Blend of color,
Balance and proportion,
And the absolute perfection,
Peace and preeminence
Of design and creation,
That we see around us,
We see the Hand of Allah,
The Glorious Almighty
Who just willed it all.
And within seconds
Magnificence evolved
Like music and rhythm
And we learnt at heart
To marvel at every miracle
That unfolds in calm
Like the sun at dawn
Before our eyes
Every minute of the day
And every moment of night.

M.A.Q. Rizvon

The son of a well-known Urdu poet, I have been fascinated by the idea of atleast one or two collections of Urdu poems to be published. An India born American, I retain a love for poetry inherited from my dad. Urdu is one of the world languages that have a direct rise from the heart. It is more music than prose, and this love translates easily to other languages. The combination of English and Urdu gives us a unique harmony and cultural finesse. It has been easy for me to be an English poet of some rank. At age 91, I feel I have the best grooming to be able to avail a synthesis of not only the two best world languages but also a fusion of two different civilizations. It is a happy life that has been granted to me as I avail the climatic contrast and have, as the saying goes, the best of both worlds. I believe Urdu is the best fount for advancement in English. My first published book of poems is a slim volume titled - 'From My Heart to Yours' that has gained a good footing in the western world also. My wife of 71 years has been of great support to me and I am both glad and proud that we have never had any difference of opinion on any issue and my poems reflect the harmony that exists between us. more…
