Life Returns as Winter Ends



The skyline of denuded branches
Standing sorrowful and bleak
In the winterscape of what had been
A bright sunlit garden of joy.
There are lumps of melting snow
Still sitting on the unkempt lawn
And on the stone slabs of the steps
That lead to our home, our world.
I could not go out or ride today
My bike or play with my friends.
There is such a biting wind chill
That drives the temperature down
Far below zero as the wind howls.
Some more days of eager waiting
And the sun will shine bright again
Life will return and the winter end.
The plants will bring forth flowers
The lawns will be shining and smiling
The trees will be in regal splendor
As new leaves fill them and hug them
Like children to their loving mother.

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…
