What do you think?


listen to me
we are here for just a few moments
let’s hum our old songs
pretend there is music on the other side of this river
let our fingers feel the charged sparks
listen to our footsteps dance on the surface of our hearts
and please,
let’s forget the world around us~
what do you think?

ZSA March 2014.






About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    Yes, let us not forget the world around us. Sometimes I think of God being like a mother with a house full of kids misbehaving and need correction.

    beautiful picture Zakiah, i often see horses where my relatives live but just never get the time to take a thoughtfully composed photo of them. they are amazing creatures. and this is an amazing piece. thanks for sharing!

  7. I say YES! 🙂
    I think horses are the most beautiful of all the animals! And to see them run and play and even just stand resting…is a wonderful sight to me!
    It’s nice to forget about the world…it’s even nicer to have others join you in doing so. 🙂
    HUGS and ♥ !!! 🙂

    Love the photo of the horses and the escape into another world while still seeing what is around us. The world is a very beautiful place.
