National Poetry Month

This is the month where some of us think we can think big and perhaps write poems. I have done this on Xanga for many years, except last year. So here are two poems from yesterday and today. Val, (murisopsis) has diligently given us titles for the month. Yesterday’s topic was SIMPLE, and today, it was HOMETOWN.



This siren, aware of her looks
walks alone, untouchable and aloof
arrogance in each step
showing supremacy in the way she holds her neck.

He looks at her and with a smile
says “Salam”, peace~~
One simple word, single and gracious
she lowers her neck and responds,
and Salam to you!

ZAS April 1st 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.
