What journey is this—-
The day is endless
The night, it refuses to rest.

I walk with endless hopes in darkness

To the place
Which holds you
Your voice calling to me

 And now
That I see you,
Touch you,

Beautiful sunshine at midnight!


ZSA 2016.



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.

  1. I can feel the tiredness and frustration in the poem. The last line about the blinding light scares me a bit.

      Late at night I thought that I should have instead said, “bright sunshine at midnight”! I think I will change that line. Thanks for the analysis dear Mark. Love. ❤

  2. A long and tiring way in hopeland but rewarded . Lovely poem, Zakiah.
    Love ❤

  3. OH! This is so inspiring and reminds me to never give up! Sometimes they (whoever “they” are 😉 ) say something like “it’s not about the destination, but about the journey”…but, sometimes I think it IS about the destination. 🙂
    Thank you for sharing your poems, SweetZ.!
    HUGS!!! 🙂

      If it weren’t about the destination, why bother with the journey? Destinations are like goals that you aspire to reach.
      Love and hugs to you Carolyn. ❤
