The Lost Pearl©

I press my hand to my heart
It is really your heart!
You push me away
Like your breath through the flute.

Your love like a pearl in my soul
I guarded all hours of my days and nights;
Now these oceans of pearling currents
surround my soul, and
I know not which pearl was mine.©

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.

    A love song to Krishna? or a beloved; regardless…wonder-full.

      Actually to no one in particular. Words come helter-skelter and I
      just jot them down. Krishna is the name of a Hindu God. A Muslim though he/she respects all religions, does not write or extoll the merits of those deities except in movies. I am glad you liked the poem though. I thought it was a simple stretch of imagination. 🙂
