My Musings

You listen to all my whisperings,

you know what lies in my heart;

Your gazes follow my breaths,

only you can foretell my untold parts.

 

Come, O Mariner! Sail my unsailable life,

pave the ways for warm sun and brisk wind;

O Aurous! Come, don’t test my patience,

never mind, if they can’t see your bling.

 

You don’t deserve a malicious end,

for me your arrival is a morning breeze;

Drop in some day to see my joy,

come before brimming desires freeze.

 

O Jolly! Will you listen to my forlorn stories?

How did I spend my silken nights without you?

O Zeal! I know you’ll join me one day,

you’re within my reach, I’m within you.

About Nikhat Bano

I am an ESP (English for Specific Purposes) Instructor and researcher for the past ten years. I have been teaching English as a subject to Undergraduate Engineering students and Diploma Engineering students and I have also done Ph. D in this field. I do write/present research papers in my teaching field. Apart from this I love to write romantic/spiritual poems and I find a great sense of relief and solace after penning down my thoughts on paper. It has now become a passion for me and will continue as long as I live.

    Reminds me of The ancient mariner in the poem The Rime of an Ancient Mariner but such a positive energy imbued to the mariner as the muse.

    Many thanks dear Nalini Shrivastava ji. Here, I have tried to draw analogy between a Mariner and a Belover. For a lover his Belover is a Mariner of his ship called life.

    Thanks for your interest.
