Poetry and Presentation.


The moon did not become the sun.
It just fell on the desert
in great sheets, reams
of silver handmade by you.
The night is your cottage industry now,
the day is your brisk emporium.
The world is full of paper.

Write to me.

Agha Shahid Ali (1987)

He has written beautiful ghazal like poetry, and this is one of my personal favourites.
As I sit here navigating myself through columns of texts and pillars of poetry, my heart is sinking, shrinking, and I find myself dangerously close to plunging into the silent darkness.
