...who is a POET??...he is...but a dethroned king sitting among the ashes of his palace trying to fashion an image out of the ashes...
..he is the poorest of the poor..yet he carries an oasis in his heart cultivated by the caravan of his thinking...he is a pauper..but he still pretends to be a ' prince ' in the kingdom of his vivid imagination..
..he only sings when he is starving for he cannot sing if his mouth be filled with food...
..he only raises his hand to beg for he cannot raise his hands if it be filled with gold...
..his wealth is his winged imagination and fictive power to think...and ' thinking ' always acts for him as the stumbling stone to ' poetry '... :) ;)
..he is a tree watered by the river of beautiful thoughts..and carries in his heart a lamp unconquered by darkness..
..yes..he seeks NIRVANA..not by counting coins of gold..but in leading his sheep to greener pasture..in seeking a smile from humanity...in putting his child to sleep..and in writing the last line of his poem... :)

...he will be unheard until humans honor the dead and forget the living..for then only upon his ' death '... ' he ' will rule their hearts...and his kingdom will have no ending... :) :) ;)
..TO HAVE GREAT POETS..THERE MUST BE GREAT AUDIENCES TOO... :)

Princess Maggie ;)


In a faraway land lives a Princess
for whom anyone would shun all the riches
When for company she is having a lappy
that is the thing that makes her most happy
Becoming a software engineer is what she aspires
she ll become one even if the whole world conspires
She's very fond of chocolates
her intelligence is what has won her lots of accolades
Wishes to fly upon the blue open skies
carries big dreams which i can see in her eyes
Loves walking down the country lanes
right now studying in the plains
Her heart is a masterpiece
even if keep on praising it can never cease
Whenever she is having a vivid imagination
its about Goher she's having hallucination
Staying behind bulky books of piled heap
she is sowing the seeds for which fruits she ll reap
All i had been thinking about all the while
is nothing but her beautiful magnetic smile
A real 'foodie' she eats food of all kind
i think that is the string that keeps us bind
Dear friends i think it was my duty
to let you know about her inner beauty
Right now we are rowing the boat as friends
i hope it keeps on floating n the journey never ends ;) :)

: Goher is a Pakistani singer,musician and guitarist.

In the world of imagination
lives my poet, my inspiration

"Is he for real??" My heart asks...
the evidence are his poetic words!!

whenever i read "princess maggie"
i like it more and more...
for no one has ever written me a beautiful poem before

so thanking him through the best possible way...
i pray for him and say...
" walk the road of life my dear friend...
never fear, fight...fight till the end".
