Sympathy by Labeeqa Baneen - Pakistan
In times of sorrow, when tears do flow,
A gentle hand, a heart aglow.
With empathy's touch, we lend an ear,
To soothe the pain, to show we're near.
Through troubled waters, we softly tread,
Walking alongside, no words unsaid.
A comforting presence, a soothing sound,
In sympathy's embrace, solace is found...Read More Comment(s) 2

A Miracle! by Narjis Raza - Pakistan
Miracle, oh miracle, so rare and divine,
A moment of wonder that makes our hearts shine,
It appears when we least expect it to be,
A gift from the heavens, for all to see.
The magic of life, the wonders of nature,
The beauty of love, the power of nurture,
All around us, these miracles abound,
In the smallest detail, they can be found.

Or the first ray of sun after a dark, stormy night,

And the Hamlet in me take
The most unwise decisions,
The most foul resolves...Read More Comment(s) 2

Of unattended desires,
Oh ! But her dazzling eyes,
For which he lives, for which he dies,
Yet, as time goes,
The youth fades and the glow diminishes,
If she asks,
He smiles it off...Read More Comment(s) 0

Lahore Canal Bank Road by Sufia Humayun - Pakistan
Sprouting leaves, rustle and stir with the wind,
The swishing wind of May.
That comes like gale at night
Leaving without a trace for the day.
Golden streaks flicker, as the wind betrays,
On the water moving statically
The trees bending on the water in obedience for ages...Read More Comment(s) 0
