    When poetry has legs !

    When poetry has legs
    Two winds and one air
    Comes down up to my stair
    Mournfully asks its self
    And run down into a large wall
    That my soul looks like standout wall
    It stands and never surrenders
    When hell comes over all
    Turned hot as if flickering ocean
    And spindling within rocks
    Hearing the sound of the tide
    Came close to a deserted place
    Nothing to see but the skies
    And the ground is small like a mouth of spoon
    One newborn sees the light
    Other is dead never has the tomb
    In a cemetery where he was born
    What should ask a gain?
    A flock of birds veiled the sun
    Once went back and once went on
    O, human, you are strange
    Among wolves always deceit
    Would eat your flesh and your bones
    And here my body flirts with my soul
    And my heart is expanded as a large world
    Picked up somewhere near crossroads
    By a woman who hanged herself

    I really enjoyed this poem, Mohammad.
