On a Clear Day – A poem by HUR


HUR – a reluctant poet in Islamabad – has sent a lovely poem. It was left as a comment on a post but deserves to be highlighted and posted as a stand alone object of beauty…


On a clear day
When puddles run smooth
Umbrellas sit home
People wear white
And do not stain
Throughout the day,
You cloud my mind.

On a clear day
I do not fail
To carry this pain
Of rain, of lightening seeking
Heart of things,
Of trees afire
In rain, in vain.

On a clear day
You seldom smile
Or wink bemused.
You wait for clouds
And gales of hail
To play with scheme of
Things and me
On a dead clear day.

HUR, February 2007

  1. I would love to have urdu rendering of the poem, if it were written originally in that language.

  2. i liked it-
    simple , but wasn’t very powerful-
    very subtle

    i would love to have more of poems—
