Two Poems ~ Mohammed Jamil

HAIKU


The orange sunrise
lifts the veil of Night and wakes
Day from it's slumber.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The warning of the dead

The dead whisper and warn the living
longing for what once belonged to them.

However...

The living pay no heed
to the warnings
and they live their lives
making the same mistake
as their predecessors
continuing the cycle
of life and death.
