Two Poems ~ Waseem Asmal

Tanka

A bright burning flame
glows through the darkness
and melts the icy cold
of the Winter's Night.


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


ROME

Rome, mighty and at the
height of its power,
ruling the whole world

but now...

Time has seeped into
the cracks and crevices of
the once mighty Rome
breaking it's walls
and leaving it crumbling in the dust.
