Humans’ Rain-Nigar Arif

Here is the city,

people break out and leave…

Here are the snows and rains,

washing their footprints…

Even the sun shines in every morning,

Winds blow and sleek

Nothing can remove those ,

Nothing can be changed…

People soak up to its memory

from its pocky face.

They fetch their colors with themselves

keeping the city pale.

Everywhere is dull,

Everything turns to a grey tale.

People rain and rain falls from their eyes

in every single day

And those getting wet in the heart of this city

who can’t run away

Humans are raining cats and dogs,

Ambulances revolve like the umbrellas

under the sick drops…

Either the nights or the noons

wobble from their homes.

The whole world tumble from its place

and falls…

Day by day, week by week

Streets become empty

The roads, cafes see the end.

The shoulders of the heavy shops

are going to bend…

The huge buildings, the small houses

between the city’s arms

peeping out with fear at the naked depth

that idles in the villages, travels to the countries

Lonely trees are getting bored

The flowers, birds and meadows

from the dusty feet of this city

missing of the man

Who knows?

May be in their own languages

they even rail

this damn, teasing quarantine.

Now we know, mom

Cities and countries

can also catch the diseases…

What can i say?

Don’t worry,

everything will be okay.

There are hopes

that draw out till the hair of this city…

There are our dreams putting the hands to its forehead

to check the heat…

May be we found the best treatment, mom,

Love is the best engraftment

as you always said…
