Peace – A poem by Ata Khan

Peace – A poem by Ata Khan

The angel of death
in shock and awe
stands, perplexed…

While terrorized,
hysterically, a dog
looks around,
limping
falling
and, rising
again …

Bodies burning
turning coal
thick,
blackened
ghostlike smoke
unceasingly fueled
on flesh and
bone…

A village
last night
in ashen-ed dust
Children,
in park?
No signs of life
Yet, no vultures in sight
but the smoke …

Mankind
Hail to you
Does peace prevail?
Yes,in carnage
the Eternal
Peace…

Ata Khan

Very Good Friend. Who inspired me to be more than what I am. I will be for ever greatful to him. (Tajwali Khan)
