Adayat

-Madhuri Lalwani, I Year B.A. English

adayat: (urdu) to go meet someone when they are facing troubling times.

I wouldn’t deceive you
Oh why’d I?
If this was the war field
and the last place you could meet,
we’d make it forget even a skirmish.
Flowers will bloom in this vicinity.
Your words put
the purpose of this battleground to shame.
How many grasslands as this one
are entitled to your name?
So much that nature secretly bows
to your beauty, every now and then.
