the heart sends many questions to the stars on sullen wings
sometimes a subtle answer pulses back on silent wings

i’ve heard that when you stretch your naked arms in quiet prayer
your flesh is turned to whispers sent to god on silken wings

benevolence has painted vivid portraits full of life
a father’s love is color for the brush’s swirling wings

your words will leave an imprint that will echo in the halls
where freedom dances tongue to tongue on bright desultory wings

the poet shares the human fate of joining dust and ash
yet phoenix-like his legacy may fan with solar wings

although the dreamer feels estranged among the world of men
you never were a stranger to the ones with silver wings

like you zahhar has longed to touch what language can’t define
a place beyond the shadow-fall of dark and solemn wings
