From the valley of Kashmir

From the valley of Kashmir

A Poem by zubia

From a beautiful valley called Kashmir I hail.
I wake up to the mist and breeze at home;
But as I open the window to breathe fresh,
I smell the smoke from the fire all round,
Ignited by those sitting on the throne.

I sit by the Jhelum to heal my heart;
I watch the river flow and silently depart.
I stare at the water that carries tales unknown,
of the bloodshed, the terror, the perished souls,
Known to those sitting on the throne.

I sit under a pine tree, long and dense;
where the beauty of meadows has secrets to tell;
The land has the seeds of conspiracy sown,
of plots for the people yet not known,
woven by those sitting on the throne.

This poem brought tears in my eyes while I was reading this the face of those innocent children flashed before my eyes when I went to Kashmir. I feel most unhappy that such a place like kashmir (I find no adjectives suitable to express the beauty of Kashmir) is under such terror, I hope that one day it will earn all the freedom and name it yearns for. I respect your emotions and the beauty you've described is simply outstanding.

"From the Valley of Kashmir"
Zubia,
Plots are continually waging and we are simply left to try to pick up any good we can within its midst. The Name Kashmir bears an exotic and mysterious tang. Within its theme the pain of powerful people whom do not have the people's ear is really sad. The everyday person does not hold the same things dear which the powerful and misled dok, what a different moral mindset!
Beautiful poem
Blessings,
Kathy

You have written a great poem about your beautiful but troubled land. We had the fortune to visit and travel about Kashmir when it was more peaceful. It is true that it politics and power going back many years that is behind the unrest.
Well done for sharing your thoughts.
Regards,
Alan
