JH Sayyar's Sonnets

410
Life: Like moving water of azure seven seas,
Rest is unknown to the motion day and night,
The huge creatures of water our life increase,
Motion within the motion changes world might,
Life nothing but motion of elements in frame,
Dead images come like dead things out of sea
Pure images stay in mind for immortal fame,
Dead images floating useless like a hollow tree
Yea! Today’s images turn into a stagnant pool,
Its foul smell polluting fresh images of the brain,
I hear in my vision, sex enthralled souls’ Yule,
Fresh images dead when men sex follow to gain

Soul motion is spinning around sex and wealth,
Ah, bit by bit curtailing life day and night health
