Telepathy by Hafsa Mumtaz

Hafsa Mumtaz | August 30th, 2021 | poetry | 6 Comments


the prismatic landscape ensnared in
miniature aquatic world – aeolian
songs of soughs whistles and
undertones dabbing the chlorophyll
faces. tender splashes articulate
mirth of life. the ethereal planes over
the azure sky darkening to sapphire
in the corners, like shades in a
blush-on kit. the canals of my ears
overflow with a motley soundscape –
blues, symphonies of pitter-patter,
blessings of thirsty birds, petrichor
oozing from the veins of the
dehydrated soil, gamboling children
celebrating a day off from school in
rustic areas. I converse with these
pearlescent that enrapture the
windowpanes. they narrate an
auspicious folklore of Romeo and
Juliet, a sermon on divinity of Self,
a myth of metamorphosing into
pearls, a tragedy that these bulbous
forms soaked the eyes of the hurt,
a satori of shifting the polysemy of
thought dimensions, a translation of
Nature’s rhapsody, a billet-doux to
the Phoenix in the your pain-sodden
eyes. like the vertices of a diamond
is the lexicon of these drops of ecstasy
descending from flambé porcelain of
electrons glistening every now
and then. to fáilte my heart opens like
the frontispiece of heaven, like the
spaces in my poetry, like the mouth of
an oyster. my soul rejoices like an
Anodite; I feel the mana in these
drops; I feel my God communicating
with me in these alphabets of water; I
gaze and muse, and say, ‘Alhamdulillah’*.

Translation Glossary:
*Praise be to Allah
