Early-Waking Grievers

I was sleeping, and being comforted

by a cool breeze, when suddenly a gray dove

from the thicket sang and sobbed with longing,

and reminded me of my own passion.

I had been away from my own soul so long,

So late-sleeping, but that dove’s crying

woke me and made me cry. Praise

to all early-waking grievers!

About samina iqbal

I am a free lance writer who loves to write on social issues in particular. I am a house wife and my husband Dr. Shams Iqbal offers all the support and encouragement so that I can pursue my passion for authorship and other cause which is dear to me. My lifelong mission in life is to offer my support for the police officers who need to be supported and protected by general public like us. My inspiration to do this comes from my personal experiences of some of the greatest police officers whom I have witnessed do great deeds for the good of humanity. I am so inspired and fascinated to support this law enforcement group. On the other hand I like music, movies specially classics, I am a fashion geek, English and American literature are my passions.
