Granddaughter and Other Poems
By Faheem Jawaid

February 9, 2013


My granddaughter of 1 & 1/2

Is a true living doll

Like no other in the world

When she laughs

Flowers of my garden gaze

When she walks

The soft, gentle breeze stops

When she plays

The birds dance and sing

Whatever she wears

Soft, silky, glossy dress

Become invaluable, precious

She is a true living-doll

Came to our world

To fill the space, emptiness

Of our existence.


Another Day
My heart was filled

With shimmering fireflies;

When I found myself

In the morning alive. 


Death Rattle
(A sound sometimes heard in the throat of a dying person)

What did you build?

What did you keep?

Just, let me see!!!


In heavy rainwater

Bathing elevated trees

High-minded mountains;

On a branch of Eucalyptus

Sitting and stretching its wings

A fully drenched pink bird;

The blue brown skies

Emerging from its feathers

The time standing still.



Somebody is watching

Beyond the windows

"Grand daughter" is amazing.A fitting tribute to the innocence of Sumayya. The feelings of sheer love and empathy from grand father towards his lovely grand daughter.
Another day is perfect thanksgiving to the lord of the worlds for giving life after mini-death(sleep)
Death rattle is a reminder to reflect upon death , a reality, a moment of reckoning which every one of us will encounter.
Panorama is well articulated thoughts appreciating the pure nature, a bounty from the Almighty which we tend to take for granted in our busy lives.
Faheem Jawaid's writings are pure entertainment for intellectual minds in the present time where the art of writing is shrinking.
We expect more such wonderful works from him.

Sumayya is such a pretty living doll that her grand father could not resist himself from writing a pretty poem on her. Love to Sumayya and regards to Faheem Jawaid.

Death Rattle is a masterpiece. One can only imagine it and by the time you are experiencing it...game's over. No more tales to tell about the feeling then

Good collection of poems from Faheem Jawaid posted on Daijiworld. Grand daughter is just sweet, cute and seems to have come straight from heart. May Allah bless her. Another Day and Panorama are sheer pieces of art. Death rattle and Fear are scary to me. Is the photo of that pretty girl the grand daughter of Mr.Faheem Jawaid?

Great poems of Faheem Jawaid, particularly about his grand daughter was very sweet, cute and impressive. The real feelings of a grand father were portrayed in the form of a poem. God bless his grand daughter.
