JH Sayyar's Sonnets

438
Once sitting I fell in a fit and went into trance
I roamed in the streets and bazaars where I played
With the help of Muse wing I saw all in a glance,
Sitting in a lonely lawn I met an old cute maid
All alone in loneliness living with sole solitude,
I saw here and there nothing but some fallen trees
Birds and beats, men and women all were mute
The sun rises anon looking at it my soul does freeze
All have changed time and space remains the same
The images stored in our memories never, never fade
Time:  an untamed horse, more and harder to tame
Time through water, air, fire and earth easily wade

Time just leaves the images behind on our mind screen
Time steals beauty, youth and age but in mind still green
