JH Sayyar's Sonnets

388
When I close my eyes I see three shadows,
Walking before me their heads bowing down,
Like swans flying in the sky swiftly in the rows,
Shining light from the eyes wearing red gown,
Lie was in black dress peeping like a flower,
Doubt was in pale garb, hiding its black face,
Truth was in white dress with heavenly power,
On a white horse wearing a crown with grace,
Lie and truth shine like moon on the azure sky,
Doubt like the misty moon unseen for the eyes,
Riding hiding the face sitting on the back of lie,
Watching truth flying weeping with bitter cries

No brawl on earth but doubts in human brain,
Making blind man’s eyes like a preyed crane
