Poetry Break: Anwer Ghani: Rabbits Two Drops of Ink


A Mostly White Rabbit


I am a sad rabbit but inside me there is a big white flower. This black world has broken my legs, but I can’t hate it because my mother has planted a white flower in my heart. Yes, I am a white rabbit with a broken leg, and all these big flowers are just a short story of my hidden love. You can see it; you can smell its fragrance, and you also can see my broken leg.


A Smiling Rabbit


It is very strange that I can’t do anything but smile. You know; I am the smiling rabbit and if you rummage my pocket you won’t find just orange. Look at my hand; it is warm and may look at my face; it is a shadow. When the morning sees my eyes, it gets to shine smile, but when the evening touches my heart, it will see my hidden wound. Yes, it is me; the very smiling rabbit of the wasteland where everything is a shadow even my smile.


A Flying Rabbit


We have a small garden, and a small rabbit always wears his wings, flying with delight; at morning and at evening, but these black voices had stolen his lovely wing so I am now a flying rabbit without wings. You can’t imagine the deep sorry of a flying rabbit without wings. Someday you will remember me and you will know that your hidden hand has stolen my wing and you will know the size of my lost love and my lost flying.
