Poetry Break: New York Smile by Anwer Ghani

Note: This poem is dedicated to my friends in New York in support of them in difficult circumstances due to the Corona pandemic. Click To Tweet




New York birds have always been singing so they appear constantly in my dreams. In her gardens, I can see the smiling flowers who lived life deeply; their arms open all the time and with love, with great love for comers. I did not visit New York nor smell its flowers, but I know everything about it, my heart told me about its intimate secrets. You cannot imagine its big heart. Yes, you cannot, but you know. I am a strange man coming from a forgotten land. From the south, so I always try to prove that my passport is clean because there are yellow winds stealing its smiles so it becomes grouchy. A smile means a lot, and love means a lot, so I will really go crazy when I see New York without a hug or a smile.
