Shahensha-e-Ghazal

grief
and melancholy
shivers painlessly,
sounds of separation
all so passive
filled with joy of
desert sounds,
words ride on
waves of perfection
thundering in the heart.

The plainness
envelopes intricate
reaching out
your ghazals
shall never die.


Mehdi Hassan was the epitome of light classical. His voice intricately captured the nuances of flowing words.
