GENESIS, a poem written by Dr. Nikhat Bano at



written by: Dr. Nikhat Bano


O Sommelier!
Who’s she in view? Sitting pretty there;
I see nothing as far as I can see, but her.

It’s become
a colossal question for me, now;
What should I believe and what should I avoid?

Counsel me,
if I accept that entity as a living being or not?
Or brush aside admitting that, I sleepwalked.

This elixir
has a far reaching tremor;
Help me come out of this fleeting pleasure.

I swear!
I’ve spent my life attending your revelries,
never witnessed such a winsome artistry.

O Sommelier!
Will remain obliged to you for this moment;
She’s like my genesis after years of torment.
