Grounded, a poem by Nafisa Shabbir at
Nikola Ancevski



written by: Nafisa Shabbir


A sea of white clouds
With a little grey sometimes
Meet your jaded eyes
And fill you with delight

In between the clouds
A peep of the sun is seen
And you can see some homesteads
If your sight is really keen

When the plane takes off, I feel
A wish to soar high too
Nothing calms me more
Than a glimpse of the sea so blue

But I take full care to see
That my roots remain earth-bound
For though my thoughts may fly
My feet are still on the ground.
