The Miniature Woman - Poem by Nazim Hikmet

The Blue-Eyed Giant, the Miniature Woman
and the Honeysuckle

He was a blue-eyed giant,
He loved a miniature woman.
The woman's dream was of a miniature house
with a garden where honeysuckle grows
in a riot of colours
that sort of house.

The giant loved like a giant,
and his hands were used to such big things
that the giant could not
make the building,
could not knock on the door
of the garden where the honeysuckle grows
in a riot of colours
at that house.

He was a blue-eyed giant,
he loved a miniature woman,
a mini miniature woman.
The woman was hungry for comfort
and tired of the giant's long strides.
And bye bye off she went to the embraces of a rich dwarf with a garden where the honeysuckle grows
in a riot of colours
that sort of house.

Now the blue-eyed giant realizes,
a giant isn't even a graveyard for love:
in the garden where the honeysuckle grows
in a riot of colours
that sort of house...

two giants, an idiot, a dwarf,

Mere To Muqadar Men sirf Teri Yaad Hai.

Tu Jis Ka Muqadar Hai Usay Zindagi Mubarik,

Mil mil ke bicharrna mujhe accha nahi lagta
Per tum ko bhi paane ka raasta nahi milta

Tere khalo

Uske Roone Ki Waja Kia Thi,
Mein Ne To Bas Itna Pooch

Aqal Ne Aik Din Ye Dil Se Kaha
Bhoole Bhatke Ki Rahnuma Hun Main

One day reason said to the hear

Gile Shikwe Mita Kar Muskurao Eid Ka Din Hai
Purani Ranjisho Ko Bhool Jao Eid Ka Din Hai
