EIFFEL TOWER PARIS . EVENING TIME VIEWS

I am tempted to add lines from Urdu Poet Ali sardar jafri's poem to this photo ...

Saheef e Qaaynaat
( The sacred Text of this Universe )


Ye do varaq hain,
Zameen aur Aasmaan jin par
Saheef e Qaaynaat Tehreer Ho Rahaa Hai
Fasaana Hasti Ka Neistee ka
Fasaana neki ka aur Badhee ka ,
Fasaana Zulmat Ka Roshini ka ,
Saheef e Qaaynaat Tehreer Ho Rahaa hai …

Jo Kal Kali Thhii
Vo Aaj Gul Hai
Jo aaj Gul Hai
Vo Kal samar hai

Har Eik shai Waqt ki hawaaon ki Zadd pe
Eik Shamm e Rehguzar hai ..
Jo Bujh Rahee hai
Jo Jal Rahee hai
Vujood par Naaz kar Rahee hai

( Ali Sardar Jafri )

My simple English rendering of these lines goes as under …

These are just two pages ,
The sky and the Earth,
Upon these two pages ,
A sacred Text of this Universe is being written.
A story of existence and non existence ,
A story of good and evil ,
A story of darkness and Illumination ,
The sacred Text of this universe is being written.

Flower Buds of yesterday have bloomed into full size flowers today ,
Today’s flowers shall be tomorrow’s Fruit .

Like a lamp kept on pathways ,
Every object is destined to face trials of the winds of time.
A lamp that keeps dimming ,
A lamp that keeps glowing ,
A lamp that feels proud of its existence …
