love orphan and ishâ€™q yateem – poem[s] by Temporal
Temporal is a fine trancreative (a term invented by Temporal himself) poet. The ability to write and translate in multiple languages is a unique gift, to say the least.
I had read love orphan when it was posted last week. After reading it again today, I thought it would be great to post it here.
It has a strange meter, a sombre mood and pace – above all, it cascades and changes its direction several times before reaching the climactic trinity of forlornness. In this condition of “threeness”, love suffers with the lovers….
