mirage / saraab

image courtesy google

seeing things
highway mirage
kuch muktahlif nahin
sarab e zindagi say

long winding roads alternating
iqbal bano and zia mohyeddin 

salamanca and beyond
drizzle, rain, sun alternating

as the sky cleared 
i said now we will make speed
words uttered too soon

the sky turned black
lighting flashed and
visibility dropped to 30 feet
the speed from 100 to 30

stop, stop right here
it is madness to drive

i can't, i can't
see the road line
see the flasher
of the car ahead?

so in blinding rain
we drove on

what did the bard say
about all's well that...
