​The Midnight Song.

In the reddish climaxes of the afternoon 

Will soon walk down in rushing silence 

In dull colour will leave by with gloomy stillness 

The stars will wake up with bright smiles 

The moonlight will dance in breezing 

Watching the beautiful glide of the swans 

The midnight hawks will be crooning the memories  

From far tabernacle of the noon remembrances   

The wind’s rhythm scuds the birds soft feather 

The song of the elusive memories clouds the eyes

They eyes tongue is too cloudy that speaks in tears

The face runs pale singing the midnight song 

The reddish noon shoos & the night bursts 

The restless wind whispers the gloomy voices groaning  

It reminds & it rewinds the memories with sad sighing  

Restlessly, I swaying in silence –

my arms need you

My eyes are stormed by want –

you come on & heal me

Abdul Samad Haidari is a poet, writer, teacher and a former freelance journalist, currently residing in Indonesia as a stateless refugee. He is the author of The Red Ribbon He fled his home country at the age of seven and grew up wandering in Pakistan and Iran as a child refugee, and was separated from his family for the majority of his childhood. For two years, at the age of eight and nine, he was forced into child labour in the construction industry in Iran. In contrast, Pakistan offered refugees like him the opportunity to study and work. This education and work experience culminated in Abdul teaching computer studies and English language courses at the Intel Computer Center and Pak Oxford Professionals. After the collapse of the Taliban government, Abdul returned to Afghanistan thinking that the security situation had improved, and that he could take part in the reconstruction of his war-torn country. With this in mind, Abdul served as a freelance journalist and humanitarian aid-worker in areas of the country that remained dangerous to civilians because of the influence of terrorist groups. Abdul served with the Norwegian refugee council (NRC), ActionAid Afghanistan, Daily Outlook Afghanistan group of newspapers, and The Daily Afghanistan Express. As a freelance journalist, Abdul wrote articles and editorials about on-the-ground realities, which were then circulated widely. These had a particular focus on women and children’s rights, corruption, transparency and accountability in government, warlords and terrorist groups’ actions and the systematic persecution of minority groups in both Afghanistan and Pakistan.
