It’s time

When the time is up
let me see your face
touch your lips
listen to your heart
last breath release
love will increase
soul will not cease
death in absolute peace

Four friends and an octopus

Four little Lily pads
Went to the sea
Want to see
Her Majesty

Unending waters
Shores not known
Fables and tales
Of the days bygone

As they got near
their hearts filled with fear
The mighty sea
was showing its colours

winds strong, waves flow
strong tides, high brow
At the bay, out of their way
lived the kind Octopus
Saw these novices

Unable to move
Unable to enjoy
The turquoise blue
Ocean glue

Beautiful sun
Or have any fun
Calmed them down
By singing a song

Let them drink
Something strong
Mood restored
Fear no more

They went in
Lagoon grinned
Met the wise coral
Heard from her
Ethics and morals

Eel came around
Electricity abound
Charged their hearts
Journey restarts

it was time to go
Back to their pond
Pads truly happy
Wanted octopus along

For him to see
Beautiful world
beyond this sea
He came by
Thoroughly enjoyed

The tranquility
Life quality
Of calmer waters
And smaller beings
No adventure of the sea
Just contentment and glee

Cross mannequin

Why don’t you talk
Why don’t you listen
Why don’t you care
That is not so fair
Stop looking at your phone
Please listen to my moan
Everyday it is something else
Could be work, hard sells
Or this eternal sitting still
Life so boring, grinding mill
Time doesn’t pass, time kills
I know, you have your bills
Friendly chats, business skills
Here is a request, a beg from me
Just move me a little everyday
Give me a hug, something nice to say
Don’t run away, please stay
Will make me happy, make me gay
Say and say, all you secrets to me,
I am safe, all the way

Billboard of life

Needs few more posters
oversold events
cheerful pants
cheap scents
anger vents

Life has been fair
to anyone but me
burn this city
and the next one

once that is done
somehow all will resolve
on my life’s wall
wishful thinker

unintentional tinker
there is more to life
then few moments of gust
joy, passion and lust

find in simple things
chasing classifieds
who lived and died
will never fulfil
soul’s unpaid bill

come close to Divine
there is a fine line
sinner and saint
rebel and repent

all deeds borrowed
no kindness lent
life’s rent, will be paid
when this billboard
has pink flowers

Cinderella

danced few moments
fate beckoning
knowledge of mutual existence
Hope reckoning

floating to
the seventh heaven
eternity, sudden
cruel awakening

I won’t refuse you
into my heart
I have your thought
I beg you, please reveal

I never want to lose you
Into world wilderness
Jungle of unrecognised
Unknown faces

Undetermined bases
With no traces
All I have got
some shoe laces

and sweet memory of you
Not sure, how true
losing my mind
a searching insane

every road, each lane
calling your name
was that your name
or my day dream

Before I lose all
not a single thought
remains whole
Come back

your sole and my soul
await you, eagerly
yours truly

the Masjid which defines the city – Abu Dhabi

When real crescent meets
the fake one,
a dried lake one
made of glittering gold,
thousand merchants sold
It smiles and says
Billion dollars and this
Divine is pleased
not with spent money
how funny, are Sapiens’ deeds

I was in Abu Dhabi few days ago. People know the city for its oil wealth and F1 racing! I will know it for its truly majestic mosque. Here are few shots…

Pipework to heaven

scaling inch by inch
slowly, gradually, moving
since I reached the nadir
the only way is up
these helping angel hands
extending beyond their reach
Lord could impeach
them for my mortal sins
kindness sometimes comes
from least unexpected places
soft, smiling, gentle faces
and I am deeply thankful
