Self indulgence – bear with me :-)

Why lie low
go with the flow
never let it go
a painting
a brush
evening bleakness
morning rush
early youth
late crush
curtains
light
blindness
sight
underground
in flight
on the surface
from a height
shooting stars
phoney wars
new planes
vintage cars
never stop
clicking shots
that’s what
you’ve got
rest, ignore
the whole lot

Humanity – the book

The current civilisation of Human species has come a long way in the last five thousand years. The technology is mesmerising, architecture astounding and knowledge is touching nebulae and far flung galaxies. Our values however are perhaps not showing same level of progress. There is continuous war and hunger. Inequality is increasing every moment, pursuit of wealth has made most of us blind from the misery of our brethren living just few moments away from us. Environment is a concern for the tree hugging minority only. Destruction of forests, extinctions of wildlife species and increasing temperatures globally is a commonality not even worthy of daily news anymore. This age of individuality and trying to live life through social media has made our planet more ignorant, less tolerant and a troll infested realm. I hope, wish and pray that some of these terrible trends will reverse in the not so distant future and humanity snaps out of this current craze of abominable behaviour. This short book of poems and images try to highlight my humble observations in an abstract setting.

I will try to spread this message of compassion and equality until the time is upon me. Here is the latest instalment in the form of a book at IBOOks store (free)

Humanity

Hands

How much you have seen
Where have you been
What have you done
What have you won
Bare hands, hard work
Clearing cleaning others dirt
No amount in pension
no car no mansion
Just me and my brush
Nothing urgent no rush
All my dreams got crushed
Long long time ago

Improbable

Upside down chairs in the air
an aspiring leader, young, with flair
not doing it for power, just for people he cares
a good hard stare, some strange improbabilities

Deadwood

Life has passed
nothing to show
spending last days
vegetative state
In early years
should have stayed late
made people laugh
changed my fate
now my dear
It’s too late

Why

Centuries passed
stood my ground
generations born
Kings sworn
suffered all seasons
and more, before
butchered
slaughtered
was cut down
roots blown
on a piece of land
you ‘own’
