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)

Display

Affection passionately shown
Shame left alone
Happiness reflected
Jealousy deflected

Pains, aches hidden
frowns get ridden
Envy deflated
Modesty inflated

Destiny reckoned
Knowledge beaconed
Lust utterly weakened
Friends tightly hugged
Experiences pursued rugged

Family immensely loved,
Lovers intimately kissed
deceased dearly missed
Life enjoyably passed
it will not last, for long

Amid thousand smiles

smiling thousand faces
scintillating colours,
heart races

don’t waste a moment
on the longest day
in million years

kiss a beautiful
gorgeous stranger,
show no fear

disregard rules,
let go of what
you hold dear

cheek to cheek,
lips to lips,
sugar sips, honey dips,

dive in the vast
ocean of joy
in shoes without laces

you are amid
smiling thousand faces
heart races, then stops!

Urn dissected

found world’s wealth
saw nature’s health
former was way too much
latter’s luck was not such
cry and weep with hollies
sapiens and their follies
