Silence of a night

Silence of a dark night
deafening for the soul
Looking towards redemption
Stories untold

Life is but a prism
Colours separating from the seams
Dark ones are quiet
Light ones scream

May be we are prisoners
our small deeds
Considered crimes
Punishable indeed

As the night passes
we are left without words
travelling long distances
returning where we stood
the dawn appears at last
Time to wear our masks

One more London place

roaming aimlessly,
clicking shamelessly
carefree and serene
a midday scene
trying to ignore
the storm in store
blood and gore
that has become
our world
that much intolerance
death and violence
children not spared
elderly not cared
humanity badly fared
attack and revenge
mindless avenge
Peshawar is charred
Parisiens life scarred
innocent blood
spilled and flood
the gates of heaven
tears trickle down
resolve breakdown
no optimism trace
deepening sorrow I face
in the false serenity,
eerie calmness
of one more London place

Stairs in life

one, two, three
soon be thirty three
then forty three,
and sixty three

finally downwards
one two three
just that, there you lay
nothing in hand

a simple, white cloth
and a silent you
that moment so true
is so near, so far

depends what you do
tomorrow and day after
live and laughter
love and laughter

angel, or demon
ordinary human
baron grand trade
intellect high grade

courage or afraid
fighting on bread
master or a maid
good or really bad

it is upto you
whatever you do
pulse! still pulsating
stairs! are waiting

Rhymes without reason

How green is your green?
that hedge being preen
ocean water so serene
how blue is your blue?
I will give you a clue
that bird just flew
look at the colour
its all a blur
insinuating a slur
how pink is your white?
arctic on a summer night
seagull on a flight
of fanciful dream
how yellow is your cream?
naked glare of a beam
nothing what it seems
how black is your black?
starry night in a lake
sanity been forsake
touching you as I lean
how green is your green?

Turbulecstasy

Air exudes
it’s time to fly
Up and up
in the sky

territories to explore
heart to implore
trysts in greens
Emotions unseen

words implying
fractured meaning
Souls in need
desperate cleaning

Altitude silence
Blue sky violence
Colours pushing limits
Impatient yearnings
Intellect earnings

Thoughts imploding
Mind exploding
infinite impossibilities
No desire to land

Flight extends
Life acquires
moment sublime
beyond time

Effort and applause

Crafted with sweat and blood
took seven hundred twenty days
dragged to strange ways
there it lays, reflecting

artistry, craftsmanship
blacksmithing, brush strokes
most desired masterpiece
breath’s final release

admired, smiled and spitted on
admittedly, lately
people have varying taste
some take ages to decide
what they adore, abhor
others in momentary haste,

driven by greed, creed, breed
millions fail, few succeed,
there is nothing else to the deed,
has to be done, by someone

let’s mocking cocking
crowds have their say
it is the ancient way,
how nature decides destiny

Reality

Another one of us has left
Day of reckoning, our end is near
will miss his voice, his deep thought
his soul will be missed, so his heart
scratches, punches, reality bites so hard,
immense grief struck, falling apart
the world will keep moving, show must go
a reminder has come, not long to go
