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

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

Fatal attraction – Venice

Beautiful angels, here I am
One of you has my name
Wrapped in ashen parchment
Peacefully put in a frame
lungs unable to breath,
body floating with a wreath
death in a beautiful seaside
soul already in paradise
boats carry me far,
my beloved is north star
and she is waiting

Here is my humble effort to capture the intense beauty and sheer gorgeousness of city of wonders – Venice

It’s a wonderful world

amazement
wonder
pure jealousy
you are unique too
Just dig a little deeper
get those emotions
sense of solitude out
reveal true beauty
which will blossom
Life around you
that much recognition
inspiration gets ignition
fire of colour
will burn all bridges
to land ordinary
take a ferry
get to the dock
where fame, fortune waiting
in that moment pulsating
ignore them, move on
and embrace true greatness
being no one
And everyone
at the same time
pennies, dimes
will follow, stop being hollow
kiss million colours orchid
let her colours subsume
every pore of you
exhumes long dead
creativity
ingenuity
my tinker bell
claim what is yours
throne of immortality
through spreading
love, passion, emotion
in a extra ordinary way
every ordinary day
universe will remember
that scent, for eons
and the words
I was here
yes indeed
I was here
etched on the fabric
of time and tide
floating, hailing, calling
all travellers of unknown lands
showing existence, persistence
of beautiful you
