Call rises and rises
needs increase
to go beyond reality
zenith of probabilities

have the courage
to cross boundaries of possible
impossible, downright unimaginable
test humanity to extreme

lights ray beams
tear universe from seams
whatever was deem
to be, make it happen

raise the voice
Haq Unal Ho, it is only you
transcend frailty
fear, fragility, frugality of heart

seven darts, all piercing through
blood dripping too but call rises
and rises, and rises, and rises
until nothing is left, just the call

to what mostly mattered,
heart fully catered
and soul ascend to
beyond imagination

Smile is a doorway to the soul

Let others in, welcoming happy hearts
Life, a game of slow motion darts
Some you hit, Bulls eye joy,
Others your miss, emotions coy
Hiding away from what you’ve become
Adopt, adapt and immerse in some
And smile, for a while, until death dials
 

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

Pistachios

your smell remind of past
few decades ago I lost
when walking through wood
you put your hand in pocket
remove watch locket,
there they were
dry fruits, sweets,
my good behaviour treat
few handed over
for today’s walk
curiosity talks
Why, what, how, when
Air, Earth, snow and rain
Memory lane, says stop
Let the past vanish, suddenly drop
as when I remember I cry in pain
why time never comes back again
sometimes you really want it to
perhaps in few years you take the mettle,
impart what was given as a gift
be the old sage, destiny’s lift
fill pockets with sweet, savoury treats
walk with young on summer retreats

saving humanity
from evil
naive insanity
shelter is required
from within
deep darkness acquired
murder, rape, genocide
innocents terrified
millions have died
devices owned, loaned
to each other, destroying further
womb of the mother
as if there is another
Earth! kindness in dearth
ruthlessness in plenty
guilty without guilt
blood has been bled
necks have been slit
in the name of
innocent, pure humanity,
a fake blue amulet
to protect such insanity
a cry, screams reaching sky
madly probing, again and again, why!

Soft toes illuminating steps

certainity is
never granted
your steps have worth
on this earth
search, lurch
towards the light
that is I
don’ t be shy
I am found
in universe’s sound
in an apple round
here, here,
and here abound
everywhere
anywhere
you look
every step you took
I touched that
soft beautiful toe
desire you show
made me part of you
