Rugs and riches – Abu Dhabi Sheik Zayed Masjid interiors

lamps, chandeliers
carpets of thousand colours
granite, marble tiles,
mother Earth riles
such expense
at whose cost
piercing million holes
extracting more and more
humanity living folklore
happily ever after

I have shown you through my humble lens the outside of the majestic Sheikh Zayed Masjid, let’s now see the colour of interiors and fascinating patterns. Absolutely amazing human creation. There is a bit more thought provoking poem at the top on how humanity is using earth treasures, it’s minerals, energy assuming this will last forever. Have we thought about sustainable solution for our future generations.

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…

Fanatic

I am a Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Jew
I am a Christian, Bhuddist, Pagan and few
I can be Sunni, Shia, Sufi too
Cathholic, Protestant can be true
I am what I am, what I will be
placed in my coffin people will see
from all the religions I just call
I am a Human above all

Without hope

Can we cope,
humanity’s panacea,
Soul’s pride,
heart’s ride,
Without, sweet Hope
Darkness will fall
Humanity won’t last
No one will know
how to end or to start,
Days will be long
Misery prolongs
Noons with no light
No end in sight
Falling down, no rope
Can we survive,
without hope
Depression abundantly kills
Sadness grills and grills
Sorrow refuses to leave
No faith, no believe,
Downhill life,
slippery slope
Will we ever arrive,
without hope
No furtherance in science
No trust, no reliance
Humanity without smiles
Just cries and riles
Anguish steadfastly gropes
happiness elopes,
without hope,
There is no hope
