Existence

Happiness could do us a favour
Instead it burns in flames
Whatever we have done to ourselves
Emotions stare, hide in shame
Pride look at us in disdain
There is no one else to blame
A simple smile is enough of a proof
Existence we can claim
But don’t. Torture is required
Assassinations, murder is required
Screams, nightmares,
Obscene materialistic
Hallucinations are required
When will we learn!20140529-090530 am-32730165.jpg

Greetings

I am nearly dearly here
Another beautiful day
Another amazing morn
Sapiens will wake up
New ideas will be born
Trees, flowers, orchids
Gardens will be adorned
Just for a moment
When you have one
Think life without me
Tell me what you see
winter, spring, summer or fall
morning run or evening ball,
flower beds, trees so tall,
bird tweets and cockerel call,
Nothing?…you say nothing at all

Funeral of the last butterfly

I was invited
to the funeral
of the last butterfly
All the birds were there
Insects made a wreath
Queen bee sung a melancholy
Grief too great to bear
Colours already left
Now the last butterfly gone
Everyone felt so lonely
Earthlings were alone
Far away in the sky
a thunder cloud
lightning strike,
a Phoenix flew in
Tears in its eyes,
sprayed on butterfly wings
Butterfly come to life
In all our hearts
Light of her soul
removed despair
Humanity wake up
When would you care
Planet is for all
We have to share
Might won’t work
win if we dare
Extinction of plants
Insects, animals all admire
Greenery in gardens
Fields and shire
Everything could go
If we don’t spare
Consume less,
Don’t scare
Nature, heavens
Water, our own air
Wind may blow
So does rain
Last butterfly
may flutter again
I wish, hope and pray

Dangle

Work, work, work
Carriage with cages
Dangling along for wages
A hard day ahead
I work till I am dead
Still that is not enough

Rosary

Wine and prayer mixes
Destiny declares,
fate fixes
heart colour changes,
undermine jinxes
thoughts repeated
in fours and sixes
Till redemption

Here is a more rebellious thought:

Tasbeeh
Allah Hu, Allah hu
Haq
Allah Hu, Allah hu
Qalander declares
Breaking his beads
Dancing on his feet
Control not seen
for miles
Rosaries, prayers
Nothing sedate
My lord my mate
Fill my heart
With love
Remove hate
These fools with beards
Long robes, black or white
crosses, rosaries in their hands
They repeat and pretend
You belong to them
Rest of us be ashamed
for our sins and our deeds
In young minds and hearts
hatred they seed
Hypocrisy they lead
Nothing they concede
Such closed hearts
Where to end
Where to start
Qalandar, the mad
Uncontrollable
dancing
Darwish I follow
Rest is just a game
Shallow and hollow
Allah hu, Allah hu
Haq
Allah hu, Allah hu
