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…

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

Rio de Janeiro – the beautiful and the magnificent

Beauty without an end
Heavenly send
Life never bore
Limbs happily sore
excitement in the air
Rio and its flair

Whenever humankind found some of the most picturesque beaches, mostly they have created some amazing resorts around them. However when one of the world most amazing beaches were found in Brazil, they had other ideas. They created one of the most picturesque city. When I visited Rio for first time, I was completely mesmerised by it. Here is my humble salute to the city with my very ordinary photography. Enjoy.

Birthplace (Rural Sindh)

desert with
its mystery lanes,
absolutely
stunning planes

People welcoming,
rural scene
million times
I have been

it is still refreshing
earth talks to me
telling all the tales
who succeeded and failed

what happened
to that buddy of mine
losing all hopes
still he shined

life, it travails
still around
walk in Bazaar,
smiles abound

everyone acknowledges
your being, presence
care and affection
no city ignorance

London, New York
Rio and Rome
all seen and measured
nothing like home

and I am home
it feels good
and it should!

Wish

Travel through time
to meet loved ones again
Only valued
When they depart
Look around
Why don’t we start
Normally late
Appreciate
dear darlings
close and away
from today
Leave in dirt
Grudges and hurt
Erase bad dreams
Shouting and screams
Rejuvenate compassion
Share the moments
Love and passion
Before it’s too late
the journey ends
the sun is set
Bones become dust
Love, we must!!

Commute

One short journey, two thoughts…

1. Silly one first
Train train go away
Come again another day
Heart just wants to stay
No hard toil, just pure play

2. Slightly pensive one –
When the journey commences
we look behind
find nothing but
dust of our thoughts
hardship we brought
by thinking too much
not acting enough
before the moment has passed
