Low tide

Water disappeared
in distance
acting strange
boat was sad
So much for love
Some stories
never change

Return to Saigon

Defeated, lost
Nearly killed
ego destroyed
Courage fried
vanity is the enemy
not the Củ Chi tunnel man
locate sensibility
find nobility
before annihilation

Here are few humble shots from the glorious Ho Chi Minh City – Vietnam, the city has expanded, modernised immensely in the last ten years that architecturally it is unrecognisable from the past. However the soul of the city is very much alive with amazing evenings, smiling welcoming people and humbleness in its core. So it is my kind of city 🙂

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.

Disposable affection

Different takes
in matters of heart
where to finish
how to start
when we start
all colours bright
a beaming smile
heart’s delight
time passes
passion loses charm
ignoring each other
inner harm
distinct together
happy alone
whatever was love
forever gone

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

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