The Human Hologram

Your head is arched, wavy lines and outward forces I stand here, counting the fissures on your lips, the circles around that eye callous boundaries of twin buzzing hands I can hear it emanate like an infant’s lost message ‘ the dormant conscience ‘ Falsely floating, an appendage to your […]

The Dream Of The People

The dream of the people isn’t nuclear world of disaster, meltdown and contamination, nor are mad leaders the dream of the people or any of them wars, horror, terror and death, nor atomic nations of long-term contamination where the future is a-glowin’. The dream of the people is like a […]

Crumbled Leaves

The dust- laden roads Lay decked with russet brown leaves Some dead to the honking cars madly rushing Crushing and deadening the already dead leaves Screeching under the mad wheels with no concern Others driven away by the frosty wind Biting into the skin Those brushed away, sighed relief The […]

Sojurn

Little nightingales Celebrating the beauty of night Under the blue sky, Decorated with Myriads of twinkling stars, At night; And the skylarks with fluttering wings In the high welkin, praising the dawn, With a virgin’s blush In the east , When crimson rays of the sun Falls upon the droplets […]

Bombing Basra

Do not tell me, “Tears are liars,” Or, “The end has become our tale,”  We are an ancient country why must we die? My face changes, The walls become the only thing to look at, The end seems like a rhyme that tells the great joke to spite everything I […]

Why I Love Poetry

Friendless  and  all  alone Desolate  and  forlorn Wandered  aimless  as  a  leaf Detached  and  wind  blown On  the  wings  of  poesy  I’d  ride Hovering  over  horizon Like  a  cloud’s  clone Hiding  a  rainbow  inside, Silver  lining  fitfully  shown Singing  with  the  breeze  I’d  glide Down  in  unhappy  zone When  my  […]

पुकार लो

कहा था मैने तुमसे एक आवाज़ भर दे देना चली आऊँगी मैं तोड़ कर सब बाधायें नदी की धारा के विरुद्ध तैरना पड़े तो तैरूंगी  मैं , पार करूँगी पर्वत जो आड़े आये तो मगर नहीं रुकूँगी मैं तुम्हारी इक पुकार पर चली आऊँगी मैं है  याद तुमको कहा था […]

Rescue Mission

In the simple gesture of warmth and helpful deeds shines the rescue mission of love and unity. The rescue mission is love, the rescue mission is unity. That’s what we need to see clearly and to be free for love and unity, the cosmic way. Love that saves opens the […]

Men and Monkeys

Meditating in the sun Basking under the tall green shade Of the overhanging branches of the Muscular mango tree The little ‘baby’ monkeys Cling under the belly of their ‘moms’ Keeping watch as they sit among the branches There are some naughty ‘kids’ Jumping with glee as they swing on […]
