A Song Unto the Ages

The silence of white roses with deaf petals beneath a muted sun holds the music’s place in a steady embrace while the implosive force of entropy passes by in an instant’s blink, and then rhythm is reborn as melody blooms anew toward a colorful fruition of infinite solar expansion that […]

The Law Of Life And Death

Life is a tenant on this earth! It has to vacate it The moment it’s lease expires! No one can over stay, It’s the unfailing law of nature, All wrapped up in an unsolved mystery. But is it fair?  Is there an escape from its clutches? The lucky ones Give […]

अजीब सच

क़ैद करतीं हैं बिना ज़ंजीर के पाबंदियाँ हम जहाँ हैं, बे – दर – ओ – दीवार है, फिर भी क़फ़स है कोई दरवाज़ा नहीं, खिड़की नहीं, तीली नहीं, क्या  कहें  तुमसे  हमारी  क़ैद   का  मंज़र  अजब  है कुछ तो हैं मजबूरियां, कुछ मुश्किलें, समझाएं क्या ठीक है सब ज़िंदगी […]

The Spider

The little spider That builds its web of silk Is a smart politician That weaves invisible traps for Simple  proletariats To walk into its parlor And lie wrapped to be preyed. I saw it cling on two opposite poles Silky, soft and shiny,  Spreading a silver glow in the sunlight […]

My Smiling Heart- A Foundation Stone

My house and my mill- the two poles for my bullock in me to move around, feel good to crush the oil out to fuel the woven and the machines- significant for my sun and moon to rise . My moon and my wife- the two poems for my restricted […]

The Monsoon

It seems it has finally broken its silence The tearful hot season has come to its end The desperate farmers look up to heaven To thank the Almighty for His care Last evening it was dull and dreary The sticky sweat trailing down my back The tired animals, birds and […]

कुछ यूँ हुआ

ऑंखें  ना सरे आम कहीं भीगने लगें वो दर्द का  बादल मेरे भीतर सिमट गया चुप थी ज़ुबान, बोल उठीं दिल की धड़कने उसका ख़याल जब मेरे दिल से लिपट गया कुछ फ़र्क़ नहीं अब, कि वो आये या ना आये रुत बीत गयी, प्यार का मौसम बदल गया खुशबू  […]

Symphony

मेरी कहानी

अब ये ज़मीं नहीं, ना मेरा आसमां  ही है लगता  नहीं है  कोई मेरा हमनवां भी है बादल उफ़क़ पे छा गए या शाम हो गयी सूरज का नहीं दूर तक नाम-ओ- निशां भी है कितने मुक़ाम रास्ते में आये, खो गए बस आख़िरी पड़ाव तेरा आस्तां ही है तुमने […]

Cancer

She lay heaped  As though a bundle of Tattered rags in a corner, stacked To be chucked aside…  Derailed from life’s torturous clasp Shattered…. A human body left to rot With cancerous cells Cut off and bound… to be saved? But the lifeless body susicates On borrowed fumes of oxygen […]
