i am a poet

November 16, 2017

i am a poet

of things past

some lost in angst

some in laughs

brought out by an urge

to recall to the last

comma and fullstop

of what happened

neither slow

nor fast

for you dear reader

to read

not judge

a life lived

different than your lot

so let it be

till the next thought

nudges the cobwebs

of the mind

moving the fingers

to write

yet another story

in another time

till it is

ordained

to become

a future lost

in another post

as a poem new

.

hidden path (poem new here, but from february!)

September 11, 2013

letting go

or discovering

unlearning to learn

rediscovering anew

a passage of rights

of sorts, uncharted

less known for us

the path strewn

with nettles

pebbles so small

that wound the feet

small droplets of blood

marking the path

for those who follow

to know they are

not alone

attracting also

the insects

like hounds to

the smell or

primeval instinct

of the hunt

the odor of fear

picked by the

keen nose

straining at the

leash for the

hunters whistle

so the uncertain

hidden path

future unknown

but pain certain

beckons,

come.

remembering october 5

December 4, 2009

tomorrow will be two months to the un wfp islamabad, pakistan bombing, which took the life’s of five people.

two months ago the lives of five families were altered in an unimaginable manner, mine too, as my wife is one of the five.

tomorrow i plan a remembrance meeting at the site of the blast. a short meeting, with a minutes silence, prayers, candles, and tying ribbons to the tree outside the building in memory of the dead and injured.

while we will remember our loved ones for ever, this is my way of keeping the world involved in our fight against terrorism — keep the memory alive, speak, for silence is no longer an option.
