A Poets Vision Incomplete

A Poets Vision Incomplete, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. as she sat silently
on her seat
i could hear
her palpitating
heart beat
the movement
of the bus
kissing
the trinkets
on her feet
outstretching
her soul
a thought
of a poets vision
incomplete
on the crossroads
of life
on another bus
we did meet
i shot
her innocence
cute and sweet
ravishing
her beauty
a spectral light
her fate line
my mound
of Venus
my love seat
embellished
words
of passion
placed at
her dainty feet
what we want
we dont get
however hard
we try or cheat
soggy moist
chapters
of love
stolen moments
we cant delete
from surat
to mumbai
a kindred spirit
aligned
to a back seat
on my body
i could feel
her body heat
the mind of man
his struggling
imagination
coupled with her
sensuality
his wingless soul
his bedroom suite

Once the bus reached Surat Bus Depot , the night mare begins , there is no connecting to Mumbai from the dept the buses leave at 8 pm and I had reached Surat at 2 pm.

Enter the Bhaiyya migrant touts who con fleece the devotees left right and center , they are ricksha drivers who will take you a distance of 12 km they say and put you in a Mumbai for rs 400 you have to give them 150 for the ricksha ride.

I was lucky the guy did not charged me for the ricksha ride but would take Rs 350 to put me in a a car sharing.

I agreed but on reaching the highway and waiting for about an hour there was no car he charged me Rs 250 and put me on a bus to Thana.

The bus belonged to a private company , they pay the driver 100 and pocket the Rs 150 as net profit.

And I met guys in the new bus who were badly conned a couple they had paid Rs 1500.. to reach Mumbai but they had an emergency and w…

one is called hope
the other harmony
on natures sweet carpet
both are free
walking together
from here to eternity
children
of the same
human family
sharing love warmth
peace under
the shade
of a banyan tree

My Ajmer Journey Comes To An End

My Ajmer Journey Comes To An End, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. After I reached Peersaabs house from Taragadh, I had to leave to catch my bus from a highway on Ajmer .

I said goodbye to all of them..Peesrsaab had bought my ticket for the return journey home by bus , the first time I was traveling by bus to Mumbai from Ajmer via Surat.

I was barefeet throughout my stay at Ajmer and Taragadh.

But now that I was walking towards the Bus Station I decided to wear my slippers and continued shooting humanity as my salute to the Holy City of Ajmer.

Javed the loyal Murid of Peersaab carried my bag on his shoulders.

From the main road I took a rickshah to the highway at Ajmer to catch the bus heading to Surat.

Luckily I had a sleeper seat in the bus and I shot a lot of stuff thus killing time and my boredom.

At Surat I was taken 12 km again to another highway to catch another bus to Vasai.. and local train from Vasai to Bandra.

I Meet Hijras Wherever I Go

I Meet Hijras Wherever I Go, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 134,827 items / 1,001,036 views

some treat me as friend
some treat me as foe
shooting the hijra angst
i smoothly flow
hijras are humanity
perhaps you dont know
neither man nor woman
human although
pouted demeanor
red hot lipstick
raised eyebrow
swinging their ass
from head to toe
tumescent trumpets
they love to blow
making love
to eternity
as they flow
hijra happiness
hijra woe
through my
pictures
their androgynous world
in a glass bottle
of emotion
i faithfully show
you ask for less
i give you more
the hijra dancer
the hijra bawa
the hijra beggar
the hijra whore
a roofless world
without any doors

The Reptilian Beggar at Ajmer, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 134,804 items / 1,000,918 views

prostrating form
of man caught
in a vicious snare
snake like movements
scaly skin
the reptilian
beggar of ajmer
kissing mother earth
his agony
with her
he shares
at shoes
slippers
he stares
a barefeet
poetizes
his pain
as he gulps
for air
captured
on the emulsion
of a poem
on the soul
of a cameras
software
bald headed blogger
where angels
fear to dare
finally
on flickr facebook
twitter
his privations
his trials
tribulations
ensnared

The Hazards of Adding a Contact at Flickr

The Hazards of Adding a Contact at Flickr, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. I had a friend request at Flickr I checked his pictures totally tame about a dozen, simple things, I was about to add him , when all of a sudden I checked his favorites, and his favorite had almost all the porn you could ask for , blow jobs , fucking, and he was member of all the porn groups on Flickr.

Call me outdated , conservative but I will not add such a contact at all, this is what I mean by one sided contact , they add you without your permission and they add your pictures as favorites so my pictures become a part of the already fucked pictures they have collected from other fucked porn loving members.

This is my dilemma and unending grouse with Flickr Management, per se.

And why must I police for Flickr report abuse or flag their pictures , thy like porn fine but I dont want it shoved up my deep throat.

I am not interest in genitalia micro shots that make mountain of a molehill and a…
