If Pictures Were Horses Bloggers Would Ride

If Pictures Were Horses Bloggers Would Ride, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 182,571 items / 1,440,866 views

holistically healing
the pain inside
a pain within
the soul
of a picture
as poetry hides
to the one
who sees it
a pain confides
i was born
the day
my god died
hung on a cross
he survived
i am dead
he is alive
catapulting me
into space
time and tide
loving a
spectral beauty
my humility
her pride
her arrogance
her conceit
her pomposity
her snide
a rollers coaster ride
sometimes up
sometimes down
i wept
i cried
rolls eyes
some joyride
lying a living
corpse
on the wayside
doomed
deleted a kick
on his backside

a bleeding pain
a scream less cry
why why why
a fruitless sigh
dreams too die
lord of the flies
in a pigsty
metaphoric
world of pain
despair
morbidity
a punctured eye
half shut
half open
within
the silence
as her reply
khuda hafiz
alvida
goodbye

to believe
or not to believe
in fate bothers
me a lot
walking on embers
of life's torturous
moments barefeet
burning hot
in the prison cell
of my making
i bleed and rot
staking my claim
on a piece of plot
her heart her mind
her soul a passing
thought oozing pain
allover his surrounding
a broken clay pot
a nuisance like a fly
she inconsequentially
swats he deserves
what he got frailty
thy name is woman
life comes a full circle
a journey aborts
left midway by
karmic hope
deleted dreams
on the horizon
come to naught
why why why
she says so what

every dog has his day

he was sad too
his female
great Dane
had run away
he looked deeply
into my eyes
so much
he wanted to say
but i refused
his polite gesture
when he said
another one
might come
your way
bad days
will go away
i shall wait
hope positively
till her birthday
for a homecoming
i will pray
every day
blogging
the soul of
my despair
i have
nothing
but pain
to share
a thought
makes me
nervous
makes me
scared
from his ricksha
into my painful
eyes he stared
both of us
by karmic fate
entrapped
ensnared
a cosmic
moment
holding
eternity
we both
bared

i am flying away from your window sill never to come back ever again hame bhool jaiye

kasam khaiye
uff hame
is tarah na satiye
rahem khaiye
hame bhool jaiye
baz aiye
mujhe apne
hal par chod dein
ap apne ghar jaiye
mere hath ki bani hui
haleem mat khaieye
thake huen hain
ap so jaiye

words she said na dauriye mare hue murde ko na jagaiye jhooti kasme na khaieye kute jaisi doom na hilaeye mohabbat ke jal main na phasieye man jaiye ..meri ruswai pehchan jaiye ..

this dog kissed my hand from a moving ricksha he understood my pain.. and whispered every dog has his day...moved away with a grin and a smirk...making me feel like a stupid jerk...

Khuda Hafiz

Khuda Hafiz, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 182,568 items / 1,440,343 views

Khuda Hafiz (Perso-Arabic:, Urdu: خُدا حافِظ, khudā hāfiz), usually shortened to Khodafez in Persian,[1] is a parting phrase traditionally used by Persian, Kurdish, and South Asian Muslims. The locution is the most common parting phrase among Muslims in India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, & Iran. [

on the soul
of sorrow
unborn
tomorrow
a parting kiss
khuda hafiz
ever single
moment
of her throaty
unstoppable
laughter
i will miss
the line
went dead
something
was amiss
what was hers
was not his
he presumed
love for friendship
just like this
a karmic accident
no peace of mind
stolen bliss
warrior queen
goddess
an ethereal
princess
from her court
had me
dismissed

Frozen Time

Frozen Time, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 182,567 items / 1,440,337 views

I am a beggar poet and a street photographer.. I beg for pictures in the beggar bowl of my camera pictures that become the scintillating soul of my human poetry..

I am a romantic my world of love is dead or yet to be born,
I search for peace hope humanity a golden dawn
a world away from racist hate or scorn I am
as much a Hindu as you are a Muslim
mandir masjid dilon pe banaon
let bygones be bygones

I distance myself from every religion
that on the soul of humanity its hate spawns

dosti barkarar hoti
aur ham jhagda na karte
hasi khushi
miljulkar rehte
ap kehtin
jeeve jeeve pakistan
ham kehte sada
zinda rahe hindustan
phuzul batein na karte
jeet aur har se dur rehte
agar ap ko zara bhi akal
hoti ap hamse khafa na hote
ham dosti ki kabar par na rote
kam se kam ham
acche dost hote
aman ka beej apne
bageeche main bote
pyare lamhe yadein
siskiyan sansien
ham is trah na khote


gar nasib main juda hona tha.. kam se kam dubara milne ki.. khawish toh rakhte
Kash 'hum juda na hote Kabi alvida na kahte

David Hazell in Defense of Firoze Shakir

David Hazell in Defense of Firoze Shakir, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. David Hazell is a white man in a world of prejudiced poetry where the only currency of poetic exchange is hate and unstoppable rant against a colored man and his poetry.

Poets in Poetryland suffer from megalomania, psychotic bitchiness.

Here in Poetryland they dont like David Hazell as he champions our cause, fights for our rights even after the system has kicked us out-

David Hazell is not alone there are other poets too who are upright and just and the list is not very long...But Howlin Dervish is the other name who has always supported me each time I was attacked by rabid dogs and monstrous hogs.

After I left Poetryland , I did delete the few poems that were my weapons of counter attack against rampant racism..
Racism in Poetryland exists behind a white mask of serpentine hate.
I flew the Cuckoos nest.. Luckily...

our flesh
will be eaten
away by worms
we who are giants
were once
a drop in a sperm
we finish
our imprisonment
on earth
a life term
we hurt
we hurt
others
we falter
we err
we squirm
our dreams
flexible
our intentions
rigid and firm
our journey
cycling away
from here
to another
kingdom
immigration
check
not required
stamped
on our pompous
conceited
arrogant bums
from one plane of life
to another plane after life
we jump we fuck
we fornicate
we hump
two legs
holding
the curse
of humanity
a penile
stump
into the chaotic
darkness
of a womb
our load
of rubbish
we dump
destroy nature
through wars
pestilence acid rain
our poison
into the soul
of an unborn child
we pump

tara rum pum tara rum pum

I have to pull my shalwar leg up as it causes great pain to the wound on my leg, and it is very uncomfortable hurting pain .

And I have started carrying my antique silver stick to hit anyone who gets on my nerves , I have become irritable annoying and grouchy all her fault.

The heat humidity in Mumbai is as bad as Hell I change my T twice a day, as it is totaly drenched when I come back from work.

These are new pictures I had shot in the last few days that I am uploading at Flickr..

The newspapers have written about Damir and Zlatko.. which is a nice gesture and a sweet memory to take home as a blogger their story will always be on Flickr Facebook and Twitter..blogged by me.

I had not met my Croatians friends since a very long time , though I was told they played at Bandra Bandstand,at Carter Road they have opposition to their collecting money at the promenade by the authorities there .


And these guys are stranded in Mumbai have meager funds , they are living of the Mumbaikars love and charity, these two guys are cycling around the world to spread the message of through Balkan African Music.

your ears
need to be
urgently
cleaned
or you will soon be
on your death bed
love lives in the ear
not in the heart or head
squarely he said
probing my ear
he moved ahead
removing love
notes of lead
as my face
shivered
trembled
tomato red
from within
i profusely bled
a beggar poet
through the ear
sweet nothings
she had fed
haleem kebabs
hospitality
zaika great spread
than all of a sudden
her line went dead
silence the cause
of a pain unsaid
all my poems
torn to shreds
warrior queen goddess
her wings spread
has flown the world
of a beggar poet
on his sick bed
warrior queen goddess
pompous conceited arrogant
big head high bred well read
wants war fire brimstone
bloodshed from a poet dickhead

both seeking hope
friendship harmony
met by accident
a cricket match

tit for tat
doomed deleted
on her doormat
divine beauty
divine form
of a sweet smelly
poets pet cat
memories
pain poetry
passion pathos
on his face
he fell flat
green with envy
one hell cat
gloomy faced
angry
on her window sill
incommunicable
as she sat

no chitchat

was she real
was she fake
she who keeps
me all awake
she for whom
my heart aches
a thirst i could
not slake
she who loves
papaya
pancake
all shades
of blue
coffee water
her intake
she who left me
without
a handshake
leaving behind
memories
of unwashed
emotions
as keepsake

my fucked
cosmic head
touching
the ground
seamless
synchronicity
electrifying
my inner being
from a picture

burnished ass
burnt earthly
urban brown

United Colors of Poetry

United Colors of Poetry, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 182,543 items / 1,439,961 views

poetry
passion
pathos
a love
one sided
collective loss
a rebel
without
a cause
a sartorial
silence
a poetic pause
because
she was
mentally
emotionally
drained
she was cross
warrior
queen goddess
big boss
on a horse
kinetic chaos
karmic floss
what comes
across
divine beauty
pretentious gloss
a rolling stone
gathers no moss
two different
countries
two different
culture
but a single
ethos
united
colors
of poetry
embossed

my poetic posterior
burnt urban brown
sartorial serendipity
of a poet clown
a word tin smith
swathed in pain
on the Venus of her
Mound a warrior
goddess queen
my fate had crowned
i am here but
she has left
the hunting
grounds
she is not around
her kingdom
out of bounds
silence in
muted sounds
memories her words
my souls serenity
ponds like a rumi
dervesh i go
round and round
doing the dance
of death funereal
music plays
in the background
poetic and profound
corrugated shutters
she has downed
on my doomed fate
like a silver bullet
ricochets on the
rebound hitting
me hard to
confound
in a dead poets
grayeayard
at facebook
buried
underground

finally hopelessly home bound

You were The one WHO Said good bye n that u dont wanna stay my friend :-/


some stories
were never
meant
to have
happy endings
over streams brooks
they wend
just jarring notes
reverberate
remorsefully
a message
in stillness
they send
into
the unknown zone
a beggar poet
walks home
empty handed
back bent
deleted
doomed
over
the weekend
an olive leaf
once again
he extends
whatever
has to
happen
will happen
she is busy
domestic
chores
to attend
she is blind
she is deaf
histrionically
she pretends
