when
the engine starts
dark black smoke
blow it will be
a clarion call
time to go
incomplete
circle of cosmic
pain although
symmetrical
silence soulless
echoes
a picture
my mind saw
my poetry froze
what you
seek in heaven
lies under your nose
ashes to ashes
dust to dust
memorable moments
a chapter closed

Being a Photographer or a Poet Later In Life Has Not Been The Happiest of Experience That I Can Write Home About

Being a Photographer or a Poet Later In Life Has Not Been The Happiest of Experience That I Can Write Home About, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. racism
exists
in photography
in poetry

a river
a fountain

They who hate Bloggers no end
With the swish of a magic wand
All Bloggers if they could
To hell of a recycling bin send
But every Sunday the Times of India
Meticulously vigorously
With the aid of their blue eyed boy
Shobhan Saxena writes a Bloggers obituary
Cybernetic rules that media barons cant bend
And this Blogger
Bollywoods Most Wanted
his multi colored ass
with poems ready to defend
Blogger Rubbished
Loads and loads of money
On adverse blogging news as canard
They spend
Yet we will live forever
Yes on Google Search
long after you are dead and gone
We who are God Sent
On our souls you a spent force
Of yesterdays dead news
Can’t make a dent
We are the changing world
a brave new cybernetic world
as bloggers we represent
