Irani Chai, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. woh barish
ka mausam
unka kapta jism
unki bheegi palke
yad dilaye
chai ki
tashtari
ko pakdte
hue unka
komal hath
thartharaye
mujhe dar
tha kahin
chai unke
jism pe chipke
hue kapdon
par no gir jaye
unki muskurat
woh bisri bhuli
yadein bhikraye
cafe sunrise
main suraj
chup jaye
brun maska
yun hi tanhai
main pigal
ta jaye
aj 35 sal
ke bad
irani chai
peete hue
unki yad
phir ghode
ki tarah
mera saya
ban jaye
woh kitne
bacchon
ki ma hai
kya woh mujhe
yad karti hain
jaise main
unhe yad
karta hoon

Hussain Is Humanity .. I Wish We Followed What We Preach

Hussain Is Humanity .. I Wish We Followed What We Preach, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

somethings you
are born with
somethings
you inherit
as your
upbringing
your culture
even a teacher
cannot teach
you can be
human
yet humanity
beyond your reach
when you hurt
others moral
code of love
brotherhood
you breach
sometimes
silence
is better
than what
you preach
oh hussain
give mankind
the munificence
of your pain
i beseech

zainab ali akbar ke jeene ki dua maango bach jaaye mera bacha bas uski dua maango

zainab ali akbar ke jeene ki dua maango bach jaaye mera bacha bas uski dua maango, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. zainab ali akbar ke jeene ki dua maango
bach jaaye mera bacha bas uski dua maango

zainab bade naazon se tumne usse paala hai
rehjaaye nazar meri logon ye dua maango

zainab ye pisar meri aankhon ki bisarat hai
mera laal bach jaaye tum ye iltejaa maango

abbbas ke marne ne meri tho kamar todi
hamshakle payambar hai logon ye dua maangi

ghutniyon ke bal chalkar pahunche laashe akbar par
qaime tak pahunch jaaye maadar ye dua maango

rakhte thay uthate thay maiyat ali akbar ki
lalila kaheen dekh na le tum bhi ye dua maango

My Photography During Moharam Is Based On Humanity Blood Sweat And Tears

My Photography During Moharam Is Based On Humanity Blood Sweat And Tears, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
a blade
cutting through
a childs head
the child
does not fear
as karbala
a poem
a passion
draws near
a ship on
the sands of
destiny
he steered
why we bleed
to others might
appear weird
but it is a mark
of our faith
unlike those with
marks on the
forehead
long beard
persecution
embedded alive
in walls bombed
dismembered
decapitated
the shias
are waiting
for their
hallowed
imam when
he appears
into the
womb of
ghame
husain
a shia
child is
born
nurtured
reared

this poem in its humility is dedicated to my dearest friends hassan shirazi and dr mansoor showghi ..
