when i was
a child precocious
breaking hands legs
on a precipice of life
i stood my body
parts made of wood
than when i grew up
i fell in love slavishly
with her womanhood
broke my heart my spirit
time unrepentant stood
poetically exhausted
lost the reason to live
my shop with all its goods
my passion my pathos
she stupidly misunderstood

dedicated to a great humble street photographer

The Perfumed Garden

The Perfumed Garden, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
home is
where the
heart is
large
abundant
like this
inherited
by my
grand children
as their
birthday wish
my poetry
my photography
nook
my niche
my soul
leaping
weeping
like dying
fish
gasping
for air
panting
sluggish
will soon
vanish

a bhaiyya
from uttar pradesh
hunting for hope
he came
away from
his hometown
life was never
the same
a political
scapegoat
for the
shortcomings
of his own leaders
he took blame
called a bhaiyya
his name
his lifes struggle
smell of mustard
oil his notoriety
to fame ...a pawn
in a game
once trampled
by a horde of
white elephants
now beneath
the wheels of
a cosmic cycle
his fate limping
knock kneed lame
a candle in the wind
an enduring flame
