Headless Chicken In Pain ...Her Feet In Chains

Headless Chicken In Pain ...Her Feet In Chains, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

this is how i
saw her
through
the mirror
of my mind
surreal
creative
demonstrative
poetic and kind
its people like
this on my
journey i find
they pursue
my dark soul
telling their
story as pictures
story of hapless
neglected mankind
in this case muslim
beggars with their
cosmic pain
on the streets
aligned..outside
the mosque
the namazis
dont see them
color blind
the muezzins
call on their
souls defined
heads bowed
in prayer as
the beggar
pleads for
a few coins
a task
assigned
misery
hopelessness
her empty
stomach
grinds
as it
churns
unwinds


a picture is
sometimes
mind over matter
in time space
confined
an altar
of piety
eternal pain
enshrined
greater god
his godliness
equally
combined

Street Photographers Are Born Not Made

Street Photographers Are Born Not Made, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

pictures
with a
devilish
passion
they shoot
dont trade
with every
shot god
presses
the trigger
comes
to their
aid ,,
pictures
live as
memories
never fade
street
photographers
gods chosen
children unafraid
color black or white
call a spade a spade
pictures in spectral
light ..of the poor
the homeless
the depraved
those that
were drowning
clinging to a
straw on your
cosmic consciousness
they shot and saved
images touching
the soul of poetry
wave after wave

even if it
is illegal
on the
streets
it is
something
the adhar
card ration
card other
things it
will bring
even a
electric
connection
a surprise
spring ..
hafta
to the
local hoodlum
the cops
municipal
devas
no demolitions
no deathly sting
as long as you
are lucky master
of the cosmic ring
having a house
in bombay most
important thing
neighbors envy
owners pride
in silence sing

When Muslim beggars die there are no comets seen -, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
a battle for
survival
he fought
his pain
unforeseen
begging
away his
life routine
while elsewhere
muslims killed
muslims one
called the other
heretic unclean
as the scriptures
bled mosques
bombarded
a killing machine
tears on the soul
of peace brotherhood
in muslim countries
a gory scene
the minarets silent
voiceless serene
who will save the
muslims from
muslims ..a
moment that
has lost its
sheen ..
death in the
throes of life
caught in
between
