The Beggar Poets Last Stand

The Beggar Poets Last Stand, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

I shoot hope through my pictures
shot on the street ..i love mother
india i walk barefeet ..i am human
before you call me a muslim
hindu christian or any religiosity
that is part of your ethos your
angst ..i need not repeat
i shoot the poetry of life
of man his failure his
defeat as he competes
to be able to stand up
on his two feet
i am an awakening
of a thought a walking
winding sheet ..
a heart beat...
my cosmic fate
through another mans
sorrow i try to cheat
i showcase pain
humanity ,, sorrow
a borrowed tomorrow
incomplete ...


About Eid Al Addha or Bakra Idd

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eid al-Adha (Arabic: عيد الأضحى‎ ‘Īd al-’Aḍḥá, IPA: [ʕiːd al ʔadˁˈħaː], "feast of sacrifice") or "Festival of Sacrifice" or "Greater Eid" is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to commemorate the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son Ishmael …

The Bandra Skywalk

The Bandra Skywalk, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
to ease traffic
it was made
through the pockets of
the public it was paid
but it is a monstrous
disaster that only gives
shelter and shade to
the honorary citizens
of bandra the homeless
the beggars drug addicts
peddling brown sugar
charas ganja ,..trade
old people cant walk
up the steps ..the escalator
in very bad shape unused
needs a fast upgrade
if only this money was
utilized building a flyover
infrastructure frayed
only in india you can
rape brutally murder
the victim if you are under
18..the law will come
to your aid 3 years
in the reformatory come
out a more hardened
criminal. more murders
more rape ..all paid

sadly of the men in khaki
even kids are not afraid
our justice system
sleep walks .. the rape
victim again raped
in her grave .. laid
our ethos depraved

A Bridge Too Far ..

A Bridge Too Far .., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

sitting in gloom
within the silhouette
of doom swept
away from humanity
by a cosmic broom
an unfinished dream
as the bells chime
in the tomb..away
from pain misery
of this world a
withered cosmic
womb....shadows
lurk and loom
poisonous fumes

I am learning to get in touch with the silence within myself.

i shoot
pictures
that are
not real
dreams
made
of clay
light
shadows
street play
give me
freedom
the mind
says once
from one head
to another head
it strays ..falls
prey ..to be or
not to be betrayed
a picture i composed
god made ..as i move
away from the object
of my delusions in
purple haze .. winding
corridors of darkness
funereal music plays
from one corner to another
corner in a poets phrase
blinding maze ..i bicker
i shout i scream .. but silence
weighs ...words i can delete
effortlessly my feelings
i cant erase .. alluringly
amazed as i begin
a chase .. from flickr
to twitter to facebook
to tumblr to googelplus
blogspot..frozen time
confusingly..rekindling
my tomorrows today ,,,

to a new friend .. MM

Adding Souls To Beggars After Shooting Them..

Adding Souls To Beggars After Shooting Them.., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. beggars
are not considered
human by society
at large ..maybe we
were slaves without
freedom ..in the
british raj ..but
today .. we too
have become
beggars ..under
the vortex of
corrupt governance
failing law and order
delusional discharge

Say The Lovers Of Mumbai ... Dudes Thank You For Building The Bandra Skywalk

Say The Lovers Of Mumbai ... Dudes Thank You For Building The Bandra Skywalk, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

the high tide
created a havoc
at the band stand
carter road rocks
a gun half cocked
half way in
half way out
just could not
dock..so now
to the bandra
skywalk we flock
no eunuchs to
lift the saree
embarrass us
or mock...
with his stub
of a dead limpid
flintlock
last time poor
girl sitting
on my lap
almost
died of
shock
only the
drug addicts
masturbating
round the clock
we avoid looking
at them..holding
their members
as they sheepwalk
ladyboys wearing
stilettos that go
tick tock with
short matching
frocks scenes
off the sidewalk
lovers point
of peace
bandra s
grand masti
gand masti
on the skywalk

"You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.
