THE WAILING EID

The wailing Eid proclaims the dawn of happiness But how would people listen When their ears covered with wails and screams? How would they see the decoration of joy? When their mystic home is coated with blood? How would they see the crescent moon When their kids are butchered in...

A Festival Inside Four Walls

I could hear the noise saying the moon was sighted. Joy all around, the festival was tomorrow and I wasn't excited. I stared at the moon, they all found it jubilant and bright. It was so quiet and too dark for me, felt like...

Strange Colours Of Kashmir

Under the wide grey Behind those high blues There is a red vale In the name of green Where every dark scar Is deeper than a black hole Where meadows are lush But glum with grief Where the echoes are mere airs moving Habitual of such shrieks I see hawks searching For their prey I see...

2010 – A Remembrance

In the deserts of life They danced To the smiles and cries Of the only flower Blooming in their garden Of hope. They protected him From everything. Even hid him From the thorns That belonged to him That identified with him. But they! They kept him Floating in serene waters Away from the thorns And the...

You Were Not There

Yes, you were not there When they seize my scarf, from my head You have not seen them, Entering my house, at darkly nights They deliberately chose, our lone store room, So to mix tea leaves with turmeric. there I used to peep, from a small hole in fright. my mother’s cries, and wails for hours till...

Should I Forget?

should I forget
Why conceal the truth under the new snow? In pursuit of winter sports on snow covered meadows Which are as dark as the snow above is white. With the massacre of each village blood red. Should I count Gaw Kadal, Alamgari Bazar or Wandhama? Or all others that you...

In Solidarity With Syria

In Idlib Could I see Death Dancing invisibly With no traces Of Blood Anywhere. They say The Gas it was That choked The blossoming buds Taking them away Far away From all the chaos Of the land To a land Peaceful and serene Where death Has no powers And is As helpless as It renders us Humans here On blood-soaked Earth.

Again and Again

Another killing. Another blinding. Again battered. Again bruised. Again life slipped into deep chasm of death. Again devaluing life. Again shattering of imposed normalcy. Again shattering of transient illusions, delusions. Another grave awaits. Another mother loses her life. Again and again how will she live without her chopped...
