Jamia Masjid – Why Are You Shackled?

I dreamt last night; there was some hoot, On your minarets, the skies were frowning. They were clad with black clouds of the hour. And some black birds over them were hovering. Their rustle of feathers was wailing; Lamenting our cowardice or helplessness, may be. It woke me up early...

A Mother’s Longing

as and when muezzin calls for prayers bedridden mother leans back stretching forth her hands in despair with tears in her eyes; longing in her heart she trudges slowly tying her scarf she murmurs in sombre voice lend me your hand, i oblige! with each step we take there I feel...

Sometimes days turn into nights and nights spilled into months and we hadn’t seen each other. I knew she wouldn’t venture out; neither did I wait for her glimpse near her house. Sometimes I knew curfew was the villain of our love, so were the...

Everyone Is Dead

The news broke and The world was no longer a host. The night began to beam And the morning Shrouded in veil With every drop of blood. The Jehlum turned crimson As I could speak of valor The trees began To rumble Remains of A blazen Chinar, Torn motherland! Everyone is dead, Waleed There is none to wail Or...

Revitalize My Soul – A Prayer

O, Allah-The benevolent, inspire me that tiddler innocence. That my eyes still pretend and fancy. In this sullen shade, my heart throbs and cry. Dismay in sight, screams my heart hence! Rehearse me those vanished gossips of twilight. With friends, which I used to savour with a penchant! In solitude,...

Madhosh Balhami – A Tribute

witness these words stand to the loss on the fifteen of March of blood and words that burned under the humble roof of Balhami who opened his heart and left his house to the guests who belonged to his poems in Khunmoh that day three men honoured their land two with blood the...

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...

Snow, Resistance

It's snowing in my land Where blood still runs Through the lanes And wounds are still Afresh Will somebody up there In the clouds check - the one who's pouring These flakes Might it be my occupier In his vain effort To hide the...
