I prefer to
connect dots
than to mingle particles
in mix, for
connection celebrates
uniqueness of all
yet unites, brings together
in strength -
in mix, whereas
each particle dissolves
diminishing individual worth
to mingle as one
in common ordinariness.


My shroud
I know 
has many spots
of muck thats not pretty
rather is sully;
I scan and feel
very slight
then heart heartens
at a sight.
In one corner
to the left...
yes yes away from the right,
a slender thread
stands out
slim, still and shy
pristine white
as it holds me in shroud
as one whole
with its mere might'
I trace it's trail
in utter dimness
and lo happily I find
I am held firm
through it by You, so
keep strong your clutch
hold, don't let go;
please - it's my only
hope to see the Light.

Lone walker
Turns his head
To gaze ahead
As light recedes from him
- Come take his hand
For sake of grace
Stall, stop his fall
He dared walked this trail
With belief
In darkness he'll
Never be foresaken by Thee.

It's true 
I'm driven
These embers that You set alight
Have kindled the flames
My desire leaps and roars
Whether winds blows against
Or in favour
It seeks for soul
Heights defined by You,

Law is Divine, Logic human

Admittedly -
Your laws govern the universe
Our logic leads to understand,
Laws of nature are steeped 
in perfection, whereas logic's  vulnerable to bias and flaws
Yet when,
journey of every mortal soul
Is outcome of Your Will
And this law
Defines our life's goal -
Where's there room
For any human life to fail 
Despite their many inherent flaw?

Notice. Be Warned

Keep away
Maintain safe distance
For creation is at play
With demolition 
And buiding in my space
My being's piled up
with rubble and disarray
I'm site for reconstruction
Watch out 
The board's on display
Work is in progress here!

To be juiced by You
Was painful
And to taste nectar 
Of my crushed being
Is infinitely sweet!

Sunday, January 19, 2014


To be sorry
And to return
To  what was shown 
Signed as decree
Of unborn soul
Is my Tawba -
Lead me
Brung the blind back
Home with You.

Every desire loses it's sheen
When ii get sneak preview
Of time with You
I escape the race and rut
Just and just 
To sit cross legged 
In Your company alone :)

खुद में खूदी की तलाश जारी है
सो अब के बरस
तनहा खुदाई से मेरी यारी है।
Here is what I see in mirror 
When I check on self
In dwindling twilight
It's dusk of life and I see-
A small frame
Hollowed eyes that try with dare
Not to cry
Fingers fumble 
As i unpick
Bits and pieces 
To sew together 
Yarns and yards
Of stories, myths and lies
That world spun 
To tell me about me
With no mortal soul 
To care or caress 
A feverish forehead
I accept abandonment
Bonds of blood and heart
Are right to steer clear 
Of persona with no accolade 
or award won
No penny seen as mine
Of millions that adorn in bank
In balance then
There isn't much to add
To spell meaning to flamboyant  lives
That care to measure, then approach
I have nought
But a loving heart to give
So I stand firm to let go
See here I stand alone
With all You gave 
written to be gone
From now on
In my bare brevity 
I ask -
Do tell me
Come on state, Manufacturer
Place Your price tag 
Put Your label on me
It's time to verify
What's my worth
net value
As such what do I 
Mean to You?

Thursday, January 09, 2014

I say to myself -
I am tired of your 'prem-game'
In attempt to belong in vain
Here you dither
Avoid and turn
From One
For all mundane
That've left you
Will leave again
For a greener pasture
Only Him will remain
As before 
To help pick. recover
the broken scatter
From run over ground!

On this Christmas Eve
As I replay, reminisce, relive
Happy moments that've 
Gone past 
With the year that's just gone by
The ones that stand proud
Full of joy and awe
Are the ones spent 
In truly magical journey
I met Self
In your sweet, healing company
With courage and truth
I came to know
That potion of love
Is what matters most
In greens of Elspeet
Was where I learnt
With you
To live from truth
Serve with love
And importantly accept
And be in here and now
To lead 
A true Freeman's life!

To the journey friends -Thanks for sharing the best experience  of the year 2013 with me. May more wondrous things happen as 2014 draws us into its happy fold. May there be Love and peace always to behold... Merry Christmas and happy New Year!!!

All I need 
Is a joker in my life
To give a shot 
Of daily laugh
That'll suffice 
To make me move
I'll bluff
My way till
Death do us part.
बहुत लम्बा है रास्ता दीन का-
अभी तो बस मुसलमान हुऐ हैं
तुम तक पलट
अनगिनत अजूबों को समझ
बा मुश्किल
बेईमान से बाईमान हुऐ हैं!

तो आज कहते हो -
तुम खुबसूरत हो
और वह वक़्त भी था जब
मेरी तक रही टकटकी
तुम्हारी नजरों से
अपने प्रतीत स्वरूप की 
पहचान पूछती थी
तुम्हारे अपनापे में सिमट
स्वयं का मान सम्मान
ढ़ुंढ़ती थी
और मेरा आईना़
तुम्हारा अस्तित्व
समूचे ज़माने की गरद लिए
मेरे प्रतिबिम्ब को धुमिल कर
प्रेम के नाम पर 
कुरूपता का प्रमाण पत्र 
निषठुरता से दे चल बढ़ा था
हाँ तुम्हारे ही हस्ताक्षर ने
तो मुस्कुरा कर -
आजीवन क़ैद का हुक्म दिया था -
अब आज कहते हो
तुम खुबसूरत हो!

Between life and death
hangs firm on earth
my inconstant physical form
with much sensibility and sense
it harbours and nurtures
the constant and eternal
sublime soul
I want to pen,
state today in written, certain words
I owe hugely in gratitude
its tarried forth with courage
its stalled against all odds
with certitude...
thank you!

Honouring togetherness

In the perfect imperfection 

Of my being

I've lived life 

Only to understand

It's best to rest in peace

Keep order 

Leave in respective place

all as it 

In surrender to Divine Will

So here hold hand

Help me lay wreath

On bear moments

That adorn monuments

Of the time we've spent

Lovingly together.

If I came from you...

Aboard Jet Airways
Headed home 
Where there is no love
To beckon
Just sense of duty's call
Tugs me across 
Many borders of land;
My heart's in despair
Asking nought 
But to run and run
Be Milkha of my life
To reach and 
Dive deep 
In the thick of your chest
To find final rest
Just where the Master 
Had sprung me from -
O Life, take me to my nest
In seat of my spiritual form.

Let it flow

Why am I so?
I watch any pain 
On screen
Story of unfulfilled love
Separation that I know
It's life's norm
And tears begin to roll
In deluge
Is this my own pain
That's dug out 
of deep well 
Where it was hidden
Shelved away from sight 
Shielding own sense and vision
Until when another story 
Strikes as spade bites in
On dry earth 
To make give way
For waters -
They need flow 
To wash away, clean
Murky reminisces of time.
