You imbecile! Didn’t feel in life Or reckon your grave. Denied pure sound Preferred the ‘caw’ Felt you were brave.   Vicarious penitence None for your sin In this or after life. You said, wrote That will curse you Leave you in strife.   Your impotence Brought the words Impure, obscene. You plotted with Devil’s logos Imports unclean.     28 September 2016 Tabjia, Abha, KSA...

You are laconic when words pant in pain being less or nothing. In time when I need to resurrect the dying cause That is good for all and for me You get quieter than death. You smile away all the queries You contrive a bubble that is essentially short lived But saves you from the curious eyes of your helpless fellows. You busk in the sun but leave no rays for others You believe power is your...

Even Google declines to navigate us Even GPS refuses to find a dot of us On the slate that was preserved since the beginning. We keep mum either in collaboration or indifference or fear. Our cheap everyday life has made everyday incidents commonplace We don’t bleed anymore, just sweat if the AC doesn’t work. We wear insidious casual dress Nothing gets inside. Everything gets cliché. We feel...

If seasons hadn’t change What would change then? The sun, moon, sky The fierce flowing mane?   If seasons hadn’t change What would nature care? Blossoms, corns, thunder, Or the polar bear?   If seasons hadn’t change What would summer do? Would fall find a path In the highest blue?   If seasons hadn’t change Would winter feel the cold? Would spring lose blossoms In the cruelest...

      When I was swallowing KFC or McDonald’s With Pepsi or coke The kid in Darfur or Homes Aleppo or Gaza Was scavenging in the dirt for a piece of bread. When I was crushing juicy savory chicken between my well brushed teeth with smoothening soft drinks My humanity was smothering the eyes of the have nots that were standing curiously outside the thick transparent glass...

  Some of us are super excited seeing a video clip, which has to some extent gone viral especially among the Muslim community.  It was a piece collected from Mr. Modi’s – the Indian Prime Minister- speech that he gave on March 17, 2016 in Global Forum For Peace, Tolerance And Unconditional Love in New Delhi. I found it quite interesting. He was talking about the literal meaning of ‘Islam’...
