FABIYAS M. V.
Blog Posted:11/29/2012 3:19:00 PM

 

So many wonderful foriegn writers on soup, I wanted to perhaps encourage you to read FABIYAS M. V.. FABIYAS is an English teacher with a Masters degree in Arts & Education. He teaches in a secondary school in Kerala, India. He has just published a new book called Moonlight And Solitude if you would like a copy he can be reached at mvfabiyas@gmail





The World Blasts Everyday


The world blasts in one nook or the other everyday.

It writhes amidst the stink of the burnt emotions.

Lullabies are mutilated in the roar of A.K.47.

A flock of  black birds hovers in the sky.

Waif dogs and vultures carve the sculptures

On the scattered fragments of the innocence.

Infants fumble for the nipples among the debris.

Forlorn whimpering of the newest widow 

Rises up with the smoke. Family men

Step in to the death wagons with bleeding thoughts.

White doves shudder to sit on the roof of the worship.

A hundred revenge kids are born in each blast.

All ‘isms’ end in ‘revegisms’. Funeral of the peace

Is celebrated in the clattering of the weapons.

As the emotions lose the buttress of sense and reason,

The world blasts, then it bounces back.



(Pendle War Poetry,U K has selected and published this poem in the book,

'Selected Poems 2012')


Explore the mystery behind the mysteries of life in the heartland of rural India. Seep yourselves in the colors, sights and sounds of the exotic. Experience both a simplier and in some ways more complex day in the lives of farmers, lovers, or the lost. I highly recommend this fine poet!

    I think in order to write in a language not your first requires so much more effort you seldom find a poet who isn't trying to be a serious writer amongst this group! I wish I had more than 1 language...grrr...American school still do not put enough emphasis on language..hell they're not even doing real well at teaching english!
