Premium Member Hair

His mother would stroke his hair,
with gentle fingers.
It made him purr.

Fingers withdrew.
Time combed thinning years.

A one-night woman
took his head in her lap.
It was good to feel again
that love that fingers have
for hair.

In time, he settled down
with a lady,
who bred Afghans.

twenty one soldier's ready to defend
would give up their lives in the call
to keep the fort....not let it fall

the valiant sikh soldiers gave their all
sikhs in total killed 600 men...Read More

Premium Member Sanctuary With Sunshine
I would like to see the sun again
So, I can slowly remember when
Your kindness lit up the room
Instead of wet, black trees of gloom

The rain has drenched the forest
Stolen the sunset from the west
Now, it must begin to dry
So, that...Read More

Strategist Trump
"I am my own strategist,"
Our President proudly said
Pushing the Panic Button
Poignantly painted RED

"The mother of all bombs
Will fill Putin with dread
Assad will be so grateful
I chose Afghans instead

Let North Korea tremble
Their many left unfed
Will shortly have no worries
Because they'll all...Read More

Memories, Someone Asked
Memories, someone asked?
Here’s one. Let me pull it out from the past,
Let me set it next to the grandfather clock in the parlor,
That used to count out time in chimes by the hour.
Mother is sitting in the corner armchair,
As if...Read More

Knitting Love

Uncontrollable frenzy the moment I set out for the wool market
Ecstatic madness losing the teeny heart to bagfuls of double knit
Every year newer hues and textures in my over loaded box beds do warmly fit
My soul flies to the heavens...Read More

Under The Same Moon -in Afghanistan
Here in violence and in beauty, living under the same moon
The beauty is so ancient, but the present violence here consumes
On one hand Afghanistan is all that it appears
Insurgents here are so deadly; through the land they spread fear
But a...Read More

Aussie Flag o the Convict spawn

Under this flag we fought for sure,
 defending Pommy gits and more, 
defending of our nation, 
in murderous situations, 
tween Afghans and the Boer...

fluttered there our heart and...Read More

Thus, O Beloved, Thus
Your village will 
have wells
Well-equipped water-
My village connected 
to the town.
I shall be employed
And teaching poetry 
and plays
In a college.
China will leave 
claiming Ladakh,
Issues of Arunachal 
and Lama, settled.
Kashmir shall be 
again a kingly state,
Chenab to Chin ,K2

Premium Member Their Little Legacy
I am crocheting beautiful blankets.
Afghans, with love, created.
This is a fading skill,
terribly outdated.

For each of my grandchildren
I'm creating a one-of-a-kind.
Each is a little different,
if they compare them, they will find.

Dark and masculine colours
for my grandson, the oldest.
A variety of pastels...Read More

Dear mama

They can never explain how deep my mind is caught.

Stereotyping a poem
The Al-Qaeda is a blatant lie,
Are all Muslims terrorists and spies?
Eyes shift from the black man,
Now fixed on them Afghans,
But in war harmless people die.

To do the necessary things that you must do
To work for your money, not speak friendly words
To feel the pain, from YOUR people, not Afghans or Kurds

Through The Frozen Eye Window
The icicle window to peer and observe
distorts every view into ribbons and odds
Ends which were really beginnings dissolve
and the watcher has ship eyes for lights

to narrow their hearts to be true to their...Read More
