Premium Member Lock Down- Twelfth Day At Home City
Today April 06,2020 in my city
In the time of return home from my office
In GEC circle I am advised by a duty police to stay safe from nCoV-19
'To wear face mask and wash hands'
I was laughing at the advice with...Read More

The Good Side
To some, there is a “good side”
When you’re posing for a pic
And people show their “good sides”
Sometimes trying to be slick.

But if somewhere in Manhattan
Is the place from whence you hark
Then you know the “good side” means one thing –
The...Read More

The movers of paint
The Queen of England exists in a sphere
Of opulence, hygiene, crystals and clear
The Queen of England, between me and you
Is oblivious of the fact, that all is not true
The Queen of England is surrounded by maids
Valets and footmen, horse guard...Read More

Down through the greener woods of Uma,
Through the lions’ den to the green mamba’s palace,
Near the dik dik’s habitat,
As the antelope took off to escape the rage,
Of the approaching leopards whose paws protruded,

Upon the trees were vultures the street sweepers,
Freely...Read More

My Right, My Bite and My Fight
My right, my plight, my fight, my sight how I use and choose to burn bundles of my life’s candle
Matters little what fleas and fees tongue waggers tag and drag, what doubt dream dousers doodle
My right, my tight, my blight,...Read More

What inspires you to write poetry
Pearls of sweat trickling down the cheeks
On the cup of warm tea
As the vendor sells his ice cream
It is a poetry

The fish seller from dawn to noon
Toils hard and earns little
Her smile always reveals poems
Her health is though brittle

Sunshine writes...Read More

On Second Foundation Day of D-Mart
In the month of July during whirlpool
A Legacy was born to challenge a fool 
Who in sphere of market did money drool. 
As all feast and dance and sing in yule
Many people like Vipul, Maulik and Sanket rule 
Over minds...Read More

This is my translation of a Chinese Song dynasty poem and my response to the poem

To the tune of Mulan hua

Again, the east wind blows its heartless gusts
Smears flowers thick upon the ground like scarlet makeup blush
Emerald tower’s curtain...Read More

World wide they're wranglin' up my folks,
So I stay woke 'cause it's no joke,
We came from slavery & hangings by rope,
To wantin' dollars in bulk,

Tryin' to make  the money last         ...Read More

A Dirty Patch
The rules are posted on a sign – 
The city’s made its mark – 
Instructing drivers there are times
They’re not allowed to park.

The streets require cleaning
So at certain listed hours
The sweeper truck comes swishing through
And picks up trash and scours.

But...Read More

It's Always Morning
There is a sliver of the dawn
upon the earth and sky,
as escort to the sun that speeds the day
and will not let it die....that rushes forth
aggressively upon the penitence of night.

So is the love that travels on that constancy,
in haste...Read More

Too Many Churches Are Becoming Political
Too Many Churches Are Becoming Political…

Have you noticed?  This may seem to be “heretical.”
As more churches are becoming too “political”

What in the world are churches doing “for heaven’s sake.”
Do many in churches think about what’s at stake?

We’re to be...Read More

Na koncu ullcy
the window was broken as the smell 
of stinking raw fish heads fresh bread 
and that mangy old dog barking 
always seemed to awaken me I dashed 

quickly for the back door to sneak down 
into the basement where coal...Read More

Crescent Mourning
At twilight I sang 
through veils of darkness,
as moon turned heads
with her crescent mourning,
and yesterdays permeate
within this etherized rhythm,
the metronome swung
a lifetime within a crescendo, 
violet tears seeped octaves
and feel distantly,
to move in life

and shivers took hold

in old lanes paved...Read More

The Sixth Street Blues
The street sweepers sweep away
At four in the morning and try to clean
It will never change, it does no good
Of yesterday's moral decay
On the avenue of the hungry and mean
The menu, drugs and no food

The city bus stop benches are...Read More

Salt of The Earth
Salt of The Earth

Ordinary people
That’s who we are
Our triumphs
Our sacrifices
And torments
Go unsung
For the most part 
Un-noticed by anyone

Ordinary people
Who’s lives may have suffered tradgedy
Quite sperate 
From the world of celebrity
Who’s weight loss and weight gain
Who’s lives are sucked up
So avidly

That’s...Read More
