My Face, My Secrets

That unites the wild with the caged,
Those captivated within bondage and those roaming free; disengaged.
At a first wandering gaze or slinking inquisitive eye,
One may be misled in the assumption that this feature perhaps...Read More

Happiness
Happiness may be where my friends are.
For with them many memories were made,
But those moments and times now feel so faraway.
The truth seeming to be they all have left me,
Loneliness is my only companion, I formerly believed.
The friends I have...Read More

We Write of Bugs!

As poets, we can write of many things -
romance and true love, just to name a few.
We even write about the pretty wings
of butterflies and seas of cobalt blue.

We see a mantis, and symbolically,

Striking a Blow for Freedom:Confident, Courageous and Called
Women have been battered and abused

To shine a light and give a voice to those

Tiranga (Tricolour)

First unfurled, was the Indian tricolor; 
on Everest, the world's highest peak.
All the three colours are deliberated 
to give some message and speak.

Dark saffron, white and Indian green,
the three colours of Indian national flag;
all in horizontal rectangular bars,

TRUST
TRUST
People say trust is 
	A two-way street
But I see trust 
	As chess pieces
Often manipulated
	To fit the needs
	Of the two players
The sad thing
	Is looking back
At the conclusion of each game
And see all the chess piece
	Casualties
When you realize
How many trusts 
	Had to...Read More

A Danse Macabre
Along a winding country road
one autumn’s day of late,
I chanced upon an aged abode,
up a hill beyond a gate.

The house was old and quiet,
not a person 'neath its roof
but in a tree close by it
perched a bird, somewhat aloof.

It cawed...Read More

What does one do, when they feel forgotten?
What good are tears unseen or sobs unheard
and when the tree of liberty seems to be rotten
because they’ve been dismissed and rejected at a word?

What does one do, when they’re silenced

TRUMP: Persistently Steamy Poetry
By: Moji Agha -- June 24, 2016 -- Tucson, Arizona

Last dusk at a small Tucson park,
my 3-year-old dear friend, Rafi,
insisted unhesitatingly on imitating, 
no, actually embodying, a baby dog.

REALLY! As real is Trump's candidacy.  

It was as if he...Read More

I spend my hours these days
Watching the Olympics

Canadians  sometimes winning

Still no men
Emotional with Oleksiak
16 year old Torontonian
Breaking Canadian records 
With 4 medals
Women  rowers too getting there
Wrestlers, high jumpers,...Read More
