When The Clock Strikes 12 (A New Year Poem)

Like the eyes of a warrior that shuts
for a while and rejoins the battle;

Like the wings of a bird that freezes

It Is Still There!

There is Water in hard Pulp,
There is Water in pure Milk;
There is Water in thick Tears,
There is Water in Blood too;

Ebony Romance

I unbuckle her jaded black Jacket.
And lift from drapes of crimson Velvet.
With Eyes of a watchful Guard on duty,
I ogle at this naked man-made beauty.

Full Stop

Looking at you, I remember the first time we met:
sometime in my first grade, when the page-thirsty
line was running wild with its black army, trying to
capture every length and breadth of the white land

On Taj Mahal

O’ King, I proudly salute what thou hast built,
As a timeless monument of immense beauty
But I staunchly salute Not what thou hast built,
As the greatest monument of divine love.


God is
just an answer
for every question
That doesn't have an answer.

Code Of Silence

At the crossroads of hate and fear,
I met those whom no man held dear;
A Donkey, a Hippo, a Canetoad, a Viper,
All spoke a code, so hard to decipher.

Common Photographer

The common volunteer among us
Who helms the digital eye
To capture the celebration
To mummify for our tomorrow.

Communicative Clouds

Having adorned them with words before
I flung my pen to the sorority of clouds
and stood beneath for a repay in verse.

Daily Death

Bedspread like black waves,
awaits the kill tonight;

Pillows like puce slabs,
