Prem Nizar Hameed Poems

True to conscience, a bride is not a commodity of trading
Hovering on the lucratively flourishing marriage marketing;
Every woman is born with grace and dignity on the earth
Do respect her life, love her life, but never ruin her worth;

The man who knows
The meaning of love
Will never look for
The spelling of hate

The power supply may be interrupted within minutes;
Before that, as a routine, today I must write a few lines;
But at present I don't have any thread or a storyline,
And I am not an artist, else I can at least draw your face;

We can donate many a thing,
Even organs and the body;
But one thing which we can't donate
Is the four-letter small word: LOVE!


Reminiscences are the most beautiful
And fragrant flowers in my Vrindavan;
Day and night they bloom with feel to
Heal my old wounds of separation one by one;

The morning breeze
Took away some of my tensions,
And went through the express way,
Expressing what it has in its mind:

I may be an atheist
Or an agnostic
I wake up on the right side

Lover's Amnesia...
When one's promises leave by
Petal by petal,
The other will feel swelling

Hasmukh Mehta ji left us for his heavenly abode,
A painful news to everyone who knows him very well;
So many poems he gifted to this column for years,
Many a poet received his gracious comments on his

If a person has a loving heart
He won't think about negativism;
That is why I always make my heart
Overflow with love and humour sense.

I keep all letters close by the heart
To see how they become words
To give me wonders:
The word friendship always spreads


As prudence rules well
Imprudence never gets chance
For impunity

Of late, my laptop was attacked by a virus
And that resulted in a lockdown of all myactivities
Since I am not familiar with mobile typing
I started reading the printed news papers for a while

Reveal your mind please
Telescope discovers now
Even Milky Way;
But is there any scope how

My mind says:
You will search for this note
I am sure, because….,
It is for you, for you only

Kochi meri jaan
You are on a frying pan
With thick toxic fumes;
Routine water scarcity

If you cannot observe anything in the mind
For your new creative assignment of the day,
Create something out of nothing as I do now;
Don't worry about the depth of your creation,

All of a sudden, our ceiling fan and pedestal fan
Went on a coma like situation at a lunch time;
My wife consulted the doctor at a repair clinic.
The doctor advised us to get both of them admitted

In accordance with my experiences so far,
Life and death may have two different attitudes:
When my life needs to live,
My death tries to lure my life to elope with;

Today, when I connected the mob charger
To my mobile phone, the mobile asked me:
"Where is my original charger? "

The Best Poem Of Prem Nizar Hameed

The Dowry System

True to conscience, a bride is not a commodity of trading
Hovering on the lucratively flourishing marriage marketing;
Every woman is born with grace and dignity on the earth
Do respect her life, love her life, but never ruin her worth;
On the measuring balance, her life shall not be weighed by dowry
Wedding is for two loving hearts, not for others' Game of Cowry;
Recent news items of a series of dowry deaths confirm a notion
Yesteryears were of ignorant, but current age is of barbaric vision;

Sure, there are rigid laws to punish a post nuptial offender
Yet, the loopholes often make all the evidences split asunder;
Salient point one lacks is to foresee the greedy mind of such bridegroom,
To entrust a reliable source to get all details in advance to avoid the gloom;
Eulogy and flattering by certain corners must be precisely analyzed
May the married life of all daughters and sisters be loved and blessed

(Acrostic poem; First letter of each line spells out THE DOWRY SYSTEM)

Excellent piece. Water and conservation on a planet at least 72% water. Mankind's global vision always headed in the wrong direction.
