Rise up again

Rise up again

O Commander! rise up again; In this abysmal darkness, light up again. Every flower scented with thy dew Let the lovers meet, don’t make them wait Now, the blossoms will bloom on other gate. Every petal of tulip weeps on grave Thy foes admit, commander was brave! Oh! The pen bled, the words got sink […]

Autumn in Kashmir

Autumn in Kashmir

Life once resonated in full vigour There was romance in autumn songs Colours- Red, Orange and Brown Fired an inspiration to the ramble Pestering haze pierced by the peeping sun Lit a sparkle, winks and whirls Alas! nothing glittering remains of autumn Scared and terrified, it now stares Caught in the wrangle, heckled to coffin […]

Autumn of Kashmir

Autumn of Kashmir

Mountains are ready to get snow Holding on since a long time ago Greenery is to fade within low Commix the color of red into yellow Leaves fall like sprinkling cards Aesthetics of this scene captivates Breeze shrinks and gives the cold contacts Winter birds awake and vocalize Chinar leaves bestrew the valley Golden color […]

I was lost

I was lost

I was lost in the middle of a sea I don’t know where to go Like a ship I was sailing For myself I was wailing Though I was searching my destiny To find the smile and end my agony It was not cushy for me Because I was lost in the middle of a […]

Snowflakes

Snowflakes

At dusk, the fluffy snow whispered my ear, In the night, the bluff of colours the white painting dispersed my moon, the ink of solace. In the cold, the autumn trees and a panorama through naked scions curled branches, down with woe the leaden snow. In the midst of despairs demons wander and limbs rive […]

So wretched we are

So wretched we are

Where I live, Is a devastating place. So are its people! Where I live, Worthless are its fathers, Who raise their sons- Only to shoulder their coffins! Where I live, Hapless are its mothers, Who sing lullaby- For their dead children! Where I live, Is a wretched place. So are its people! Poet is researcher […]

Summer will return but he shall not

Summer will return but he shall not

Idrees Itoo The weary body, clothes torn apart His cheerful smile, I’ll forget not Deserted way and the bloody bay Summer will return but he shall not! Happily and bravely, though he fought Numbers from other side were a lot Rains poured and the hearts disheartened! Summer will return but he shall not! Grave was […]

Breeze of martyrs

Breeze of martyrs

Bijbehara “The Town Of Chinars” Leaves of Chinar ablaze. Blood streamed like another “Veth” of its roadside. After ablaze, Sandals on roadway and roadside. Scattered like leaves of Chinar. Mum about the next move. Silent, that no one to wear. Silkworm try to spin cocoon around. But the “Town Of Eagles” with eagle eye. Now […]

Virgin dawn to be seen

Virgin dawn to be seen

Though they have cut short your blooming youth Interned you in the womb of chinars The blazing chinars will engulf them And leave not a rack behind! In the insane lustful race to Conquer the ultimate citadel of power, They will stumble on hornet’s nest. Unleashing swarms Who will drag them to the pit where […]

Naseem Bagh

Naseem Bagh

One breeze of thine infatuates the soul Her every fallen crimson leaf makes a lol If thy spring supplies life to jollity Her autumn cherishes something in equality Alas! Unruly sun burnt her black hair Every bough humbles, murmurs head bare But every dead leaf resurrects with a rusty stain A revitalising lesson teaches to […]
