Leaves in the river, led astray
Away from the comfort of the trees twigs
The bond, long ago, began to fray
Neither knew it would end up like this
But soon the tree had realized
It was feeling a lot more energized
And then the leaf began to see
It ended up where it needed to be
The tree needed badly to learn how to let go
To save up its strength to face the snow
And now the leaf finally knows
It was always meant to decompose
To break down and feed another life-cycle of love
While the tree soared freely, watching high above
7 o clock
passing through river indus
look out there
from the windows of bus
golden sun moving on the water
against the cool breeze run
every thing is going out my way
silent and bare
the breeze is so busy it don't miss a tree
the indus highway is in its own sweet will
every eye was happy
the bell rang ....phone
first once , then twice then thrice
there is bomb in the university
what type of joke it is ?
its true !
first my heart freezes
i was trying to hold my soul
there was a explosion in my heart
i asked myself
who you are?
really muslim ?
with strong faith ?
i was convincing myself yes you are a muslim
i have a deed of creed
my heart was tossed up
in the middle it burned me
are you alright ?
yes i am
that sun and wind become the point of fear
my voice was turning back to me in echos
in the huge traffic
were grave for us
tell me who the hell is doing this
who is he to die me today
i curse to him in the worst places of hell
hey friend why are you going inside
for the sake of GOD lets go back home
because i came to read !
but many will cry ?
but then they will be silent !
reject the call of terror
he is heart less man ?
what can he do with our lives !!
we don't fear from him
he is the soul less hell
and we go
where the death stands
but thing i had seen today
everyone also passed through terror
HE WAS NOTHING
see me i am alive
GOD saved me
lets go on the top of highway today
i had also captured the picture of death today
it was a irritating ring
repeatedly asking me "who are you "
" what do you do "
today the winds are blowing better then ever
come to read
Blackwater rise up from artesian fountains
Upsurge from the provenance of earthen soul
Mingle unto a river of willow’s bend and sway
Rooted in boulders
As though empowering sown seeds mightily strewn
With intent a higher law's freshet flows
For to stream from silence in a satiating tongue
Rolling currents thickly bestow
A river of simple truth lay bare
A stream of random kindness betides,
Rivulets of unconditional love abounding
Rootstock birthplace coursing passage from whence
Unbounded rivers' silent reverie manifests
Rippling cadence immersing pulsing whispers
Unbounded rivers rushing deep and wide
Blossoming undercurrents gushing,
rhythmic ebb and flow
Verve undulating wholly alive
Genesis of soul marrow's enlightened shine ―
Wellsprings arise from bedrock of mother earth
A surmounting light leavens abidingly
From imploring water's flowing river song
To illuminate the beckoning pathway's bearings
divergent from thither and yon
Through which to portage
A way to carry back home in psalm
h.a. rivers ... November 4th, 2017
Red river run, down my hips
erode away my pain in a false sense of bliss
roaring river groans, silent to all but me
Red river runs, red drops let free
Blue bird sings as my only messenger
But small blue bird can't change the flow, no
Red river flows, I watch the river's reach
twist and turn, grow and grow
We want to tear in -
To taste all the juices
Knowing that now,
All too soon, we could lose this.
We want to drink
All the things in this world
Stop to breathe.
For the wheel
Takes and it gives
Some things will die
While others still live
When the day
Gives way to new day
We're afraid what we love
Might all fall away.
Still, the world demands
That we must let go
And let the deep rivers
In motion all flow
Dropping our leaves
Going back to our roots
What we know to be true.
Stop to breathe.
Before the next bite,
Stop to breathe.
