Ashes to Ashes!

Ashes to Ashes!

Known the Long and short;
Those cubes and horse,
Wind and dust…fine and coarse!
Sea and Sand and river do plant;
Those Hills and mountain;
Dark blue whirling lifeless fountain,
Roads and passages beyond those thoroughfares;
Wilderness in the deserts – they stare!

Hummocks and hillocks and those old folks;
Privacy and secrecy, keys to your locks!
Fire and Coffin, Ashes and wood;
I am being rude – Natures food.
Moods and swings, those unknown wings;
Fire and Ice – peace and wind,
Mind and soul, daggers and gold;
Picture your heart or buy that doll.

Salvation and Nirvana for heaven and pleasure;
Erosion and Weathering for your leisure;


  1. oh, this is a beautiful blog....

  2. @Panchali Thank you Panchali. Happy that you liked my work

  3. ...loved it Shams!
    especially "Salvation and Nirvana for heaven and pleasure;
    Erosion and Weathering for your leisure;"

  4. Very meaningful Sam and I loved the last line, it has a lot of truth to it.

  5. This is a nice one. Your poem made me think in a different direction.

    "Wilderness in the desert"...

    People associate wilderness with forests and feel desert is lonely. Whereas desert has its own kind of flora and fauna. So your usage of words wilderness and desert gives me lot of food for thought.

  6. Both the picture and the poem, enthralled me :)

    1. Thank you Ghazala...happy that you enjoyed my work
