Afzal Shauq’s poetry brims with the spirit of unity and love... Aasifa Sheikh says

PEACE, THAT FORGOTTEN WORD / Aasifa Sheikh, New Delhi

PEACE, THAT FORGOTTEN WORD



'The way of peace is the way of love.

Love is the greatest power on earth.

It conquers all things.'



PEACE PILGRIM



The night descends and she sits, crouched in a corner of a forlorn shack. Her cheeks gleaming with tears, her mouth parched, her stomach hungry. Orphaned, distraught, a little girl…

Syria reconciliation proposal

 
 
Dear Colleague,
 
    The recent use of chemical weapons in Syria (by whatever faction - government or armed opposition) has increased tensions within Syria and its wider region.  There are real possibilities of an escalation of armed conflict unless creative steps for conflict resolution are taken both by governments and civil society as structured in Non-governmental…

Warrior Poets

a quote:

What Is a Warrior?

ANYONE WHO IS INTERESTED in hearing the dharma, anyone who is interested in finding out about oneself, and anyone who is interested in practicing meditation is basically a warrior. The approach of cowardice is looking for some tremendous external help, whether it comes from the sky or from the earth. You are afraid of actually seeing yourself; therefore you use spirituality or religion as a seeming way of seeing yourself without looking…

PEACE FOREVER YOUNG

I pray today that there will be peace That peace will be a lasting breath inside of all living That peace will be deep breathing That peace will wing out in every direction traveling through the many colored spirals of time and space

I pray that stones will speak and wind will listen listing the heavy properties of stone into the warm light…

TIME TRAVELERS

As we travel through this life,

we should step softly. Leaving

precious footprints as we go.

Sprinkling positive thoughts

in the sands of time'

As we look out over the sea of

suffering humanity, extend a

hand to the needy. Wrap strong

arms around them., embracing

from life's storms.

Strive to bring peace and harmony

to all men. Ban together as a people,

as the…

NUMBERS 11-13-2010 dedication AFZAL SHAUQ

 

Dreams of

a lifetime

crashed,

vanished,

caused by

a roaring

thunder.



Falling

around

her feet

lying in

pools  of

tears

freshly

cried.



Numbers

11-13-2010

remain

forever

etched

on the

pages of

her heart.



Eons

flashed

the past

came

rushing in,

his face

appeared

over and

over again.



A silver

cord

stretched

to the

WIND WORDS

Whilst the wind blows

thought-losing words blew along

reflecting on their own monologues

knowing more than they say

would stay silent

if words understand

what their contents is

 

But who knows what words…

NOTE OF THANKS

I say thanks to those of my friends and fans, specially to Christy John, Kathy Bell and others who have always been supporting and encouraging me to go ahead to get the targetted global peace to meet by promoting my SAYS which are found in poetic forms... I 'm really nothing without my friends whom I consider my true cousins being the children of Adam's family... Sure, I will also be adding my new poems and ideas here in this site but this message only relates to those who are closer to my…

DAY-DREAMS

your smiles



wrap me



in my daydreams





I feel



I am part of your dreams



while



your smiles are soul tingling



as I see



with my open eyes

NOTE:- Smile counts a lot and I strongly believe that if the smile is a bit friendly, it may bridge up the distances between far living hearts. So instead of occupying the…

ILLUSIVE DREAMS

when I close my eyes

they haunt me



in my way to sleep

KINDRED SPIRITS

like body and soul



we are with a question



who you are?



and who I am?





unless and until



the question



of eternity lingers



and stands like



a pause



we get awareness



but lack



and miss



our second half



always



to be answered



and we are never tired



to find…

SOLICITED DESTINATION

I could not find myself

with no pause

TO DISCOVER MYSELF

I forget myself



when she stares at me



as she is with amazement



and wants me to find



myself



in her eyes



I know where I stand



when she is with questions



I know



where I can be?



and where I am?



as I live



just in her eyes!

FUKUSHIMA – A Protest Monologue

There is a scene in Bram Stoker’s Dracula which is, for me, the most frightening. It is not a depiction of the vampire’s infernal, blood lusting eyes, of the vampire’s gore dripping fangs and death mask fixation, or even of the vampire vertically scaling the wind tortured, towering walls of Castle Dracula in guise of a biomorphic demon, at once inhuman and reptilian. The situation of ultimate, paralytic terror is one in which the nosferato, the unnatural fiend, enters a room silently through a… Continue
