Distance [Poem]

Corridor to our distant apartment, La Cite, Montreal

An illusion, never recognised

A fact, never acknowledged

From afar, most things look beautiful

Close by, they become actual

Reality is made the most distant

Desires are made near real

Not seeing what’s ahead

Believing what never lies ahead

We see what we believe

Hardly believe what we see

Illusion becoming ‘a’ life

Life becoming ‘an’ illusion

Pal [Poem] – in Urdu

Montreal Parcs, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Har pal har lamha hai khaas
Beshak sirf ye hi hai humare paas
Bhool jate hain har pal ka hai akhir
Phir ata hai ek aur naya

Bus ek waham hai ke hai bohat
Asl tou kuch nahi
Bus hai ye ek pal

Jaante hain par samajte nahi
Maante hain par sambhalte nahi
Kya karo ge in ranjishon ka
Khushyan waise hi kam hain

Kya pao ge lar ke jagar ke
Hasil jo hona hai wahi hai
Pal pal ki keemat hai bohat
Har pal ka jua khelte hain har waqt

Jeene main bhi maza hai bohat
Marne ka kyon soochte ho har waqt

Zindagi tou hai, jo hai sab se khaas
Bas hai ye ek pal humare paas

Nothing [Poem]

Pic captured on one of our excursions in Sydney, Australia

There he was standing
And then he was not
I ran towards him
But it was my imagination
I stood there awhile
But I saw no not
Wondered what it was
Found nothing there was
The wind ruffled my hair
Sound of silence crept over me
I stood there
But I saw nothing, and everything!

Mirror [Poem]

‘The Rocks’ Sydney, NSW, Australia

Mirror mirror on the wall
What i see, is that all?

Should I believe in what I see?
Should I delve into thee?

Is what I see, full of deceit?
Is what I see, full of belief?

I know not who I see
I know not who I see not

A mirror does not lie
A mirror does not see

On face value we are all great
Intrinsic value is what matters

I think about one thing
I talk about another

Such is my nature
My nature is, but nothing

Beyond [Poem]

The Observatory, Sydney, Australia

I live alone
I should have known
Bright were the days
I thought were dark
I looked just beyond
Didn’t see now
Seeing is not looking
Living is not same as believing
Ahead saw the way
Had to choose a pathway
Discouraged by the own
Belittled by unknown
Marched forward alone
To be today alone

Raasta [Poem] – in Urdu

Raasta tha saamne
Chal diya main bhi
Saare ja rahe the jahan
Main bhi chal diya wahin
Jaanta na tha jaonga kahan
Par phir bhi chal diya wahan
Chahat thi ke karon kuch doosra
Nahin tha woh jana hua raasta
Murh gaya main phir sanate ke aurd
Jahan tha na koi jaanta, nahan shor
Kabhi dhoop ki garmahat
Kabhi chaon ki chahat
Khojne laga main mujh ko
Mila mujh main se koi aur
Maarna bhi para aur rona bhi
Akele main koi kahan poochta
Jab nikla us kinare par
Pata chala kitna bhari hota hai pani bhi
Main bhi bacha tha kabhi
Main bhi hansta tha kabhi

Dil [Poem] – in Urdu

Sherbrooke Street, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Dil Akhir tou kab samjhe ga
Guzra hua waqt nahi ayega
Ache the woh din bohat
Aaj bhi bura nahi
Dil tou kab samjhe ga
Therna mat ek jaga par
Chalte ja dhoonte jahan
Ek jaga per nahin rukna
Lagta hai bus yehi hai manzil
Thehrao hai, hai aage sahil
Rukna nahi kuch bhi hojaye
Barhte jana, khoojte jana
Pyaas nahi kam hoti pani se
Aag nahi bhujti bhujane se
Sabr hai aaj, najane kal kya hoga paas

To Live or Exist [Poem]

Picture captured on one of our many NSW, Australia road trips

So much to do, to feel, to believe
There is a limit in a day, just hours away
Minute by minute I want to
Every second ends in wanting to
Winter is here to be
Summer will be here soon
Spring will bring joy
Autumn will give warning
White will be a color to enjoy
Black will not fall behind
Red will mushroom from the unknown
Yellow will be shining bright to be known
Green will add richness to this world
Grey will dampen some spirits behind
Rain will smell sweet but sour
Dryness will not be far
Taste will be missing
Food will be just for living
Gone are the days of happiness
Or are they?
Find what is it for you
To live or to exist?

I want to be [Poem]

Vieux Port, Montreal

I see beyond, I can’t see
I see behind, I can’t see

Present, I see but I don’t;
Present, is to believe

Past is gone, nothing to see
Today is what to believe

I am alone, I am one
Friends where are you? when I want one

I pick myself, to go beyond
I find myself, in another bond

I want to be free
I want to be me

Yet I am, here to be
Me, is what I want to be

Five senses / Five questions [Poem]

Our first winter walk in Plateau Mont Royal, Montreal, CA (Dec 2021)

What I could see, is what it was not!
I could not see, what it was?

What I could hear, is what it was not!
I could not hear, what it was?

What I could taste, is what it was not!
I could not taste, what it was?

What I could touch, is what it was not!
I could not touch, what it was?

What I could smell, is what it was not!
I could not smell, what it was?
