Thy Photograph Tells A Tale

(Image Credit: http://islamonline.net/)


Inbetween the pages
A photograph swayed
Shedding colourful memories
Where love once bloomed
Under the mango trees


Far away in distant land
Photograph in a wallet
Sumptuous bits of homely food
He sought for his childhood


Under the pillow covers
Lay a photograph
Soaked in tears
There stood his husband
Smiling with pride
Somewhere at the borders

A Haunting

an eerie air
stuffed the room
a spooky corner
by the broom

he saw a shadow
behind the curtain
whose bloodshot eyes
tore his vein

as he stood
around the furnace
to calm his senses 
sooth his nerves

the fire ablaze
with a grotesque face
calling his name
a dark voice came

"Welcome my friend
To the house of Living Dead"
and thud he fell
with a broken head

A Fanciful Whim

It rained that day
On a haven's bay
A soothsayer with cards
Waited on a barren yard

Those questions on his mind
With greed was he blind
He met the sorcerer's eyes
Like fire striking ice

"Oh you boy
What do you wish?
The cards on a deck
Are awaiting your pick

"But wisely choose your pick
And do not frown
As your fortune lay strewn
By the candle wick"

"'Riches' all I want
Of world and wide
As happiness to me
Is what diamonds provide"

"So be it"
said the tarot wizard
"It will rain gold
Instead of hail and cold"

With excitement he cried
Hopped and danced around
Alas what he found
His hopes down profound

Sad it was a dream
A fanciful whim
He rubs his eyes
None hears his utter cries
