When an AllPoetry contest prompted me with a 15 word brevity poem on ‘Disaster’, I remembered the recent articles of how smart people lost money. Falling for the age old trick of seduction, now digital, versed as “just a click”.
Tickled I was by an interesting AllPoetrycontest. With the prompt “When poetry meets science”, it is to be based on four laws of physics: (1) Newton’s first law (Inertia) (2) Law of Gravity (2) Theory of relativity (E = mc2) and (4) Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle.
Here it is as “Laws of life”. Enjoy.
Isn’t it horrifying to see banal notions of honour that were/are practised – Honour killing, love jihad, dress code? Versed as a poem titled “Honour”.
Torn and troubled by current happenings, I resort to word-smithing poetry to vent it, blissfully enjoying the process and staying in the middle.

Based on current situation in the world’s largest democracy, where ‘unity in diversity’ is fading, is this #poem ‘Ominous’. Inspired by a AllPoetry contest of poem (35 words min) had to be based on the given picture of the blazing ball in the horizon of ocean.
Based on the election scene in the second largest democracy, a poem written for a contest that should be written based on the picture in 35 words. Here it is as a #poem “Ball of fire”.
Colours don’t matter in the skies
A moon knows he is half black, half white
Even a crow knows that, not humans on earth
Death of loved one tears ones soul. For a mother to see her creation die, it must be torturous. In the case of recent #Hatras incident how must the mother feel? Impossible to know. It tore my heart. All I could do was attempt to describe this in the #poem “Grieving mother”. May God give her strength.
The nauseating din on national media exploiting the death of an actor and the horrific death of a young woman deftly suppressed expressed as a poignant creative in “Snakes in the grass” .
