The Plant of Liberty

The Plant of Liberty

Ujjal Mandal, India


A man wading through blood
holding the plant of enfranchisement.
It is none but an Indian fighter and
we are all overshadowed by
the tree unchained today.

Free

The evening lights are bright, 

The car has come to a stop,

The colors are different this time,

Shades of orange, white and green,

A quick flash, oh I held onto it,

A memory making its way through, 

A sweet stolen reminiscence.

 

 School walls adorned in colors, 

Merry of White uniforms, 

Green bands, Orange ribbons,

A paper flag pinned to my chest,

Flying high,...

IMAGES OF INDIA

In this cycle of life, I look to see a land

Where peace, love, and purity was created by God's hands
The smell of tamarind, incense and many other things fill the air
I don't care just happy to be here

The bull goes where ever, the dog sleeps in the middle of the street.
A family of five balance on a motorcycle defying gravity
The blind *guru listens to the clink of a coin.
*Aap ke lie ...

LAKSHMI

She got a hand for every one of her virtues
Showing goals a path for the soul
There is nothing she can do

Lakshmi
A goddess with a wealth of spiritual beauty
The moon will dance for her

Golden completion the lotus blooms for her
Not obsessed with what she gives or what she gets
Everyone loves her children are named after her

Lakshmi
She gives good luck with ever touch
Wisdom and p...

MORNING OVER AHMEDABAD

The sun pokes its face.
Through the gray haze
From the rough top
I sit in my own peace.

Morning over Ahmedabad
Above the sandalwood trees
The feeling that is only found in dreams

The baritone call of a waking bull
The buzz of a motorcycle passing by
In the market debates of the price of dates
The clinking of the spoon stirring the mornings' chi

Morning over Ahmedabad
It is much m...

Bangladesh

Bangladesh - Poem by Marie

Oh Bangladesh I loved you and the Bay Of Bengal 
my dream was to visit but my children where small 
To fish in Noakhali, then lay all day in the sun 
My true love said that life there was so much fun 

Alas like all things my dream came to an end 
The love that you send me was only to lend 
I never made him mine you see 
he returned to quickly to his land by t...

Indiawalmart sweatshop Bangladesh work

First person, singular, Agra, India

in a taxi

after 13 hours travelling

sleeping over towles that cover old seats

not asking ourselves what is underneath

arriving at the yellow entrance of the homestay

with flowers, when just outside

there is a cow with a naked kid on a side

what is more peaceful and wrong at the same time?

I can't imagine I can only rhyme

harmony, yes, is that touch on your eyes

In Mumbai

When the Sky is dark blue 
And the Dawn becomes true 
Just pray, same as I do 
May my wish touches you 

 

When sun rises in the Sky 
And the birds ready to fly 
Just remember what I say 
We'll meet, surely, in Mumbai 

 

When you stay lonely at night 
And you wear your lovely white 
Just be sure I'm always right 
You're lovely dream on sight

Kerala Visit

 

 

kerala is peaceful and beautiful 
in all cases and places 
Keralite people are so cheerful 
I can read "welcome" on faces 

 

The Green Carpet of all guests 
and pure nature to enjoy 
generous people happily smiling 
at any time of any day 

 

Life in Kerala based on love 
and clear hearts for caring 
I love Kerala more than enough 
I'll come back sure for sharing

NOTHING MUCH FOR MINORS BY SAHAJ SABHARWAL

"NOTHING MUCH FOR MINORS"

 

Minors are those less than eighteen, 

As they don't have knowledge in keen.

 

They don't have a driving licence,  

As don't have driving sense.

 

Minors are given just pen and page, 

Their life is not more than a cage. 

 

Holiday is not given even on sundays,

As their age is negligible for fundays.

 

Parents are worried not to g...

Holi by Aryana Issa

Holi by Aryana Issa 

 

In India, Holi is a festival of colours

But not only that it is a day of togetherness

No matter where you are in the world

You should not have a day of togetherness or being thankful to one another… and it goes on…

Everyday should be about that

ICE FLY

 

ICE FLY

How many pilots died and old aircraft lost when they flew over jagged snowy peaks in the remotest corners of the world? Doing a dangerous job knowing the risks and trusting in fate and luck to bring the through. Some never made it, there planes impacting vertical mountain sides in sickening crashes. Bodies lost forever, frozen in the time of death. Icily cold and otherworldly ...
