A Drop Of Dew

Poem By Khurshid Alam

A dropp of dew can enliven
the thirsty buds
can cause a new life
can create a reason.

A dropp of dew can drown
a village, flood a country
can cause tears
can push a people.

A dropp of dew can dry up
the sky, can make clouds
can thicken fogs
can blind the people
can end the reason.

My mother scoffed at us for ours no fault
She had put sweets from offerings in a box
To distribute the sacred eating equally among us all:
“All should have equal favour”, she taught.

An Inclusive India

Ajnabi is registered a Christian at school
And bargains exemption of fee by half
And all miscellanies full; and sings hymns
To Jesus and celebrates Christmas.

In Disguise

They take shelter in the auto rickshaws
in the daylight and sit in much calm
in much commune with the police on patrol
and invite the passers-by at Laldarwaza.

I’m Slave To Myself

I’m slave to myself.
I’m slave to my desire:
My desire is boundless.
I’m slave to my fantasy:

Weave Dreams Into Act

We sleep to dream
We sleep to dreams
We wake to act
We wake to facts.
