Perfect Communication

79746153-the-old-kettle-the-water-is-boiling-boil-the-water-in-the-kettle-on-handmade-stove-made-of-cement

The kettle was clattering since

there was a clash between the lid and the boiling water.

And I was both watching and listening  

while I was mesmerized by the scene through my senses—   

a kind of supported communication with flowing feedbacks:

the clashing sound of the lid of the clattering kettle and my auditory and visual senses.


All the three forces were involved:

locutionary, illocutionary, perlocutionary forces or as some may call them “ACTS”.

They were overlapping—   

no mismatch,

no conflict,

no trace of any clash

There was a perfect communication—   

much better than the kinds the couples have in their kind of married life!

He Was Now Free

1_1_orig.png

Rushing his fences,

he was on the loose

wearing no clothes,

neither any shoes!


Adam in Eden,

Eve being hidden,

the sin committed;


Master of life,

free as a case,

Earth, his place!


Derived by him

all he was doing;

Scriptures written,

Soul was bitten,

SNAKE, quite hidden

Religions smitten!

THE Women

sexual-abuse

Passing the buck,

he was standing there

condemning her

for what she was not guilty of.

She was a shrinking violet

asking for his mercy;

But he went stir-crazy—

blaming her for HIS madness,

And then,

she represented many women—

those in the corrupted era!

A New Religion

iStock_000050389370_Large.jpg

Believing in a religion which recommends no oblation,

Charity in its heart without any religious obligation,

Homilies, not about god but about avoiding perdition,

Hell is not destiny; there is no sign of damnation,

Free of any accusation with an already given salvation,

No need for priests, surplices, choirs to guarantee redemption, 

No mumbling mass-preachers to propose any exemptions,

Enow is enough, no archaic language to make a text a scripture,

No abbey to accommodate lubbers with hanging pictures,

No monastery, no cathedral, nothing of a cloister,

No bread & wine, no blood, no chalices to bolster,

No special clothes or sacred dishes, no particular hollowware,

No need for any knack of praying to stand as a good follower,

No rattling kernel in the mind to look for the non-vanity,

My religion cares about nothing but only humanity!

Burning Reality

forest-fire-991479.jpg

Dark fluid of moral indignation

began coursing through my brain.

Ideas hammered into the head

flashing precarious traces of beliefs

correlated with their indoctrination

made me sick of such a nation.

I was hopeless

in the middle of VOID

Salvation a question

Paradise a dream

Hell was flaring

Me, burning in calenture

enfeebled by the thoughts

AND Their Presence!

My Suffering

 

ThinkstockPhotos-489544923.jpg

A sentient being

with logical arguments,

having disinclination to obey,

yearning to resist,

subjected to evolutionary imperative—

against imaginary supreme being

who purports to be true

while goaded the evil,

I stood in the bleak court,

judged by indisputable standards

and then I was consigned to jail!

After a short respite,

I started to write—

poetry was on top—

this time without rhyme.

I wrote about my cosmos.

It was a verse not of the sort,

of my own suffering and the court;

It was as brief as what you see

The poem became my own BEING.

Peace Expiry

500x500

Scriptural literalism
Intolerance of diversity
Mistrust of any -ism
Disregard of humanity


Division of facts & values
Rupture in our thinking
Conceding social vacuums
Emotions without linking


All result in the confusion
Being called rational inquiry
which is nothing but delusion
leading to peace expiry.

Conflict

World-Religions

There is always a conflict
between certainty unwarranted
and the religious hysteria


Daesh, ISIS, whatever the name!
Christianity in the past
Zionism at present
are miraculously sanctimonious.


Intellectually credible,
Personally transformative,
the absence of SELF
has the reducible effect;
from ME to us
from us to BEING


NOTICE:
Be a human BEING

Curious Lopsidedness

mutual-support_bwc5820780

A lopsided balance between heart and mind
One marked,
the other unmarked
One has an elevated status,
the other dependent
One professional in what it does,
the other messy
One sensible,
the other sensitive
One’s end is brain death,
the other’s, heart stroke!
But none of them
Can live without the other
It is a curious balance while lopsided.

The Old Lonely Modern Man

adc66450135959.58c8490d3f523

Sitting in his motel room,
Eating his brunch,
He was bad-tempered.
Last night he had lots of chortles.
While he was sleepy,
he checked his urinalysis
and in the smog of his eyes,
it was Okay.
The whole day till brillig
or four o’clock,
he was gimbling:
making holes like gimlets,
though he went gyre for sometimes
he was mimsy-flimsy and miserable—
He checked Twitter,
got twitterific,
went into Facebook,
no face, no book,
but some pics and texts,
modernity he hates.
He got back to bed
to listen to his chortle
while the rate of breath
lowers down to temporary death!
