A Heart for an Eye

Purify me in your presence 

Amplify we with your Grace

For every stone hurled

a dozen roses

This slander

a million fold smiles

a heart  for an eye

water to simmer fire

skeptical whispers

returned in praise

pain unknown 

where I lives not

this is pure bliss 

please resume your lies 


Burn in the Flames of Love

Burn in the Flames of Love

Oh Fire Worshippers

Do you wish to burn in the flames of love?

Find the lovers in order to burn!

Their company shall alight the wick within

You too shall be set aflame

As Saadi said,

‘Learn love from the moth…’

In the realm of love

The souls are the object of concern

Gender is abolished

Reality is manifest

We only see, hear and feel love

Burn with its intensity

All else is dim

Anxious to become sober?

No shall be the reply.

Only pretend you are so.

Khaleel Allah too was set ablaze

Kaleem Allah witnessed

Habib Allah invited

He was and is One with the Flames of Love

The millenary fire of Persia burnt in Madness

Extinguished itself upon the arrival of its beloved

Oh Fire Worshippers!

Do you wish to burn in the flames of love?

Burn and become ashes!

Let heart remain lost in love





And when your senses are restored

All will seem a bizarre dream

Now relish its sweetness.

(Bedu July 09)

Fire and Water

Fire and Water

You pray for rain

We pray for fire

The land is dry

Our lips are parched

The earth has cracks

Our fountain dry


You pray for rain

We pray for fire

Prayers answered,

Rain has come

Prayers answered,

Torch is lit


We all rejoice.

Crops shall grow

Wisdom dawns

Rivers fill, rain continues

Fire burns; consuming us

Land comes to life

Our hearts revived

You eat and sleep

We burn night and day


Panting; we rush to the ocean

Our standard; Tsunami

She sets in

We enter like mad men

We dive, swim above and beneath

Float in peace

Fire sizzles

Flames extinguished

We enter a motionless world

A REAL utopia

Pin drop silence

Waves no more

No trace of I


The Sun handsomely  arrives

Seated upon His throne he shines

We turn to vapor

Instantly disintegrate

An awesome feat

A vanishing act

Vapors traverse up to heaven

Fill clouds with droplets of Love

Love falls as rain



You prayed for rain?

Thank fire!


Fiery Elements

Firey Elements


When fire meets with fire

wonders happen

when fire passes by the abode of her beloved

she desires to elope

when fire burns in anguish to meet her beloved

all senses are diminshed

she burns on cinders day and night

when fire achieves seclusion with fire

both turn to ash!
