Genocide, Lost Worlds

the silent ridges of humanity
drown the greatness of the Rockies
melting snow feed the rushing rivers
humanity never woke up
it was a summer winter night
the clash of two season
the battle of many civilizations

fleeting moments of flickering lights
light up a dead memory
emotions from dead streets
where we wandered searching
for a humanity lost
in the gutters of history
from the tallest mountains
we watched your kind
live desolate days and months

the silent ridges of humanity
but we still heard them
their emotions are unbearable
as the blood that flow on their streets
from their hand, from their brothers veins
they kill and torture for religion
they lost their way
on the serene nights
along the trails of the Rockies

makeshift huts dotted the trails
mysteriously hanging
between clouds and mountain edges
just like their emotions of compassion
rare but existing in their forsaken minds
Sagittarius sparkles along the trails
into the night we walk
never to return to the same moments
of carnage
its our wish and hope

i agree with miladysa ... and such was the impact tht i was thinking when can I flare up the passion in writing ... and then after reading I was like I am fortunate enough to be a passive reader ...

and from a pure reading delight "fleeting moments of flickering lights
light up a dead memory
emotions from dead streets
where we wandered searching
for a humanity lost
in the gutters of history
from the tallest mountains
we watched your kind
live desolate days and months" wah!

wonderfully written Siva

[vesper] i felt so sick when watching the docu, its unbelievable when so many people, the UN and US could have stopped it but they never did. They didnt ever authorize the UN peace keepers to interfere. Thx.

[Miladysa] Thx :)

[Alok] thanx bro. Its a mixture of two worlds, if you see rwanda, its rural sites are full of forests, and hills. i jsut juxtaposed it with the rockies and the US.

[Jeevan] thanx nanba, you would like the history channel, learning alot from there. Try to download from the net maybe?

[Mandeep] Yes mandeep, it was sad. you should watch it. Thx.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
