Sept 11th Tribute

Sept 11th the wholeworld stopped

To our knees we all dropped



That day we Americans paid the price

Thousands of          people

with the ultimate sacrifice



For all that day we live in a moment of time

When we all realized life

changes at the drop of a dime



They call it their religion

I call it a sin

When they targeted each

and every American



Osama Bin Laden the one we all    

Come over here and we'll set you straight



I think we all agree

everyone everywhere

The sept 11th attacks

were to much to bare



Dammit Bin Laden

you son of a bitch

One day we'll find your body in a ditch



But for now you hide

just like a coward

After you brought down

Our beloved towers



Although its hard

life must go on

In rememberance of all those gone



Still in the aftermath as life takes its toll

Ask us our new motto LETS ROLL!!


Author's Notes/Comments:

What a world

The stars are shining

Dragons are flying

People are sword fighting

What a world they lived in



The hungry and poor are stealing

Kings are Queens the commoners are fearing

History is what were making

What a world they died in



The stars are still shining

Military bombers are flying

People are gun fighting

What a world we live in



They lazy,poor,pressured, and bored are stealing

Their government people are fearing

History is repeating itself and we are helplessly watching

What a world we're dieing in

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I was like laying in bed one morning, not wanting to get up, and the first verse to this came to me... oh the crap i think of..

PERCEPTIONS

How do people perceive me?

This for sure I cannot see

Too gullible, too friendly or

Too cold, at times silly

May be it’s the way they think

Changing perceptions faster

Than a blink

How can one judge all that

In whose company you ate

And where you sat

What you spoke

And whose heart you broke

So complex are these perceptions

Ringing of truth and deceptions

Yet there is a moral; to this story

Do what one can do humbly

Be modest and treat people gently

For life rolls by at breath taking speed

A good name is all one does need.



Dr Shehzad Latif

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this poem as the idea inspired me while i was teaching a group of students. How do people perceive us and what do they think about us and what shoulld our aim be.

a wrist slit

Folder: 
2002

a bash to the head with a barrowed brown brick would only stain an elegant carpeted floor;



not to mention decease its precious historic value.



-



a dive from an over-passing bridge would halt the flow of evening commuters entering and leaving the city;



afterall, they can't be late for work,

they must all scramble to go to work…



-



a frontal blast from a shiny duel-barrel would be an obvious intrusion of privacy during the late hours of the night;



for waking the sleeping neighbors wasn't exactly the main intention.



-



but an unsightly thought of a wrist slit by the tip of a razor's edge would be,



a bit unsettling to say the least.



the sight of a vein exposed in a dimly lit room, draining its reddish contents in a constant rush is an event I shutter to think of.



-



perhaps,

there lies the alternative,

in a glance looking out a glass window on a sunny afternoon…



some rest…



or some time to reflect and a good meal…

BABA BUBBLES:
POEMS TO THE AVATAR,
UPAGURUS,
SAI DEVOTEES,
ALL
HINDUS,
AND ALL
BEINGS

By Saiom Shriver

SHIVA'S SNOW SCRIPT
…OM PARVAT

Shiva on Mt Kailash
with snowy script
has written the Om
in sacred Sanskrit

He has sifted flakes
onto recesses carved
by Parvati's prayers
and Tibet's holy scarves

http://www.kailashmansarovaryatra.in/image...our-package.jpg

NO ABBATOIRS

Inevitably the Avatar
is melting away every abbatoir  18

MORNING STAR

In lavender dawn
The Morning Star
A dewdrop in the
Hair of the Avatar

ATTAR OF JASMINE

Creator of all petals
is the Avatar
His endless aura imbued
with jasmine attar
He plucks
nary a flower star
.. but all blooms are His
.. near and far

The lullabies
He sings to lilies
and lilacs
become the leela
of their beemagnet
scents.

He lives where lands
are warmed
by the rays of Surya
..He dwells in the hearts
of all beings

APOLLOS AND APHRODITES

All devas and ganas
All apollos and aphrodites
are magnetized to His eyes..
and His Afro mighty.

POORNAVATAR

In the cosmic mirror
of the Poornavatar
described himself
the reflected pornagrapher
while in the same cosmic mirror
in the Poornachandra
another was sent
into poornananda

BABA'S GREEN ROBE

So often Swami
you are clothed in
orange..
1 day a year in white
.. but every day
around the world
you wear Your leafy
green robe..

BOBOLINK

The songs of bobolinks
are bright Baba Links
Each Name of Baba
Is a Baba ling
.. sweetsounding portals
to realms immortal.

VIBHUTHI AND COMMUNION

She was raised as a Catholic
and was a follower of Baba.
She knew that Jesus was
one with the Father...
and when she took Communion
she combined white host
and grey vibhuti.

DIAMONDS FOILED BY BLACK VELVET

tiny white snow flakes softly
settle and melt into the ultraviolet
sea of Baba's hair..

as He receives
into His infinite seas
.. the souls
who prefer His peace

(Baba said of His
attackers: diamonds shine
more brightly foiled by
blackvelvet)

PREMARGESHWARA

Prema
Marga
Premarga
Premargeshwara

Baba  is
The Lord of the
Lane to Love

PONDICHERRY CHERRIES

By the Po and Potomac
and in sweet Pondicherry
are many many varied
trees of cherry
each
with many scarlet cherries
.. each a cheery chariot
of future trees of cherry

They cherish and plant
the stones of Cherry.

(to C and P DiFazio)

VEGANESHA

Ganesha
ViGanesha
VeganEsha
Michiganeshwar

YOGANANDA

To him of unconquerable will
they said 'it's impossible'.
A few days later they
remarked it was improbable..
and then implausible..
and as they watched
the gathering mass
of his visualizing power

they had to say it
was plausible
and then possible
and then probable
until they finally
witnessed his
thoughts clothed
in reality,
his vision's touchdown to earth..
.. his spirit's alighting
power. All of his words
became flesh, enkindled
by Waccha Siddha, the mystery that the words of
the truthteller by angels are made true.

(to Yogananda, who
first brought the theory
of positive thought
to the US)
(Donald Waters said of him “My master’s visualizations were so
powerful their condensation into matter
was mere signature.)

STAR OF INDIA

The Star of India is
Within you.. said Yogananda to his follower
In meditation.
The Star which is India..
is the crown jewel of
all nations.

(Once Baba
in front of His devotees teleported
the Crown Jewels, those not yet
returned to the India from which
they were taken, so that they
could look upon them. Then He
teleported them back. dolphin research.)

EACH IS ALL

When we think of
Baba Sai Gopal
we think of
"Each is all."

Whenever someone
has taken a fall
or failed to
catch a homerun ball
or is paralyzed
with anger's blocking gall
she always answers
a hurting heart's call.

(to GOPAL, female
devotee of Swami)
(When L Hill who has
given away tens of thousands
of books and videos asked
Baba how he could love Him
better, Baba replied
"Each is all.")

IGNITER OF THE STARS

The BabAvatar
is .. the Author of all Action
.. the Architect of all Apples
.. the Arbiter of All Accord

How can GOD be accused of plagiarizing
that of which He is the source.. Attackers are like
The lion's mouth
in the fountain which claims
to create the water which
through it flows.

(Lahiri Mahasaya said
"Oh God who ignites the stars"

PORTAL TO THE IMMORTAL

He was criticized by one
for being a control
freak.. when he put
Baba's picture on his altar
for wanting to contain
the Infinite, the Name
within a paltry
square frame

Another accused him of
being idle
in the pursuit of
worship of idols

but he knew that
Baba's form
was a portal
to the endless
and immortal

SANDHYA TIME

Nyctitropic plants
toward the darkness curl
as in pain does my soul
into inward God unfurl

WORK FOR PEACE IS AN OXYMORON

Is there
a frame for Infinity.
Never slakes the thirst
.. the bitter
saltwater near mother earth.
.. never satiated is the
belly of many tongued Fire
.. Never filled the soul
afflicted with unGodward desire.
Never at rest.. the
mercurial mind.

Only the heart immersed
in the waters of God
is at peace.

(based on Baba’s
Discourses)

MANY VOICES OR ONE VOICE

Sometimes the hearing
of many voices is a symptom
of being possessed.
But hearing One Voice only
is a gift from the Avatar
.. a gift from GOD.

MURALI SARAH BRIGHTMAN

Her throat is the flute
of Krishna..

the ears it enters it
heals

Her voice is
Garudeshwara

.. its wings
lift us
to heaven

THE PROMISE OF THOMAS

Came the ambassador
of Christ.. in 58 AD
.. to Madras
.. the Apostle Thomas
.. that Shiva and Jesus
are 1... was his
eternal promise.

(The book The Jesus Sutras
speaks of Thomas going to
China after India.. In Madras
there are several million Catholics
.. increasingly realizing that
Hinduism and Christianity are one..
the Father and the Son are one)
(Ambassador Lalit Mansingh mentioned
in a talk in Cleveland that
Thomas came to India in 58 AD
and that India is the only country
which has had virtually no incidences
of anti Semitism.)

DAWN DARSHAN

Tier after tier of
clouds..in the sky
stadium wait expectantly
.. and begin to glow
with love as the Avatar
sun gives dawn darshan..

He causes all to rain
away our egos

SUI GENERIS

Sue is all generous
She is sui generis
She is SuGanesh,

AMMACHI

Ammachi hugs
with love all
The sun hugs
with light all
The rain hugs
with mercy all.
Trees with love
give food to all.

LORD OF CATS AND RATS

Brahma is
the Lord of the
rats.
Shiva is the
Lord of the cats.
But as Shiva is
the Lord of
all beings
Shiva is also
the Lord of the rats.

MIRROR KALI MIRACLE

The mirror is
cleansed..
it can no longer
transmit a mirage
.. now come only miracles
because it mirrors Kali.

Baba can heal every
nation.

America can become
Am Meera Kali.

BREATHREN

All creatures
are his brethren
All creatures
are his breathren
and he himself
while in the body
was often
a breatharian

to Shiva Bala Yogi who meditated in a cave for a year without eating before coming out to a gathering crowd of 100,000 in Bangalore India

BELLTOWER'S FREEDOM

Thought birds fly
in and out
of the mind's
belltower..
unchained to
the chiming
of any hour
as yogis
in the body
come and go
having realized
their Godly power

AVATAR ATTACKERS

As flies are drawn to dung
and crows to a garbage scow
As vultures are attracted by
roadkill
and butchers to kill sweet
cows
As the violent are drawn
to positions of power
and male lusters to
gynecology
and the obsequious
in Washington press corps
to fawn over money
.. so do dunglovers
flock to Avatar attackers

(this is not meant to insult
flies, crows or vultures.. creatures of God, atmic temples..
but to correlate their behavior to Avatar attackers)

BRANCHWEAVE

As the branchweave
is a grid through
which we see the sky
so is does the mindgrid
the One reality
distort and divide

JADE SARI

She saw on an African
safari
that to Mother
Nature had Lord Hari
showered
several brand new
jade saris

(to Jayati Gupta
whose poetry inspires
others)

BROOK'S COMMUNION

The little brook
prays for the communion
of rain
its chalice to fill
that it might
over
the thwarting
dam
to the sea spill

Eye goblets can't
contain the thrill..
joy tears swell and
into rivulets spill

BY VIBHUTHI SHIELD

By vibhuthi shield
are we healed
By His grace
do we yield
Only He the Knower
Only He the Field
Only He ..sudarshan
chakra.. can wield

CHERRY TREE FLAG OF INDIA

Cherry Tree
with blooms white
in the spring
and leaves summer
greening
.. turning flame orange
in the fall..
withdrawing to
meditate in the winter..

you remind me of
the flag of nonviolent Bharat.

DEITY IN THE TEMPLE

Krishna, the dark seed,
Icon installed
in the temple..
of the apple..
in its aperture
.. foiled is the deep brown
by the light fruit
..
He, the Deity, will quicken
.. when given the attention
of the sun, the rain,
and Mother Earth

CLEFT OF GRACE

In the deep forest
a secret waterfall
A Cleft of Grace
Cascade of 1000 Steps

.. heavenward
ascending staircase
down which grace
descends

COLORS

He was blue
because his friends
were called
reds and pinkos
by yellow journalists
funded by plutocratic
blackmailers
who had caused
brownouts to achieve
power
and taken over
corporations
with greenmailers.

But the gold light
of the dawn sun
inspired him
to fight again.

CUNNINGHAM FALLS

It splashed
It rippled
It sheetglassed
It soared
It babbled
It seeped
and it soaped
and it roared.
It pooled
..cascaded
It gurgled
seatoward
but at its purest
was bubbleless
whitefoamless

Soundless
it poured.

Cunningham Falls to the shakti, the healing power, Sri Sathya Sai Baba pours through Saiananda Shroyer

RAINDROP PARABOLAS

Raindrops make quiet
circles in the river..
current wands them
into parabolas..
lingas of infinity

SANNYAS

Baba said a true
sannyasi
does not stay
in any place more than
3 days.. gives up
all desire motivated
action.. and would
give his most precious
possession to any who
asked...

his home
his last dollar
his partner
his name
his comfort
his sanctuary

The poster stands on the
pier of the ocean of
liberation.. and turns
back.. not yet ripe
enough fruit to
separate from the
tree of attachment

TRUE

We do not rue
what is true

know
that Ganesh

FATHER AND SON

Jesus willingling drank

while Shiva Neelakanta

HINDU OCEAN

The most accepting of
all religions.. that of
the Hindus ..
is like the ocean which
accepts all rivers
though rivers cannot
accept the ocean.

SHANTISH

Shantish:
God of Peace
sh.. at the beginning

the silence of Shantish
God Who is Peace

to attackers of the Avatar who project onto Him, the Cosmic Mirror, their own souls and to the writer who is sometimes angry with the Avatar for the suffering in the world

GANESHA'S TRUNK

The trunk of
Ganesha does her
entwine
For she is
his valentine.

(to E&D)

DROUPADI ROSE

Busy bees chased
the bloom chaste
Though
they crawled on her
clothes
her petals unfolded
and those held close
still ever faithful

Whether her hue
is violet or rose
Whether she grows
in freedom or rows
ever to God
in waves arose
the love perfume
from the heart of the rose.

WHY CANNOT THEY SEE GOD

they cannot see God
because the blood they've spilled
becomes a thick curtain
because the lies they've told
weave into a veil
because the cruelty they've done
mutates to a screen
because the thefts have turned
into sunblocking clouds
because their disbelief
has become a darkening shroud

LAID DOWN HIS ARMS

Many in armistice
have laid down their arms
but few like the Saint
of Shirdi have been
able literally to lay
down their arms
(throw them in the corner)
at night.

RAM HANUMAN

He dropped into the
sea mountain ramparts
Only in maya
did he from Ram part.

(It is interesting
that the Seychelles
unlike other islands
are made of granite,
and not of volcanic,
sedimentary, or coral
atoll origin)

SATYA LIGHT

said the fruit tree
please don't
try to organize
my sweet fruit flies
.. each mango orb
has its own satellites
.. each fruit fly flies
to its own Satya Light

SHEEP IN QUEUES

as the Jim Jones people were programmed by
Vacaville California prison behavior modification agents
of the US government to self destruct

so are the American masses programmed
to stand in queues and PAY for 'flu shot' pharmaceutical cartel
POISON

.. so do fish customers

PAY FOR POISON POISSON

so do sheep go meekly to slaughter in some cases
and in others.. they quiver.. and go Baa Baa

those who rationalize animal eating say
that at least their appetite gave cows a chance
to exist.. however our consciousness at the moment
of death is the most important of all..
slaughterhouses send animals to God in a state
of terror, agony..

at least the sheep are chanting the name
of God, Baa Baa, as they go to Him

MOTHER BEFORE FATHER

In Sai Baba
Sai comes
before Baba
He is Divine Mother
before He is
Divine Father

GAYATRI MANTRA

when we chant

along with the Lord
of the Universe, Him
our voices His entwine

GARUDA LIGHT WINGS

Light curves out, spirals
out in spinning chakras

as she watched the sonic patterns
which accompany His bhajans

HARBINGER

Songbirds.. spring's
harbingers
are also Hari bringers
are also
Hara bringers

MAHAGANESH

Harm no being
no weed bug or tree
says the fatbellied
son of Parvati.
Harm no fir, elm or neem..
not mango nor Mahaganesh'
mahogany

GANESHA BIRTH

From between 2 granite
flanks of the Parvati mountain
rose the moon of Ganesh
she had birthed effortlessy
..

*Mahaganesh: Great Ganesh: Ganesh is God in the aspect
of remover of obstacles, creative intelligence, etc.

GRAY CLOUD BLUE SKY

the thoughts of the mind
are clouds of white or grey hue
the consciousness
of the self realized master
is a sky of blazing blue

SEA SOUNDS

Krishna's conch shell
Triton's horn
steamer's foghorn
but sometimes
the gull's cry
sounds forlorn

SNAKEBITE

God the alchemist
has turned her snakebite
into a healing antidote
as Lord Shiva's angry
stare
has filled all with
eternal shakti.

BOBOLINK

MANY LIVES

Many lives it takes
to go to medulla

TIMOTHY

The Gayatri's "dheemahi"
rhymes with Timothy

BABADEVAS

Sometimes Baba's devas (angels) would direct her
attention to an area which needed work.. with
a little star of light..

TRUTHTELLERS

When someone who
ever tells the truth
speaks ...
it is said
it is Sai'd
whether the name is
Meera or Ruth
or Cesar or Sayeed.

MASTERS IN DISGUISE

We are all masters
in disguise
.. our deceptive
garb.. clothes
of karma
... while
divinity flows
from all eyes

GOBLET OF SHIVA

Many will drink
from the chalice
after the water
of Cana has become
the wine of the wedding
feast..
after the wine has
become the essence of Christ.
But who can drink the goblet
of Shiva... who as Neelakanta
quaffs all the poison of the world?

THRONE

Baba You have a throne
in the heart of each being.

UNORGANIZED

Hinduism
like the mist and the sea
does not seek to organize
you or me.

to attackers of the Avatar who project onto Him, the Cosmic Mirror, their own souls and to the writer who is sometimes angry with the Avatar for the suffering in the world

LACE WINGED LITTLE ONE

Baba caused a tiny fly, smaller
than a fruit fly, 1/100th the size
of a house fly, to land on
a book I was reading in the sun,
on a particular sentence He wanted
me to note.

A FLY IN A ROSE WILL NOT STING YOU
ON THE NOSE

Mindful that Baba had said

social dilemma

Hold back my head

so I can see the vision,

of a world that is perfectly round



Throw down the views

that were held by our ancestors,

thats slaves are commonly brown



Open your eyes

to see the universe,

we travel around the sun



Let go of a time

when you were confused

there's nothing that needs to be figured out

when we can all work as one....



as an entity we'll break the system

working from the inside out



looked upon as a cancer by the authorities

the misunderstood children of society

unison never felt so good

fuck powers held

break through their propaganda shields



we'll burn the forests of media created terrors

and piss on the ash's that fall on the ground



take my rights and put me in a cage

try to hide the future



you can get one, but not them all

the seed comes from within



blind me so i cant see the world thats perfectly round



pick up your views held by your ancestors,

and paint my color brown



sit in your haughty hell where the universe travels around you because you're the minority now.

BLACK THOUGHT

                            Black Thought



Blood and death on plantations/

Deeper than imaginations. /

Broader than race/

Rage ideas at the base. /



Encased by misinformation, /

Divided the X generation. /

In a domestic terrorist nation, /

Energy wasting. /



Wanting black skin to be similar, /

Sometime white is more familiar. /

Then I learn it's the mentality, /

That determines rationality.

Brothers killing, Sistas prostituting for salaries. /



Us wearing Sneakers, Alcoholic signs, /

Symbolic images of slavery. /

For the gods of Thievery, /

The captors of our ancestries. /



I fight for the information, /

And believe nations are raising. /

To the call of a united world. /

If the ideology is just European we'll be hurled. /



Continuously into a limited thought. /

Black thought, I though we fought. /

For the right to be known, /

Other than by the skin on our bones. /

Look

Folder: 
Poetry

Look at how we're living,

Look at what we've done,

It seems our lives are ending,

When they're only just begun,



Look at all the sadness,

Look at how we feel,

Look at all the anger,

We're trying to conceal,



Look at all the hatred,

Look at all the pain,

Tell me: do we ever thnk of anything,

Besides what we can gain?



Look at all the suffering,

Look at all the greed,

We only care for ourselves,

When there are so many others in need,



Look at the missfortunes,

Look at all the fear,

Look at all the sarcasm,

In everything we hear,



Look at the world we live in,

How it's so twisted and strange,

Think of what we could do,

And think of how it could change.

Little Thing Called Life

Folder: 
Poetry

I'm every man or woman,

Who's faced their deepest fear,

I'm the accidents you survived,

And the rumors that you hear,



I'm all you're looking forward to tomorrow,

All that's happened so far today,

Anything to come in the future,

All the harsh things that you say,



I'm the worst thing you experienced,

All the good things, too,

I'm all those thoughts you have,

In everything you do,



I'm first place or last place,

Number one or number ten,

All the stories left untold,

I'm anything you ever did wrong,



I'm all those little comments,

That stab you like a knife,

I'm everything you go through,

I'm a little thing called life.
