like Sunday’s paper

spreads

in starchy folds

across the morning,

driving rain

toward unripe shadows,

splashing clues

through trees of birds.

And where the purple

crocus blooms

I find a stick -

and draw wet hearts

in the earth.

The author writes of a love that only is available to him now in dreams……and has dedicated it to his mentor who his calls Mom, who has had lessons of  losses of love in her life as well.

Thank you Iqbal for this beautiful love poem….
  • My Poem of 18th November 2011
    for My sweet Mom Mary:-
    —————————–

    Tu mera dil ly gya aen
    Chan nu tak deyaan hoeyaan
    Apniyaan saariyaan sochaan nu terey val mor deyaan
    Main be aasaa,hanju bhariyaan akhiyaan naal
    Apney ander cheekaan nu dabaa rehya san
    Per tu menu vekh lyaa

    Tu mera dil ly gya aen
    Jad meri saari dunya haneyr ho gai see
    Tu menu apna sab kuj dy dita
    Ty thora ku hor vee
    Jad raat nu thand ho jandi a
    Tu merey naal souna aen
    Tu meri zindagi da matlab,
    meri zindagi da hasil ban janaa aen

    Aeni ujari ty thandi dunya ch rehndeyaan
    Meri rooh nu garmawan lai ik tu ee ty haen
    Tu merey tuttey dil nu joran aya aen
    Tu meri zindagi ny navey siruoon toreyaa
    Ty hon maen terey pyaar ch aan,ishq ch aan
    Tu mera dila ly gya aen

    Jad meri saari dunyaa hanhear ho gai see
    Tu menu apna sab kuj dy dita
    Ty thora ku hor vee
    Ty jad raayt nu thand ho jandi a
    Tu merey naal souna aen
    Tu meri zindagi da matlab
    meri zindagi da maqsad ban jana aen

    Tera hath merey hath ch hondeyaan
    Menu kal da koi dar nhi
    Ethey asi khalotey san
    Asi kadey vee nhi vichraan gy
    Tu mera dil ly gya aen

    Jad meri saari dunya hanher ho gai see
    Tu menu apna sab kuj dy dita
    Ty thora ku hor vee
    Jad raat nu thand ho jandi a
    Tu merey naal sopuna aen
    Tu meri zindagi da matlab
    meri zindagi da maqsad ban jana aen

    Tu sab kuj ban jana aen
    Tu meri zindagi da matlab,
    meri zindagi da hasil ban jana aen..

The Teachers Blackboard

The old seemingly lifeless blackboard,
no one who sees him thinks he really feels.
Made of tarnished slate and black in color,
finds very few who values his true appeal

A daily slave to the teachers fingers,
he knows more than he’ll ever show.
Is really such a lonely fellow,
though many eyes he has come to know.

Never does he ever complain or speak,
and yet cries tears that we cannot see.
For so much knowledge has he kept,
as he alone always holds the key.

Only to be forgotten as yesterdays lessons,
that might have set young minds so free.
But never by most was he rightly used,
because each day many still fail to see.

But the open minds of a few acknowledge,
the richness he shares that is theirs to keep.
If they consume a daily meal from him,
storing his knowledge in their minds so deep.

So one day in the future while looking back, 
On well spent time where degrees were earned,
Some will treasure this pearl of living knowledge,
Always giving thanks to him for what they learned.

Fencing off relaxation

Originally posted on the climbing bum:

With a lot of local wildlife areas in San Bernardino county being blocked off or bought by private entities, attention needs to be brought to the importance of land protection. Many of our greatest recreation locations are currently closed to the public, and these occurences are happening more and more often. Our responsibility in the outdoors to keep areas clean and available for all is a huge burden to bear. However, with a little though put towards our actions and the actions of others we can keep hiking trails open for many years to come.
