The day before

The day before

The news kept coming in, one recount more alarming and shocking than the other. It had all started the day before in Kerman in Iran where an Earthquake with the magnitude of 7.7 had caused several thousands of deaths and several thousands were left injured. Shortly after that followed an Earthquake with the magnitude of 9.3 in Shiraz, the deadliest ever in Iran, taking the death tolls to several hundreds of thousands. The Earth had opened up at Sabzposhan and severe landslides together with the Earthquake had taken their toll on the region. The Earthquake then hit the region of Bandar Abbas, causing tidal waves along the coast.

In Dubai, the tremors were felt by the inhabitants although the radio signaled that there was nothing to fear. Shortly after this news came out, Dubai residents felt tremors shake the city. It seemed like the Earthquake that had started in Kerman was following a zig-zag pattern as the radio announced that another Earthquake had occurred in the capital, Abu Dhabi. The tremors were slight at first with perhaps a magnitude of less than 4 but soon the Dubai residents felt the city shaking with increasing tremors building up another larger Earthquake.

Slowly but surely the tremors increased. It all seemed as if the fault that had opened up in Iran was now continuing its way under the sea. The Dubai residents had run out of their homes as the tremors increased but with the havoc happening outside they wondered if they should go back to the safety of their homes. The skies were filled with helicopters that were taking the ruling family to safety. One wondered where that would be however as everywhere in the city there were recounts of buildings collapsing and the Earth opening up.

A news crew was busy filming the disaster in the air using a helicopter they had hired for the occasion. The level of destruction caused by the Earthquake was unimaginable. Several towers had simply caved in, some others had tilted over and some were split in the middle with the top parts falling off like a peeled orange. Several fires had been ignited everywhere as a result of the falling buildings and badly protected wirings. As the journalists watched, the beautiful Burj Khalifa’s external glass structure shattered into thousands of shards before the top of the building started toppling over.

It seemed like this was not the last of the problems though as they could see a tidal wave forming at the coastline. They watched horror-struck as residents across the coastline clambered to the top of their houses in a desperate move to be saved from the oncoming wave. Some of the journalists shut their eyes in prayer as the wave crashed on the shore, wiping out the entire areas of Jumeirah, Um Suqueim and Dubai Marina as it swept along the coast and made its way to the middle of Sheikh Zayed road. Hundreds of cars that had been jammed in the residents’ desperate attempt to flee the area were soon overpowered by the seething water that rocked them to and fro before casting them against the buildings that were toppling over.

The journalists in the helicopter cried helplessly although they were normally hardened men. They thought of some of their relatives down there whom they would never see again. Some had wives and children who had surely perished, if not drowning in the waters then probably under the falling towers as so many of them had fallen like a series of lego. They thought of how they had come up here to report on what they expected to be minor issues and get at least some sensationalist recounts. Nothing had prepared them for the extent of the disaster which had ensued.

When the tremors of the Earthquake and its aftershock had finally subsided, the center of the city was a lagoon with portions of buildings protruding here and there. The outskirts were reduced to a pile of rubble and in between lay a slushy landscape of debris. The towers had disappeared and the Burj Al Arab structure was leaning more than the tower of Pisa, with only its top part emerging from the waters. The Burj Khalifa looked similar to what it had looked like during its construction several years ago. The top of the building had fallen to the ground, a large part of the middle had caved in and all the glass windows had been shattered leaving it akin to a giant colosseum…

Eons fleeing

Sense of bosoms fair

Multiplied

They divide

Opposite mathematics

Skewed analysis

 

Cryptic talk

Language compounded

Parables

Teachers’ walk

The island built on a rock

Between air and sky

 

Compose me

Miracles undead

My copies

Unending

Gushing out of scores of me

Tremors in my head

Portals guide

Between the twin worlds

Minds divide

In sections

My bodies’ intersections

As the joints shiver

 

Losing space

Dilating shrinking

Eyes blinking

Blindness sets

In the hollows on my face

No lives carved regrets

 

Stories flow

In the Gods’ secrets

Like honey

From the bees

I gather all on my knees

Token of knowledge

 

Life on edge

Wavering dreamtime

Spinning reels

Of events

The dramatic one prevents

The greater evils

 

Million spawns

Unaware games’ pawns

The beast yawns

As they live

The thwarting he will forgive

Ultimate goal kept

 

Stopping quakes

Tremors now lessened

He listened

As I wept

The large scale adventure swept

Under morrows’ rug

Double play

The battered relay

Within dark

Lies the light

Two sides of a medal fight

Liquid state fusion

 

Confusion

Reigns in the tremors

Within Heart

Lies the spark

Finding peace in the terrors

Disturbance of mind

 

Eye watch

Vigil of the night

Fervent words

As world fades

In blue skies that carry birds

Into lakes of tears

 

Angel sears

Its wings a kingdom

Burnt morrows

Welcome paths

We play relentless our parts

In stilted comebacks

 

Fear fiefdom

Deafening anguish

Of the meek

Gain polish

The revolving stone reaches

Where voice beseeches

 

Hone me slow

Time’s abrasive leaves

My petals point

Efforts joint

The waters revealing glow

Of my crystal core

I see you

Wherever I go

This world fades

Meaningless

Shades of light on everglades

Blocked by murkiness

 

The hours spent

Between days and nights

Embracing

Blue outcomes

The keeper’s voice grows in hums

Of the golden bees

 

The honey

Liquefied amber

Healing drip

Within grip

Of my folded palms I sip

The nectar of life

 

Coursing light

Sweeping my body

Mutating

Inner cells

Each change stops with chime of bells

Diligent process

 

Outside me

I replicate frame

Still the same

Yet different

Each copy contains its death

Like a stray still life

 

Frozen Time

Witnesses the flights

Nights embrace

Wane daylights

The tremors of settling in

Back into within

 

We paint shades

Of imagined happenings

Minds’ tremors

Giant playgrounds

Dissonance planted in sounds

Warped Universes

You tied me

To winds that shook sands

In deserts

Where sky lands

In burning temples that shake

With tremors now past

 

They slew fast

Emblem of the faith

More than spate

Less than fate

I offered Heart to relate

To sunken Time’s wheel

 

The motion

A picture of Age

Withering

Under suns

Thighs tightly pressed like stern nuns

Banishing the love

 

 

IMG_2534

 

They offer

Slates of repentance

The woes swift

Soul adrift

None in Heart for remembrance

Of miracle’s dove

 

She flew low

Battlefields hurled through

Lost ages

Time backward

The regained wings now awkward

Seagull in making

 

She calls me

A cook for all broths

Glory spent

In baking

As the light gathers the moths

Darkness now vanished

 

IMG_2530

 

Wishing hells

They forsake purpose

Throttle days

Whisper nights

We fly through the drunken plights

Lights fading in eyes

 

Winding wells

To bottom of souls

Discover

Light’s darkness

Silent breath a lone witness

Of body double

 

They shrink rhymes

Within my heart’s sighs

Dreamtime flies

Words gather

Liquid honey from mother

The Queen of new Times

Wane spirit

Comfortably tucked

Beside me

Breathing soft

Exhaling scent of amber

Musk and sandalwood

 

The tremors

Silently waking

The body

A snug spoon

Whispering under the moon

Night of no farewells

 

Inky black

It extended wide

Our slumber

Deep consumed

With heartbeats now soft resumed

Rhythmical slow dance

 

Play the track

Synchronicity

Brought alive

In our ears

Lost in a shadow less dream

Casting away fears

 

Hearts flutter

Sleep’s proximity

Sheer hindrance

For the love

Waking duty’s vibrancy

No time for penance

 

At dawn’s stride

Unabashed fingers

Implore sly

Rise and lie

There are landscapes to explore

Under moon then sun

 

Seek and hide

Abundance in me

Roam the sky

Stir the sigh

Wake the fragrance that lingers

In heart of gardens

 

Make me miss

The moments of calm

When we knew

Deep and true

The linings of fate and clouds

White and silver shrouds

 

Dreamtime’s kiss

The most soothing balm

Heart so blue

Stirred anew

Beats to new found melodies

Where soul is at ease
