Fleeing centuries back
Fleeing war and violence
Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu
Asia-Europe America Africa
Nameless I in other’s land
Born in a country which is not motherland
Separated from native homeland
Still standing among the ruins of life
Birds are dignified even as they migrate
Displaced refugees are nationless
Sought asylum, believed sanctuary
From time immemorial and today
Mass exodus along the highway
A country of people
Cypher God overhead, tired and dead bodies under
Carcasses of culture left behind,
Difficult to navigate life in every step of life
Free tongues, less liberty
Resettlement possible, repatriation a must, but denied
Actors under guaranteed roof and dish
Selfish, scheming, liars, venal
She told wrecked of sea and soul
she told him sorrows are poems
she told him tears are green
she told him truth is divine
Even told about to abort is crime
but plan a conceive is truth
Put lion and lamb where they have to be
and the microbes as beautified scraps
Life sustains in painful justice balance
And ethic stood in tragic tension
Between strong and weak oppressor and victim
Overturn the messianic myth or immortal bless
Enter into commune of joys and sorrow
where human includes trees and fly and
Evil male plots for world domination.

Below happy home, Cucumber spreads along fence. Separation

it is only, it is for rain! Rain. Smiling police. No mega dam and
subsequent displaced people, women not to bear extra care work,
Indigenous dance,more nuns,less pleasure girls,Epidemics in lore,
sacred Ganges, Amazon with ancient glory,habitats are not threatened
Butterflies will rule the garden, Equilibrium of the climate and human,no king
no priests no Marshall, only motherhood here and there. Dreams revisited.
Thought was a matter-energy play burst into life through million of years and
Earth governed itself and ruled since time immemorial before species on stage
Men all on a sudden take over earth who is neither immortal nor endless

sin made for power and wealth at the expense of Earth creatures and human.

Reality is: fighting against mother to dominate women slaves nature wealth power knowledge
in the name of will of God .Knowledge is as essential as undergarments to hold not to exhibit.
And Virginity belongs to himself or herself. Untouched unused new and innocence.
Dominations were engraved in memories of her since ideas for taming are drilled in mind by him
Clio knew it. Celebrating Earth Day or Silent spring ignoring rape for resource,while men put her
