Do You Really Need Camera Vision To Shoot Pictures Without A Camera..

at one year old
her inbuilt camera
eye absorbs
what she sees
on the screen
of her mind
she learns
to freeze
she did tell
him sir may
i shoot
your picture
please .
nerjis asif
wont shoot
flowers insects
leaves nor
golden sunsets
birds sitting
on trees ..
man his fall
man his resilience
to rise his world
the street is now
her heritage
truth and belief
she will shoot
pain she will
shoot human
life and grief

Dr Glenn Losack Shot By Nerjis Asif Shakir 18 Month Old

my grand children
are gifted humble
born without
conceit unlike
some pressmen
camera is merely
a prop a part of zen
vision is bullshit
for a 18 month old
child who shot
her guru glenn
now she is
waiting for
him to come
to mumbai

The Camera Follows Us Wherever We Go

like a faithful
dog on a leash
is all we need
to know however
we demystified
the camera made
it human accessible
to what we shoot
we show ..along
with the camera
we too grow
on a photostream
at new flickr
overflowing with
pathos our pictures
flow ..3 month old
nerjis holds the camera
like a pro..we shoot
everything excepting
snow .. we shoot
humanity ..although
fast of reflex we
are slow .. decisive
moments we let
them go,,,being
human is our
motto.. live
let others
live a thought
we follow

poem dedicated to a friend in new mexico
who faves our pictures sukhi hontu

Ali Haq

Ali Haq by firoze shakir photographerno1
Ali Haq, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

Ali imaam-e-manasto manam Ghulaam-e-Ali
hazaar jaan-e-giraamii fidaa-e-naam-e-Ali
Ali is the master of all, I am the slave of Ali
a thousand lives are to be sacrificed for Ali
Note: Ali was the cousin and son-in-law of Prophet Muhammad. He is especially revered by the Sufi mystics.
Haidariam qalandaram mastam
bandaa-e-Murtaza Ali hastam
peshvaa-e-tamaam virdaaram
ke sage kuu-e-sher-e-yazdaanam
Haider [Ali] is the generous monk
Ali is the chosen one [by God]
[and] the leader of the people swaying in [God’s] remembrance
I am the dog of the streets of God’s lion.
kabhii diivaar hiltii hai, kabhii dar kaaNp jaataa hai
Ali kaa naam sun kar ab bhii Khaibar kaaNp jaataa hai
Sometimes the wall shakes, sometimes trembles the door
on listening the name of Ali, the fort of Khaibar trembles even now.
Note: During the fight for the Fort of Khaibar, Ali rooted out the heavy door of the fort and used it as his shield.
shaah-e-mardaaN Ali
Ali Ali Ali
Ali Maula Ali
King of the brave
Ali, [my] master Ali.
patthar pe alam deen ka gaaRaa jisne
lalkaar kar Marhab ko pichaaRaa jisne
[One] who implanted the flag of faith on the rocks
[One] who challenged Marhab and defeated him.
Note: In the same war, Ali challenged and defeated the celebrated warrior Marhab.
Ali Ali Ali
Ali Maula Ali
[The] truth!
Ali, [my] master Ali
jap le jap le mere manvaa
yahii naam sacchaa hai pyaare
yahii naam tere sab dukh haare
isii naam kii barkat ne diye raaz-e-haqiiqat khol
O my heart! chant this
[as] this is the name that is true.
This is the name that removes suffering
[and] the auspiciousness of this name opened the secrets of being.
shaah-e-mardaaN Ali
la fataa illah Ali
sher-e-yazdaaN AliNusrat Fateh Ali Khan - Haq Ali Ali Haq on
King of the brave, Ali.
There is no one except Ali
[and] the lion of God is Ali.
tan par Ali, Ali ho zubaaN par Al Ali
mar jauuN to kafan par bhii likhna Ali Ali
My body chants Ali, so does my tongue
[and] when I die, then write Ali on my shroud.
baGhair hubb-e-Ali mudd’aa nahiiN miltaa
ibaadatoN kaa bhii hargiz silaa nahiiN miltaa
Khudaa ke bandoN suno Ghaur se Khudaa kii qasam
jise Ali nahiiN milte use Khudaa nahiiN miltaa
Without the love of Ali, desire is not fulfilled
not even the prayers are answered.
O! slaves of God listen carefully, by God!
One who does not realizes Ali does not realize God.
basad talaash na ab kuch vus’at-e-nazar se milaa
nishaan-e-manzil-e-maqsuud raahbar se milaa
Ali mile to mile Khaana-e-Khudaa saa hameN
Khudaa ko dhuuNdha to vo bhi Ali ke ghar se milaa
Don’t search for anything now, match the eternal search
match the footprints of the desired destination with guide
to get Ali is like getting a house of God
searching for God too, we found Him in Ali’s house.
diid Haider kii ibaadat, hai ye farmaan-e-nabii
hai Ali ruuh-e-nabii, jism-e-nabii, jaan-e-nabii
gul-e-tathiir Ali
haq kii shamshiir Ali
piiroN ke piir Ali
The sight of Ali in itself is prayer, so said the Prophet
Ali is the soul, body and life of the Prophet
Ali is the purified flower
Ali is the sword of the truth
Ali is the saint of the saints.
dast-e-ilaa kyuuN na ho sher-e-Khudaa Ali
maqsuud har ataa hai shah-e-laa-fataa Ali
jis tarah ek zaat-e-Muhammad hai be-misaal
paidaa hu’aa na hogaa ko’ii duusraa Ali
“Bedam” yahii to paaNch haiN maqsuud-e-qaaynaat
Khairunnisaa, Hasan, Hussain, Mustafaa, Ali
Ali Ali Ali
Ali Maula Ali
[The] truth!
Ali, [my] master Ali
