Atta Muhammad

The vale is secretly losing it’s saints,

I wonder what Kashmir is upto.

The Chilayi-Kalaan serves an open sun,

I wonder what Kashmir is upto.

Lal Chowk seems to beckon no hinges;

The Bund lets Jhelum pass already,

I wonder what Kashmir is upto.

The Dal craves for being still, that frozen metal of 1985 it was.

I wonder what Kashmir is upto.

The Chinar trees rustle no more;

This cold wind knows their love unsung,

The Hoopoes chimes a little less now.

I wonder what Kashmir is upto.

Now the nameless graves need snow,

To shroud themselves whole.

You’ll see no tombstones- thus nameless we dare say.

For as much mothers in belief,

Raise hands to one mighty- Praying for their sons to return,

To have them carved in homes again.

I wonder what Kashmir is upto.

And I see no Atta Muhammad to bury more,

Fury strikes in Kashmir timelessly- too often of men who thirst for blood.

I wonder what Kashmir is upto.

And Qur’an on shelves awaits to be read,

By who realize why this vale shakes too often.

I wonder what Kashmir is upto.
