Where shall we be now?

30 days

Where shall we be now?

When truth is smoke

There is nothing to hold

Perhaps the poet is writing by the lake

Under the same serene crescent moon

As mine

Or is drowning in his red ink

That refused the lie

Carefully decorated on his home’s walls

Or perhaps has left for some other sea

That will not ask of or claim

His lost heaven.

30 days since Aamir Wani Kashmiri poet and artist last posted in social media — since Kashmir shutdown. Hoping and praying for safety of all.
