3 poems by ASOKE KUMAR MITRA


A BUTTERFLY (1)  

Each night in your loneliness
A butterfly fluttering
Fly and fly away
A warm dream gently caressing

Over the river little waves nestling
Screaming violin
Filled with sorrow and tears
Treacherous unwanted

Nights are meditating without consent
Crazy butterfly knows your pain
Moon will take you will rock your heart
The sky will turn blue

You begged for love infinite
Boundless
Butterfly never returned
Plunged into your arteries



SOMEDAY (2)

Someday we will go
On a trip across the night
Where white lily blooms
Will sing a song of the cyclone
Two impatient hearts
Two vagabond heads
Folded in our pockets
And the sound of our voices

We are a full time dreamer
Ocean clouds only know our dreams
Voices of broken guitar and violin
Dark locks of the night
Today is Saturday, day after tomorrow
On Monday night
We are going for a poetry meet
Wordless poems,
What this night needs...



WINGS OF DARKNESS (3)

Wings of darkness left behind the shadow
Angry memories stalk
The flesh of winter
You did not answer
A secret river of love

In your sweat a fragrance of musk
You surrendered to the night of passion
Unburied corpses of desire in January cold
Your fulfilment and mine

Whispers of stars, the laughter of moon
A silent wordless answer
Endless wintry drama
Nights remember you

Our sorrows
Undressed
In the intimacy of winter
Moon is black tonight
Imprisoned between broken flowers
Memories burnt...

The poet is a retired journalist and was editor of "CALCUTTA CANVAS" and "INDUS CHRONICLE". He is a bilingual poet.





Darwar- e - Shayeeri (5)

Imran Rahman

O sake,
If your ghoongru breaks dancing constant
Let it break
Let the ripples of Yamuna
By the grave of King Shah Jahan
Come to a stand
The candle light like queen's life
Is about to end,
This night will also disappear
Breaking the shackles of 'Great bear',
Tell me a tune more melodious
Than that gives the sound of pouring wine
Into thirsty's ear .

The poet is a journalist
