Poetic ensemble of Wahidul Haque
Anwar A Khan
Three things cannot be long hidden--- the sun, moon and love. In the context of romantic love relationships, romance usually implies an expression of one's deep and strong emotional desires to connect with another person intimately and passionately.
When man and woman genuinely love one another, there is complete harmony between them in body and soul. When love is expressed in its highest form, it results a perfect unity. The poetical work named "Esho Shashwata Nari Rupe", written by Wahidul Haque, an editor and translator, reflects the love and harmony of conjugal love and life.
Conjugal love involves the appeal of body and instinct, the power of feeling and affectivity, the aspirations of spirit and will. All of these aim at a union beyond the flesh, a union of heart and soul. The underlying message of this poetry book clearly stands for belles-lettres of conjugal love between two souls and its appeal is inspiring and universal.
The book is a clear manifestation of coincident of a couple's felicitous conjugal life. The poet tries to say in his poems that things may live and die, rise and fall, this everlasting love applies to all. The book reflects as a series of memories, slow songs, copper street lights dancing over the bright blue sky.
"Poetry is boned with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words," these words of Paul Engle are true to the case of poet Wahidul Haque.
The sweetest thing in all his life has been the longing to reach the beloved one, to find the place where all the beauty comes from.
The heroine in these poems is like a beautiful star and flower. Lilacs signify the first emotions of love and white lilacs symbolise youthful innocence. Lilacs also stand for confidence and pride. She is like a lilac to him.
Each poem can be considered as a symbol of love, hope and happiness. Each poem is a flower and this flower is also a symbol of power and represents feminine beauty. They also symbolise love and longing for a person and indicate dignity and respect.
The glow we feel from a woman who is truly confident and lovely is something reflected in this book. Let's not hold back--- true relationships are only realised when we are able to embrace support, love, and connection.
Wahid's poetry book is presented magnificently. The cover page poses a lovely picture of his charming wife. He solemnly dedicated this book to his grandfather and father who were the role models of him.
The Prologue of this book describes the poet's own thoughts about wife with brightness. Poet Asad Chowdhury has written the preface of this book praising him eloquently for writing such a nice poetry book.
When I read Wahid's poems of this book, it gave me a feeling that the poet wants to say to his wife: "If you were a tree, I'd be a vine. If you were a beach, I'd become the river. If you are a bee, then I will be the flower. Everything I do is so that I can be in your arms again."
A reading of Wahidul Haque's epic love poems on his romantic love and conjugal life reveals, "Tell the truth, or someone will tell it for you." One can read this book to get the essence of love and poetry!
