Two poems by Asoke Kumar Mitra

Stranger At Night

The joy of sipping morning tea
Two sparrows sit on a twig
Newspapers and unopened letters
Some mute gestures
Eye-catching headlines
At the distance a golden sunflower field
This morning a secret love blooms

On the road someday we will go
Impatient vagabond heart
You are a blank page at the end of a book
Your letters remain unopened

Leave the door open
Crushed down the letters
Let the night whisper  back
Become stranger again

Let The Night In

Tonight, a wordless night
Hours putting together
A short glimpse of dreams
Hanging from the wall

Turning twisting the bones and marrow
You wished to get to the bottom of me
A lonely heart who wants so much
Kissed by lonely autumn leaves

Mad of you, riding wilderness
Your dreams of a childhood garden
Picking pebbles from the mountain ruins

Stubborn wind refusing to let the night die...

(C) Asoke Kumar Mitra, 2018. Kolkata.India
