Lonely-life like the moon

Lonely-life like the moon

Lonely-life like the moon

Geometric-night is in hide-and-seek
between the moon and the sun
Minstrel-bird of gray-illusion is in enigma
In concealment, there lies the story of life
Sometimes lonely-life like the moon.

As much as I think, Ill write words behind words
I fail to move forward, the vehicle of suffering stops
A half-finished picture of Kurukshetra
is on the canvas of imagination -
At late night, the fog grows, I hide behind hopes
I get lost at the feet of the goddess of desire
in a meaningless afternoon...

(*Kurukshetra - A region in the Kuru kingdom, named after King Kuru, as depicted in epic Mahabharata)

The translator is a poet, essayist and literary critic, based in Rampura, Dhaka
