New poems


  • the world is no fun
  • for a smart one
  • who wont fall for
  • slippery words
  • uttered by devil’s in disguise
  • or drooly wooly heads
  • no matter how clearly they say
  • that they dont give a hoot
  • to their drooling or wooing
  • they just dont get
  • that some women are too smart
  • to fall for idiots like them

  • I bought this guy
  • sleeping beside me
  • snoring like trumpet
  • paid a whole lot of money
  • and jewels, gifts for his folks
  • but he treats me like a dog
  • I work from dawn till late at night
  • and all he and his folks do
  • is find faults in my looks
  • and my works and everything else
  • that is somehow related to me
  • things may take a worse turn
  • if the being inside my womb
  • turns out to be their third
  • female girlchild
  • I guess I bought the wrong slave..

  • Ah my daddy thinks
  • its a better use to spend
  • money on cheap liquor
  • than to build a toilet
  • for his female family folks
  • and our government is too busy
  • piling up money in swissbank
  • to give a hoot to their votebank
  • so we sneak out
  • in the dark of night
  • to the fields or desolate places
  • to save our dignity
  • where monsters often wait

  • It’s so hard
  • to grow up in the world
  • as someone everyone
  • will take for granted
  • or will abuse
  • born in a small hut
  • in the darkness of ignorance
  • where women grow up early
  • feeling everyday as a burden
  • on their impoverished family
  • where predators lurk everywhere
  • inside the home and out in the roads
  • and the hands that torture them most
  • are often female hands, not male

  • horse

  • A wounded horse, crippled spirit
  • a heart full of love
  • who fought for him
  • refused to give in
  • to allow the ready hands
  • to push poison in his veins
  • in which blood still ran warm
  • a long, patient war began
  • and a year went by
  • now that horse stands in the meadow
  • waiting for her to ride

  • howling wolf

  • late at night the breeze rustles his fur
  • shining like wire under the silver light
  • of the moon up in the sky
  • he calls out to the moon
  • come down and catch me if you can
  • and then sprints forth
  • looking up from time to time

  • kitten in snow

  • you cant see me
  • no you cant
  • now be a good girl
  • turn your back
  • and walk towards the porch
  • so i can pounce
  • and scare you to death

  • monkey

  • come join us
  • forget seriousness
  • forget all responsibities
  • and also sanity
  • and have some real fun
  • who cares if a thing or two
  • are broken beyond repair
  • or a man or woman
  • gets hurt and swears
  • come join us for a while
  • lets have a ball

  • Thursday paints 19.6.14

  • sinking ship 4.6.14

  • water rushes through
  • its mighty body becomes heavy
  • slowly it sinks
  • water all around it
  • it goes deeper and deeper
  • fishes gather around it
  • for a look
  • a mermaid swims in
  • rummages the makeup box
  • left behind a maiden fair
  • as she hurried off to shore
  • she playes with the lipstick,
  • the eyeliner, mascara
  • not knowing what they are.

  • beautiful eyes
  • like a pair of stars
  • in morning sky
  • dreams simmer in them
  • as they look down
  • a feeling pure divine
  • permeates the heart
  • when one looks into them
  • they can see through souls
  • but they dont care to see
  • for they see things beautiful
  • which human eyes fail to see
  • —————–

  • so many times
  • I begged God for so many things
  • now standing at a point of life
  • where when I weigh I can see
  • I got almost nothing
  • that I ever asked for
  • the careers, the boyfriends
  • the talents and other things
  • none at all
  • some were just not meant to be
  • and others, well I am glad
  • really glad that she ignored me.

  • young hearts will love
  • crave for the sweet things
  • the old brain will try to
  • stop them from making mistakes
  • that is the way it should be
  • dont build jails around them
  • guide them to the right path
  • in the end, let them be
  • if they dont want to listen
  • share your views, wisdom
  • if they are still sure
  • that they dont want them
  • let them be
  • they will fall and get up
  • finally they will know
  • who was right and who was wrong

  • his paints stroked the canvas
  • with love of a blessed soul
  • angels and mermaids
  • took form on whitescape
  • they took their wings
  • and touched the hearts
  • of those who could feel
  • the world of his dreams
  • then his dreams became theirs
  • in different parts of world
  • a separate flower bloomed
  • from his dreamseeds.

  • Love is an oasis
  • that needs rain
  • from time to time
  • from two hearts
  • to help it combat
  • the constant thrashing
  • of desert around it
  • no matter how deep it is
  • how much full of love it is
  • without the constant nurturing
  • the desert sands will win
  • so when two lips exchange vows
  • the path of love starts,
  • the happily ever after
  • is build brick by brick
  • as they move along that path.

  • beating your own drum

  • Beating your own drum
  • is not vain in present times
  • if you have the skill of drumming
  • and a good group to support
  • it can take you to heights
  • where truly talented may not go
  • and if you have good business sense
  • nothing will stop you
  • from reaching your highest goal
  • Seen too many liars
  • proving themselves saints
  • with the right publicity
  • and seen too many innocents
  • being branded crooks
  • with right smearing campaign
  • we live in a society
  • that pursues “images”
  • not the real guys.

  • —————————–
  • humble confidence

  • I try to fly, build my own path
  • not because I am special
  • but because I love to be myself
  • so I change a little here
  • and a little there
  • and create my own path
  • to fit my whims and fancies
  • there is no arrogance
  • its just humble confidence.

  • ———————————–
  • foolish envy

  • a fool’s envy, full of insecurity
  • that shows up in every action
  • does not annoys its target for long
  • sooner or later it starts to amuse
  • those spiteful words, lies, malice
  • make the target feel how fool
  • the heart full of envy is
  • that in place of living, relishing life
  • stalks and seeks the harm of others

  • —————————-

  • dont mourn me, love me.

  • If you have a flower for me
  • give it to me now
  • dont place it on my memorial
  • when I am gone
  • If you have a sweet word for me
  • say it now
  • dont say those words wet with tears
  • on my lifeless corpse.
  • Lets celebrate others when they are alive
  • that is how it is supposed be
  • that is how it should must be.

  • bird 11.5.14

  • When the wind carries him high and low
  • ruffles his feather gently
  • or controls him like a feather
  • does he feels fear like we do?
  • when scary things happen in sky?
  • does he relishes how he can fly?
  • while so many of us can only see?
  • wonder what goes inside his heart,
  • when he sails in ocean of breeze.

  • fawn 11.5.14

  • he stops frequently
  • watches all around
  • for any sign of danger
  • so he could flee
  • carried by his nimble feet
  • that could kiss the breeze
  • hooves touching the earth
  • just like a quick kiss

  • snakedemon 6.3.13

  • tired of running
  • chased by wolves
  • the little goat stopped
  • by the woods
  • two burning eyes appeared,
  • “Come with me… to my lair,
  • the wolves are scared of me,
  • you see I have the power
  • to crush down every foe.”
  • the little goat looked at him,
  • a slithering creature
  • just like rope
  • and followed him to his death
  • thinking he was too big
  • for his mouth.
  • Believing he could outrun
  • his enemy without legs.

  • solitary sunrise 121212

  • You and your beliefs
  • may be perfect for you and so many more
  • but that will never mean
  • it is perfect for everyone
  • so why do you bother someone
  • who prefers to be on her own
  • for long hours or maybe lifetime
  • singing to her ears
  • how useless life is
  • without a mate, a kid or a family,
  • does it ever occurs to you,
  • she may think you are
  • an extremely annoying pest?

  • This is 450th anniversary of Shakespeare, I was reading some posts on the fb site about shakespeare and wondering, did he ever imagined that people will adore him even after this many years.

  • We Bengalis have an apple of eyes too, Tagore, he is one poet who can be called a miracle, I really dont know how could he manage so many diverse moods so perfectly. Its been years since I have been trying poetry and how I wish I could write “one” poem as magical as him, forget about by dozens.

  • Well today is his 153rd birthday, one of my celebration days, because I certainly am absolutely grateful to God for him and his poems, they have given me so much through these years and will.

  • Maybe, God can think about giving us another one, at-least someone half as good as him.

  • The thunder clapped
  • the sky opened
  • rain came down in torrent
  • small rivulets

  • on sunsets and suncovers
  • created the illusion
  • of a tropical storm

  • red autumn tree 131212

  • like snow-covered hills
  • scatter down on earth
  • dancing in autumn breeze
  • white grassflowers.

  • sailing boats 3613

  • tranquil ocean lies still
  • sailboats in thousand coloured

  • mingle with salty breeze
  • perfect escape
  • from sultry summer heat

  • saras 19.3.13

  • the river breeze cool, sweet
  • gently ruffles the trees
  • a pair of birds wait patiently
  • for the glimpse of food

  • river breeze caress his body
  • covered with beads of sweat

  • girl on beach 18613

  • the waves come and waves go
  • life flows
  • when the weather is rough
  • their roar, their height
  • menacing, intimidating
  • crushing everything in path
  • will seem to be zeroed
  • on you and your world
  • then with time they will
  • simply ebb away
  • like they were never there
  • this is all life is
  • dancing or weeping
  • on a seashore


  • ==================================

  • in the ethereal realm
  • magic creatures dwell
  • unseen, unheard
  • sometimes late at night
  • away from human civilization
  • sometimes
  • a singular eye sees, hears
  • but his visions are not accepted
  • by skeptic minds and hearts


  • ==================================

  • books were her best friends
  • the shy, clumsy girl
  • too eager to hide
  • they held her hands
  • together they traveled
  • in worlds full of magic and beauty
  • then with time
  • they became the source of wisdom
  • the shy girl grew up
  • to become a woman with confidence
  • and above all full of peace, happiness

  • girl silhouette

  • Late at night
  • if the world falls silent
  • you can hear her song
  • she walks on the brink
  • the line dividing
  • sanity and insanity
  • if you listen to her words
  • you will wonder
  • if her vision are hazed
  • or she sees too deep, too much

  • ==================================

  • ==================================
  • Sometimes
  • I want to open my eyes
  • and step out of my home
  • right into the lap of nature
  • soft grass under my bare feet
  • a flute in my hand
  • serenading with birds and wind
  • endless blue sky above my head
  • trees all around me

  • changing the landscapes
  • like a child changes his playbox
