Access To Hearts

Poem By Bhaswat Chakraborty

It took me a little while
to understand that we were
Exchanging words and emotions
Sometimes, simple and sophisticated at others
Even with a gentle ease most of the time
But there was very little
As a conversation

What went through?
And what was floating
in the non-discernible interest?
There was hardly any electric light those days
But I could read your whole book
Clear and loud – word by word
What went through and what was floating
Those days?

What happened when nothing special
Happened to tickle our senses
What happened when we
Looked at each other
without any reference?
What happened when
Love didn’t have to arrive with table manners

The night dawned into morning
Fresh and lovely dew drops
of possibilities
the morning was open
in all directions of nobilities
the sky held up the enthusiasm
What happened in that morning?
There was something bigger than celebration
there was an access to our hearts

The Naked Child

The war stopped, the great one
About seventy years ago
All said and done
There is now peace – peace aglow



I am a little petal of hue and smell
I am gorgeous you can tell


Of all human manifestations
May I say, you are the greatest
As you give milk, food and protection
What to say of love, peace and rest!

Your Song

I remember all about you
When I sing the song you wrote
The eyes get wet as they knew
The lifelong generosity you dote

A Friend From Far

Oh, ho! Oh ho, here you are
My friend, my friend from far
Am I glad to see you here
Oh my friend, oh dear, dear!

When I gasp for strength
I borrow it from you, oh the strong ones!
You carry the load stupendous
Of the humanity
