To Him She Loves

Poem By Dyuti Banerjee

My heart longs for a figment of thy presence,
Thy absence absents from my life its very essence;
Mine smiles conditioned by thy mirth,
Thy frown mothers my sadness unto its birth.
I wonder, if this is love, and this be true,
What this came from, where it grew?
Yet I stop, I stop in fear,
('cause I hold thee very dear)
If this our love can transcend
Time, or with Time might it blend,
For I know not, nor to know am I,
(For thee, I know, my heart doth sigh)
Though forever, I be thine, and thou mine,
Till heaven's stars may lose their shine-
Can thou beat Time, fast and sheer,
When it to us may come very near?
Ev'n if Life's terrain prove too short a space,
Or thou mayest find than mine a better face-
My love for thee shall still be bright,
Thy soul, by my love, shall be fastened tight
To mine. And thus, our souls combined,
Shall touch Eternity's shores, a Paradise for us shall we find.....

Something is amiss here- no doubt:
I felt that right in the dankness of the morning-
(You know how the mornings are, these days)
Amiss- but nothing eerie, you know...


A place with fewer boundaries than even Communism might advocate,
Where absurdity becomes reality, making the latter, redundant, unreal-
Child of hope, grandchild of love- fantasy-
Where pink skies greet blue grass,

'Good Morrow'

I am running out of verse,
Rhyme fails me-
The first time,
In times that were and are to be, -

An Unheard Cry

The cry pierced the silence,
Tore a hole, in the invisible air,
Which in the face of things, was fair,
'Cept it came from this side o' th' fence.

Reign Of Rainy Bliss

Thunder-claps riot in the sky
A light drizzle flirts with the wind
Ancient waves torment the ready mind
That endeavours through poetry to reach a new high.
