On A December Night

Poem By Pradip Chattopadhyay

One night for a whole hour
I stayed awake for meteor shower
A good night's sleep tho' I badly need
Beckoned me the fireworks of Geminid.

I imagined sky in dazzling light
Shooting stars in lunatic flight
And me this splendor viewing alone
With moon at west close to dawn.

On my hairs dripped dews noiseless
Eyes caught Jupiter's shining face
I stood the hour in awesome stupor
Seeking in Gemini the bright Castor.

Lo not flowed the faintest streak
Winter's chill dug and pricked
Smell of morn when was airborne
I left for bed displeased and worn.

1924: A Love Story

The day you walked in
Stood on my door
You were nineteen
I was twenty four.

Love Is Our Weapon

A long road ahead, that's no scare
We can surely make it, the will is there.
The way is tough, terrain treacherous
But cover we shall, we can all of us.

2 Lovers

On her course merrily flows the svelte rivulet
She meanders not alone carries the sky on her breast.
In him grows a longing, love flowers in his heart
She doesn’t know it, on the sea is set her heart.


Oh what salvation lies
In rain’s musical note

10 Kittens

Ten kittens in my home now
Ten little brats
Their mothers never knew how
To catch the cupboard rats!

Lying In Wait

Come brother let’s sit under memory’s canopy
Walk down olden times chatter childishly
Forgetting the ravaged mind the years’ tempest
Retrieve the tender moments in heart's youthful jest!
