On The Thirty Sixth Day Of The Month

Poem By Bhaswat Chakraborty

My eyes lay there on the path
That you tread when you remember love
They relent not for a moment
Though your sight is rare to come by
Devotion knows not profit! Alas!
Knows not the risk
It stares the path in oneness
It takes the wrath in oneness

Who played the music over yonder
On the violoncello of human faith
He wrecks the instrument to build a note
His music is a torment and yet a road
Who plays the scales of love in there
He squashes the beloved to get his love
My eyes lay there on your path
That you tread when you remember love

The thrashing of love and long waits
Where is the transcend that love longs for
And yet the expectation of the first day
Fulfils not till the end of the summer June
On the calendar of love,
A few drops trickle
Only on the thirty sixth day of the month

Comments about On The Thirty Sixth Day Of The Month

wow awesome poem! you have a gift! and im glad your sharing it to the world great job! keep it up!
I dont know the significance of 36th day, but I am moved with this poem, again written with a smooth flow and simplicity, that is your hallmark
Along with the path of glory That love brings into this life... You have brought the concept of 'Thirty Six'! Is it because, this 36 has a fascinating property..? Like the Hidden Light of this number... You mean the love reaches its credence on this day. Its very difficult to realize the healing touch of love Unless awareness bites the Man. Good theme. Good one.

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!
