Scent Of Heaven

Poem By Anirban Dasgupta

Scent of Heaven
Just when you sense the scent of heaven……
Just when you are about to touch the sky….
Just when you try to lit the light …..
…..a single stroke of fate brings you down to the floor
Heavens falls on the earth and there is darkness at its core ….

The baby gathers all its strength to stand on its feet….
A world of mountain, air and sea - the treat.........
Tough the world is more so for someone who crawls
Biting the lips with invisible teeth the baby tries hard to grip the walls…..
…………and a single stroke of fate brings you down to the floor.
Heavens falls on the earth and there is darkness at its core

As the wild snake climbing up the forest tree...
In a frenzy to catch the food above
Just as it reaches the top beating all the toughs….
The sharp claws invade through the dark blue………..
The owl has its eyes on its food too……..
A single stroke of fate brings you down to the floor.
Heavens falls on the earth and there is darkness at its core


They won’t let us sing…………..they won’t let us fly …
They won’t let us dream…they won’t let us die……
Owls are everywhere waiting for you……
A moment of madness will see you through….

Tears still roll on, moist eyes still brave to dream …
The golden cage is not for you…the blue sky is indeed
Yesterday, today and tomorrow “you said it…….”
Hide and seek with freedom…..all must play
We shall overcome someday! ! !
