Poem By Pradip Chattopadhyay

the blue marble below him
looks a distant dream

wrapped in silence
frighteningly dark
he drifts away from it.

how he now lusts
for that curvaceous sphere
where he left his human part
to be adrift in the dark matter
rimless endless infinite!

once a patriotic earthman
he now travels a space
without nations borders
sinking into deeper ink of silence...

he never loved his planet more
than from this distance!

Comments about Spaceman

Lured by the mysterious charm of the unknown, we set out on an expedition to outer spaces.....(the grass is always greener on the other side.....) . But when we confront with the reality, then only we realize, in what a beautiful zone we have been earlier ! Regrets come late and love for what we have left behind intensifies.... A beautiful write! A 10....... amazing write....I could envision the whole scene.....and truly we never know what we have until it's gone....loved reading this one....adding to my favourite collection...

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!
