Swain's Proposal

Poem By Goutam Hazra

Moon is so jealous
Never says,
“Arjyaneela, your beauty is my light.”

Cool wind too
Has never been so soothing
Soprano to my ears - as your mezzo

Flowers are not my motif
As your opaline eyes are my muse

Could be the raining cloud
like your panicle hair

Sprigged muslin
in your silhouette
gleams like luminous stars

Pavane I see never
any ocean can play
as your dupatta does

The pride of sundown even buzzes off
your cinnabar bindi
like an asphodel
when it blooms on your forehead

If so transcendental you are
what else can be my be canto
except 'loving you death unto'

Your smile
promissory
with secrets of life
let go my felucca mind.

If Jesus Asks

Dew on the grass
Wants to disappear
As a day wakes up
Frightened by the red eyes of sun.

lying dead
her beige face
expressing satiety,

Reminiscences On Valentine's Day

That day afternoon
umbrella cloud
every moment followed the shadow of daylight.
You were walking

Reminiscence

My father told me
first time
I was just a boy then,
“Follow the scent of paddy flower

When Rain Begins

Curtain of brown dusk
Could not hide your pleasant silhouette
From my sight.
