The Poet - To C. Baudelaire -

Poem By Alice Baudoin

"Exiled
To the ground,
Engulfed
In contempt,
Framed
By giant wings,
A footstep
Is hard
To attempt"

The poet

Went to kiss the stars good night

From the immensity

Of the remoted field

Cold and doubt

Stubbed his heart and sight

And devastation

Floated unsealed


Into his moonlight stroll

Along the river

Thoughts burned like fire

On the fine hot sand

And helplessness,


Corrosive like a shiver,

Venom and fear

Poured upon his hand


You, poet,

Made of Stone and of Wind,

Of Sound of Horn

Reordering Our Feeling,

The grain of dust

Your palm and soul tinned

Will turn the stars you kissed

Into a ceiling

One Last Desire

I have one last desire
Let me die
In the evening silence
By the sea

'So Long As There Is Life, There Is Struggle' -Harivansh Rai Bachchan-

Inexpressible pain
Like silence
Like a hand full of darkness

Those Who Wander

-to Amitabh Bachchan-


“Those who wander along the beach

Sometimes

Sometimes even gods are dying
And leave their traces on the sky
Like sunsets when they fall and die
Without smiling, without lying

Landing Like A Stranger

I mixed you up with the sky
In the end of the day

With the leaves

The Art Of Leaving Behind

Life is the art of leaving behind
A past and a passion for love
A mystery, a regret, a dishonorable moment,
An embarrassing instant of glory
