Affected by Chlorine

Found this Dragonfly
Sadly, it was already gone on the other side,
Pool’s chlorine trap protected the ‘water’ for its showoff owner succeeded!

Before taking the flight today, little did this beautiful and healthy creature knew about its fate,
As deceiving portraits created by humans kept on snatching these lives everyday more than yesterday…

Beautiful Delusion

Covered with pink rose petals… 

The green field, covered with pink petals here and there,
Seemed like a massacre at first; 
To get the full view one will have to see from top.

She rolled her eyes looking at the extravagant situation!
Then she screamed!
Why?!

At a close distant, behind the willow trees, there’s a tree house! 

Inside the tree house, fairy lights were covered all over the ceiling. 
Lava lamps along with the gigantic moon lamp was nicely organized highlighting pastel colored splash paintings on the wall. 

A printed version on canvas of the famous mural ‘Girl with Balloon’ by Banksy was displayed on the other side of the wall. 
It reminded her trip to Amsterdam, visiting Moco Museum. 

There was fluffy pillows all over the floor that seemed like clouds…

She tiptoed and went close to the window to see the view from top & witnessed pink rose petals that seemed like caused a massacre earlier, actually crafted one beautiful dream catcher!

About The Ending:

The last paragraph of this post was a bit different. For some reason changed the dark ending. Life is complicated and not about rainbows and butterflies. But to justify the title ‘Beautiful Delusion’, couldn’t finish the way thought before.

Though in the end it’s all a delusion, doesn’t mean we will have to surrender ourselves to life’s complications but to stay hopeful for the good stuffs and keep striking back.

স্পন্দন/Impulse

I’ve written several poems but this one was the second poem that I wrote in Bengali Language. Bangla is a language that is very close to my heart. Didn’t want to translate the lines, so accept my apology but I feel like the translation would’ve snatched the actual flavor & rawness of the poem. But if anyone wants to know then I would definitely share a short summary about it.

স্পন্দন

ভালবাসা সে তো এক বিভীষিকার নাম;
আগুনের মত জ্বলে,
শৈল্পিক এক স্পন্দন।

কিন্তু…..
বুঝে ওঠার আগেই হারিয়ে যায়।

দিন, বছর, যুগ;
বার্ধক্য আসে,
মানুষ বদলে যায়…

মানুষের সেই সারিতে আমি কেমন প্রানী?
যে আজও স্মৃতি আঁকড়ে বাঁচি?

আশা? কেমন আশা?
(অট্টহাসির শব্দ আসে চারপাশ থেকে)

হাহাকার উঠে হৃদয়ের মাঝে,
আর্তনাদে মুষড়ে পড়ি,

বক্ষভেদ করে বিষাক্ত তীর।

The Irony

How it Happened?

Thought about writing a poem without using pronouns and ended up writing this one.

Poem #4
The Irony

Glad to remember every single trail,
Stored closely into the human brain.
The good ones & the opposite ones,
Harsh failings, clueless blames.

Took it all, also swallowed;
It was the little world, have always adored...

Seen that drowning, upside down and the deterioration;
Red cells couldn’t stop the cremation.

On the other side, wish everything is going well to live;
Hope present days brought the peace this side couldn’t give.
Hope finding ‘peace’ is healing for real,
Hope perfect life has eliminated the absolute obstacle.

Togetherness

As they stumbled, they valued their achievements;
As they loved colors, they couldn’t discriminate;

As they learned bonding, they dissolved selfishness;
As they empathized, they became aware of narcissists;

As they faced reality, they acknowledged self-worth;
As they grew older, gradually they got wiser.
