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.

Being Hopeful

In the end, It is just you and your Almighty.

Whenever it’s blue, feels like there’s no hope, there’s love of Almighty for you. A never ending love we hardly realize.

But hope is always there. As long as you’re alive, capable to do stuffs you’re lucky as Almighty is taking care of you, no one would ever do. We all can lean on to that love. Without any hesitation anytime, any moment.

Almighty loves you. The best therapy is to be close to your creator knowing that Almighty cares. It doesn’t require to be highly religious to talk to Almighty but the strong belief that no matter what Almighty will take care of everything, indeed it will give mental peace as well as you’ll never be disappointed if you strongly hold on to it. That disappointment and dissatisfaction won’t last long if we have faith over whatever happens/happened it is for good, even if we can’t see the good right away. Also expectations from worldly creatures can damage the soul, so expect only from Almighty because in the end you’ll realize it too.

Whatever success you got or achieved those are the resemblance of your hardwork but aren’t you lucky to have a well working brain? Or just being healthy?! Or just to be capable of seeing the world or your loved ones around you?! There’s so much around to be thankful for.

Once you realize, you’ll feel the gratitude. You’ll feel the urge to apologize for whatever wrong you did and graciously you’ll thank for whatever you have. We call it ‘Prayer’. You’ll happily pray with satisfaction knowing how connected you are with yourself and to your Almighty.

Just by seeing a new flower that bloomed can make you happy. Even though you know the flower will die soon. But it’s blooming. Blooming courageously, blooming to brighten up the world.

All the praise to Almighty for everything.

May Almighty grant us happiness. All of us.
