Natural Downfall

Even the strongest got weaknesses,
The wisest got imperfections,
The hopeful got depression,
The patient one got complaints…

So what do they do when they’re not at their best?

Fake it, panic, freak out or runaway?!
No.
It’s a natural downfall but for a while indeed.

Its because nature wants to show-
What will happen when they are at their worst,
That they should never be proud,
That there are much more to improve and to realize,
Much more to explore and to understand.

As perfection is a lie;
And, learning got no ending…

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।

Cruise by the river Seine, Paris, France

It was a magical night in Paris,
Cruised around by the river Seine,
Witnessed some of the most famous historical sites,
The wind was calmly spreading it’s soothing breeze,
A French instrumental song was playing in the background,
Gradually a view snatched all the attention.

Enjoy!

The Eiffel Tower

Tips:

While visiting France’s capital Paris don’t forget to take a cruise at night by the river Seine. One cruise ride will showcase almost all the heritages of Paris but before purchasing tickets know the routes the cruise will take.

It’s affordable ($12) and will indeed gift you an experience of a lifetime.
