This is a poem written by our newest member, Shimanta.


Read me a poem
About pretty maidens with sunflowers
In their hair
Can you paint me a Picasso
Showing the sunset at sea and
The tiny boats of fishermen
Resplendent with sardines and dancing sails?

Shelley is gone
And so are others like him—
The happy songs of skylarks and nightingales
Rattle like coarse gravel
In ears attuned to glib, table talk.
—And we who try to imitate them
Are at once ostracised and even put to sword.

Times are changing:
Fishermen return home with battered sails
Having gone for days without fish
Pretty maidens with flowers pass unnoticed
It’s only the woman suckling her babe
On a dry nipple
That makes me snatch the pen!

My pen snatched a quick glimpse at the famous sculptor
flared nostrils, apathetic trousers
a word or two slid upon a page, just as the train arrived
my page, dropped as puddle feed
lucky a woman, hungry for a poem grabbed it
and ran past the turnstile
clutching a soggy notion

Such movement of emotions. In the first movement it is a picture of hope, and beauty.

Nice work.
