This Diwali, Be The Light

  We all have a light within us. The light resides in our soul. When you journey deep towards the farthest corner of your heart, you will see the light. Sometimes, the light flickers with the glory of your scars, sometimes, it shimmers like the evening star, or, at the night sky, with a calling…

The Wanderess

“O, Wanderess, Wanderess When did you feel your most euphoric kiss? Was I the source of your greatest bliss?” ― Roman Payne I am nothing but a wandering soul who loves to travel and explore. When I feel tired, I find a momentary shelter. A place to be healed, to be loved, to be smiled. Sometimes…

Goddess Of The Light

  [The soul is lying in the darkness. Homeless, like an orphan. It's wandering, searching for the light. Unaware of the glory ahead, it's lost, somewhere in the dark, somewhere, in the valley of darkness. At this unreal hour, at the last stroke of the night, a light appears. Here awakes, goddess of the light.]…

Prelude To The Piedpiper

  O' Prince Of Flute, I was just a piece of bamboo, spanless, fragile, It was you who first breathed on me, gave me your tears & smile. Too many memories, too many wonders, Together we danced, into the thunders. We searched for the unknown, travelled hills and dales, Sometimes captivating, like the fairytales. With…

Unveiled

  "I, will, firstly, strip myself of clothes and ornaments. Then I intend to peel off this light brown skin and shatter my bones. At last, I hope you will be able to see my homeless, orphan, intensely beautiful soul, deep within the bone, deep down under, beneath even the marrow, in a fourth dimension."…

I Bleed Red

  I bleed red. Every month, I bleed red. When the days are around, When the cycle starts its count, I bleed red. It gives me a chance, To grow, to bloom, To nurture, to transform, To give birth, to reborn. Yes, I bleed red. It gives me the pain, It gives me the reason,…

A Letter To My Father

  Dear Dad, Thanks for gifting me a fairytale in your palace. A royal palace decorated with thousands of shimmering stars and hundreds of flickering candles.

Colours Of Me

  In my heart, the light, I see. In my dance, I hear, rhythm of thee. I have loved you since years, And, thousands to be. Drench me in your beauty, divine, In your love, I find, colours of me.   Read my poem on divine love, I am You & You are Me.

জাগো নবীন আলো

                           শব্দ হীনের শঙ্খ ধ্বনি,                              হৃদমাঝারের আলো,                        রাত্রি শেষের ভোরের সুরে,                             নূতন প্রদীপ জ্বালো।।                           যে জন থাকে নিরজনে,                        একলা মনের গভীর কোণে,                          আজকে তারই আমন্ত্রণে,                             ঘুচুক মনের কালো।।                          নীরব পথিক যাত্রা শেষে,                         আজ তোমারই…
