We Few…#11


A breeze whistling pass my just bathed body

A car honking zipped on one side while an auto on another side.

The footsteps of night can be heard as leaves of neem & mango–

In my neighbor fall on their alabaster roof.

The doors of southern windows creaking–dancing in the wind

The curtains flying high touching ceiling; Ma sleeping heavy.

Kolkata, let me be Saju tonight; let me subdued in lament…

Sing your lullaby to Rupai, please, and her few days old daughter…

–xx–


Saju is the female protagonist from “Nakshi Kathar Maath” by Jasimuddin, a tragic love dramatic verse in Bengali.

A published poet. Avid Reader. Favorite authors (few) are Satyajit Ray, Saradindu Bandyopadhyay, Bankim Ch. Chatterjee, Jhumpa Lahiri, O. Henry, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, etc. Music lovers. Love to hear Rabrinda Sangeet, Anjan Dutt, Enrique Iglesias, Mozart & Beethoven (though can't say which is who's symphony). Dislike to get clicked. Love to be self (introvert).
