Just Be

a poem by

Charudutta Panigrahi

Right here and now
I pine for me
For more of me to me
For an independent me
To be only me
Not aligning
Not maligning
Not surrounding
But a lone reaper singing in the fields
And coming back to myself
Right here and now.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Who am I?
Running from mirror to mirror
Held not by me
But souls known
Are they known?
There is no known sky
No known cloud,
No known air,
No known leaves,
Why should souls be known?
I wouldn’t know
Who am I?

The Fortune Cookie

a poem by

Poumita Paul

Cents crawled over Baga
The fourteenth from right
First from me
White tarpaulin flew over
Dispair of the vend’s derm
Adorning the last few cookies
Wind chimes tickled an anvil
Bucks for the Fortune Cookie
Honey brown teint glued my glasses
Bare eyes longed to rest
Lips to feel the first kiss
The rough skin held my hands
Lips inches apart
Ouch! That hurts!

Tongue blood bathed
And me noticed its opening
Unchaste! Winking through the hoods!
Its demonic beam savouring it all
Akin the day sweet chirps tooled it
Tearing its hem with the peak
I stumbled, fings escaped
The cookie embraced the sea
Glasses reflected the dirty dance
Gusts sanding my tearfeds
Brought in a thump
Across the left blush

The silver foil read
NOT YOUR STORY.

At the Beach

a poem by

Aarti Raheja

Where am I? Where I am?
Here I am… Oh! Yes I am here…
This place, Oh My, is My Soul
This Sound is Oh! Oh My Peace
This Moment is Mine… Oh! So Mine

I gaze at your endless sight
My heart dives deep inside you
Tranquilized I am when your sound touches my ears
I just stay, stay lost in you, while I find myself in you
I talk to you all that I feel
While you take me inside the Memories…

This is how I feel at a Beach!

You

a poem by

Sanal Kumar

Oh! My gracious lady,
You are the sweetest flower
In the grove of my heart.

Tell me with what magical power you attract me?
Is it with your comeliness, or
Some other power.
You fill all my life with full of fragrance,
Without you can I think of another life.

To praise your features
Those starry eyes of you I would always looking at,
Those rosy lips of yours
I would always be kissing.
Beside your sweet voice
Like a sweet music
Fill my heart with full of ecstasy
My life is futile
Without you.

I wait for you
Like that parched earth
Waiting for the touch of first rain drops,
I wait for you like that black night wait the arrival of full moon
I wait for you
Come soon
Because, my life is Sunless with you.

Found You

a poem by

Patricia Dsouza

Where can I find a rare diamond like you?
You picked me up from the muddy stew

You raised my head and taught me to walk
The road that is full of thorny rue

You hold my hand in midst of storm
And kept me away safe and warm

For this I want to thank you aloud
And allow every drop of rain to gush through the cloud

Non-stop

a poem by

Saumya Verma

Her mind wanders late at night,
Remembering the taste of everything she had in front of her sight.
Red, blue, black and green,
Were all the colours she would ever dream.
She was that drop most,
Which no one wants to disturb,
Stuble in nature yet fierce overall.
She would take all your darkness,
To show you the worth of light.
Life wasn’t easy,
But worth the fight.
She didn’t like flowers,
Yet adored the beauty with all of her heart.
And she stood so proud,
With all her flaws no doubt.
Because she had something to go for,
Maybe others didn’t see it,
But in her eyes it was worth all.
Cause no matter how long was the path,
She could fly nonstop

Tears of God

a poem by

Ayush .

The night shattered,
And shouts were loud.
Smokes of burning tyres,
Enveloped the cloud.
Loud, were the barks but not of dogs,
The city was trembling with bark of mobs.
People ran on the streets with religious cry,
In revenge of the tears in the eyes that dry.

Temples were quiet and mosques were calm,
The beauty of idols lost it’s charm.
Peace cried and unity sobbed,
At the sight of the riot oneness that robbed.
Can religion part us all?
Puts forward this question,
Every jot of blood that falls.

From a loving parent to a lost son

a poem by

Prabindh Sundareson

Where were you
When the day dawned
When the nights slept
And the winds screamed

Keeping my eyes
Open through the days
Little by little
Closing some nights

Once upon a time
Became the last line
Oh how could this happen
Could I be lying?

Holding on to strands
Of tiny moments
Of love and joy and happiness
Of long lost wonderness

Whatever they say
The hope will never dry
Knowing you are out there
Fighting a lone battle

Know just this
There is a price to pay
For what we did not do
But there is a price to pay
Also for what we do

So never be broken
Rise high and shine
Blessed is the day when I can see you
But you not me

– A loving parent remembering a son who never came back

Reason

a poem by

Nitika Siwach

Elders told, whatever you do
Do because of some reason

I became a devotee of this advice
Either being rude or doing something wise…

Than came a season
When I can’t find the reason…

He is a cheese piece for
Whom my heartbeats run like mice
Oh God! First time my head
Suffer from reason crises…

Than realize the reality
Feelings, logic or reason apart
Reasons are work of head
Feelings are most illogical logic of heart…

Awesome

a poem by

Pankaj Kumar

You write a poem
Not by your hand
Or the pen
But with your feelings

Then you post it
Not for money
Or agony
But to be read

And people read it
And admire
Then the feeling
You get
Is Awesome.

Aputhrashya…

a poem by

Bolloju Baba

Do you agree for it?
“Yes”
The sentence being written
on uterine walls
was broken in middle.

Do you agree for it?
she lowered her head
The rain waters washed
the colours of incomplete
wall painting to the ground.

Why didn’t you bring her?
“Please”
The abortion pill that entered
the blood vessels like a thief
crushed the Chrysanthemum bud.

******
“You are lucky to have a male child
who keep on your lineage
and a place in heaven” every one told
the murdered three incomplete foetuses
swung their heads in dissent.

For your love…

a poem by

Rahul Kumar

I used to dream,
About our love…
Oh, I wish I could turn the time back…
Day and night, we used to talk
Even on a rainy day with black cloud upon our head
Our conversation never ends, even with hurdles
Oh, I wish I could turn the time back…
And see what’s burning in your heart
Wish I could figure it out, before you ran away…
Now, you left my hand in this city full of snow
My heart is frozen and you didn’t know…
Standing alone, waiting, holding on…
To start a new day, where we left…

Oh woman

a poem by

Lakshmi

Oh woman you are an enigma
The eternal queen if life’s drama

Oh woman you are a powerhouse
There is lot more to browse

Oh woman like a Phoenix you rise
A smile is enough to mesmerize

Oh woman for you, there were wars
A caring soul that creates super stars

Oh woman you are a history, a mystery
To own you is a victory
Your love is as sweet as a jaggery
You blend well to create that perfect chemistry

Shame!

a poem by

Vijaynath

All around me are distorted faces
In flaming red color,
Every line, curve and contours are
in shocking red

All around me are pandemonium
and commotion,
shouting, pleading, crying and
wailing resembles a battlefield

All around me are torn clothes
with traces of blood,
shattered bangles sparking like
broken stars and crushed lifeless dolls

All around me is darkness in shade
of red, suppressed voices and ignored
pleas for justice and shocking scenes
of trespassed minds and violated bodies

I am speechless, shocked and pathetically helpless
I hang my head in shame when I realize my limitations
to stop this madness around me

Let the flames of shame be spread around
and start a wild fire!

To my Dear

a poem by

Zarena

I want to talk to you dear
Please to hear
So, first come near

Time is little
We need to settle

Otherwise it will be late
I will have to hate
Because I can’t wait

And you will never
Have me for ever
This will be for sure
