Geetima Baruah Sarma Poems
Not For Long
Bad days do not last long, One should have patience, To overcome them all.
(Dedicated to my mother) You smiled at me, Even though you were in pain,
Spring has arrived And 'Bohag' beckons, Parents await their Homeward sons.
A Ballad On Self-Realization
A tale, Of two pals, Ego possessed the former, Self-respect imbibed the latter.
Oh! Precious drops, A view crystal clear, Life without you, A complete mess,
O winged ones, You come in thousands From distant lands To enjoy the cool lap
Dreams began to wane as she faced distress and she proclaimed there were lots to express.
I lost touch with you For so many years, But when I think of you, It seems like -
My mind was filled With too many thoughts, Thoughts of the past, Thoughts of the future,
Through an introspection, One can analyse any reaction. Situations remain the same,
We are born free, Yet find ourselves, Fastened with shackles.
A Sleepless Night
She kept awake whole night long, her eyelids refused to bow
Season’s yield, Granaries filled, Mid-January, Festival ‘Bhogali’.
A Lady With A Difference
An old lady, Wrinkles stamped on her face, Greeted me 'Merry Christmas', Invited me to her residence.
On a Sunday evening,
Swinging on a swing,
I remembered a saying -
'Work while you work,
Play while you play.'
I pondered awhile,
Does it mean concentration
