[01] October 2006 - Poem by Ashraful Musaddeq

Some dates of an October wiped up
When Cell-phones went beyond network
Suddenly some souls became paler
Moons appeared fading, bells mump
Cloud slept alone to the northern sky!

On the mind-way a line was dissolving
Between yellow fair and sparkle unfair
Buds were sprouting from the high-rises
Something was beaming within chilly blood
In the glossy evenings of unkind October.

October 2006 had a unique flavor
with assorted taste
Like a box of 31 dissimilar backed nuts
with testing salt!

    How unfortunate that October should be unkind to you. It is such a beautiful month.
    Wonderfully expressive.10 for your vivid way of looking at life.

    As always,
