Amitava Chakraborty

Rookie (9th August,1970 / Antpur, Hooghly(W.B) -India)


Little brook I flow down leisurely
Passing through dales & villages gradually.
Feel I happy listening lovers’ songs in harmony
Again share I widows’ tears on funeral ceremony.

Little brook I flow down leisurely
Called in different names by poets so passionately.
Become I ecstatic with an untamed drenching kid
At the same time blessed I by farmers for crops feed.

Little brook I flow down leisurely
In my zigzag course as a witness eternally.
Observed once in nature’s bosom the jovial child
Alas! Wash out today at four-score his crematorium field.

Little brook I flow down leisurely
Nourished by my mighty mother affectionately.
How liberal she is to me during monsoon!
But enraged in summer when I gasp at scorching noon.

Little brook I flow down leisurely
Feel proud myself pondering a man’s plight sorrowfully.
How piteously bound with money an employee is to his authority
Counting unfulfilled dreams in silence with futility!

Little brook I flow down leisurely
Dependant we both to feeding parents loyally.
Nevertheless, satisfied this tiny creature with nature’s care
When that poor obedient is crushed under mundane torture.
