Can Someone Tell Me - Poem by Pradip Chattopadhyay

I met her just once

still in my heart she shines
in this mind bred in the city
grinded in urban complexity
she is one finger pointing the firmament
I never though made her a commitment!

With women have spent oceans of word
with her stayed ten minutes or so
what in me she stirred
lifetime in my mind would glow!

Can someone tell me the mystery of emotion
that makes what's seen in one seen in none
love's ten minutes' silent revolution
in a span of life is never undone!

I met her once only
finger counted moments awhile shared
in my thoughts she remains heavenly
her memory brighter time weathered!

    Reminds me of the movie 'Serendipity' where both John Cussack and Kate Beckensdale are both in love with each other stemming from a brief encounter in time...........I sometimes remember a girl who stayed with me and spoke to me for 30 odd minutes at a pharmacy when I had high fever just to keep me company...........These are encounter which enrich our lives................a brief moment in history yet an etched moment in time...........Beautiful poem - no hesitation in giving full marks! a 10/10 and a story weaved around what many of us face in life - the warmth of strangers........
