Pijush Biswas

(12 July,1988 / Srirampur, Nadia, West Bengal, India)

In a darkling night


I was walking through a road,
Diverged into two directions ahead
In a darkling and gloomy mood
Of the night, which threads
Both, hope and despair
In a pair.

I could not understand
Which direction I have to go
Right hand? or left hand?
I had to bow
Down my will before the growing gloom
Of the night in search of my doom.

I was perplex'd
And could not count
What direction to go
And thickness began to mount
Before I started to draw
Any trace of human being
And was shrunken my brow.

Suddenly, a lady with lamp
Coming towards my way
Chanted loudly by the name of Ram
As fear struck her heart
As the destination far away.

She comes closer to me
And a light of hope rose in mind
Which helped me to breathe free
A lady of grace, so kind
Asked me 'Lets go where to go'.

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
