New Morning, New Light


Oh! Abstract creativity!
All praise and dignity!
I'm merely a dress,
With strain and stress,

Wear me, wear me,
Why don't you see?
I am in darkness,
I need your brightness.

I want to be brightened,
Please make me enlightened
With a silky pious light,
In this moonless night.

So short is the life!
And age is the knife!
I had always been waiting!
In your book my rating!

The new sun so bright,
Making myself a light,
Making me enlightened,
More shining more brightened,

New morning of creation,
With a new generation,
Decorating, the souls in painful distresses,
With colorful dresses,

Shall awake in descendants, confident and sure,
Like a rainbow after rains.
Having remedy and cure,
No pains, no strains.

(Being inspired by Ruma Chaudhry's Bengali poem 'Alor Prokashay')

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
