Shubho Poila - Blessed First Day


A coin had two sides.
Autumn and Spring.
Summer and Winter.
I met my own match.
The golden brown leaves
Lit into the lush green of spring.
I coalesced into my self
Like two drops of tears
One single drop of dew
Captured the noon sun in full bloom
The coin stood on its edge
Third side
360 Degrees
3 Dimensions
Me, the you in me, and Love.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Note:
Shubho - means holy, good, blessed.
Poila Boishakh is the 1st day of the Bangla Annual Calendar.
I don't follow any local calendars.
I now realise the futility of restricting ourselves to celebrate the new year once a year.
The date is a label, irrespective of which is the calendar.
The moment is the only reality.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
