Akham Nilabirdhwaja Singh Poems

Water in the pond drying
For it turned into vapors.
In a few days
No water will be there.


The rain came.
Eagerly all were waiting for it.
But a torrential fall
for a few days

The door
You did not know
I opened to you
During the cyclone

A poor man's house
amid tall concrete houses.
The poor man
longing to live

My old house stood
By a marsh
Surrounded by the bushes,
Covered with grasses and rushes.


A pariah cat, timid
Crossing a busy road
Ran over by a speeding truck.
Vehicle after vehicle

Tiny drops of tears
from the eyes of the little angel
clear and glittering like pearls
in the scorching summer

Unable to live
in the polluted water of the pond
the fish jumped up on the bank.
Yet unable to go anywhere

On a foggy day in winter
I wandered long
riding my bicycle
down the countryside.

Captivated by her
On a fine day
I longed to write a poem
On her beauty.

At the crossroad
I was knocked down
by the galloping horse.
Past me it sped


Seeing your shabby portrait
of old age
I remembered once long ago
how you captivated me

Lying on a stretch sofa
one holiday
the officer in his fifties
dreamt of a village belle


This night listening
to the melancholic song of tamna
(Tamna - a singing bird)
from the distance

In that rainy night
near her home
at the distance
a lone electric lamp shone;

At the beginning he danced
To the tune of the audience.
In different styles

In the cold winter morning
the village road was quiet.
Ricksaw puller Tolmu was then fast sleeping
on the grass at the roadside

To defeat me
An emotion you created.
I fought it.
Then, you declared

The Best Poem Of Akham Nilabirdhwaja Singh

The Pond

Water in the pond drying
For it turned into vapors.
In a few days
No water will be there.
Yet the clouds seen
At the distance turned away
To other directions.
In the shallow water
Of the pond
Fishes are seen
Swimming here and there.
But oh Clouds,
Where you have flown!
