Bhaben Barua Poems
He keeps humming on the moments of the midday-- hung out on the clothes-lines.
The Voice Of Whiteness
It's the voice of whiteness -- a blue-throated restless silence : That's upon the peaks of life, and of death too; Found through meaninglessness at intervals --
Down the very heart Of a wide expanse of waters Lies a music of transparence Of unfathomable sorrows.
The Weight Of The Lead
Search, search in the bosom of night With your hands outstretched Those hands where time keeps moving.
Hands Of Darkness
The feel of your hands Comes like the cold. On the asphalt road at night, In disjointed bits of song.
Each word is an angel. Have to Find each one in that smoky solitude — where An evening drowns in the water — And above the Dark forest suddenly is visible the glimmer of a star-studded sky — flapping
Winter, Cold And Graceful
There’s a silent grace mathematical,in each and every bone, Like smiles unembodied ,in each and every cell, The ultimate that has no colour,no sound,no taste or smell.
Each word is an angel. Have to
Find each one in that smoky solitude — where
An evening drowns in the water — And above the
Dark forest suddenly is visible the glimmer of a star-studded sky — flapping
Its wings flies the bird of the night...
Each one has its individual personality, each one has secret goals. Have to
Find each one in an immobility inside the tremor
Where time stops in secrecy, and the meaningless mass of things
