Bishnupada Sethi Poems
Fairy In The Garden
In the garden on lazy grass A fairy was chatting with her mates. At her sight, The flowers began to bloom,
Forces Of Life
The restless stream, Flowing on an untamed path, Tears the chest of the valley And is in an unknown hurry.
The Winter Night
The winter night Covered with the thick blanket of dews, Waits outside my window Hoping to get the first glimpse of the Sun!
The Old Banyan Tree
The mighty banyan tree on the road side Sitting like a solitary chronicler Has risen above the ground by a hundred feet, Since decades ago
Everything passes into that Devouring, swallowing mouth: Dear, beautiful things get digested Not known where these go.
From Dream To Reality
I need to dream To lift my senses, So I dream, To lighten up with new experiences in mind,
I Have Gone To Sleep
I have gone to sleep Unaware of the things around, My face bears no expression The body is quiet like a stone.
As I Cry!
Someone wants to talk from within In the language of unknown, About wounded and soft feelings And its’ voice fail to reach any one.
I Wish To Cry
The past has long since slipped out, Only remain its traces in my memory; The pale images and known events Appear before me in a slide show
The avalanches in my memory Appear in flashes; The events from past to the present Roll down in slides
My World Of Spirits
My world is a world of spirits The way to salvation being my tribe; I dare not defile it, For my tribe is the temple of God.
Men In The Forest
The mystery of evergreen Sal forest Strikes wonders due to the vastness. The music of silence is unique And the untamed streams compose its theme.
Where Shall I Go!
Where shall I go! Leaving this land, For which I am only a trustee. As a tribal, I am duty bound
For I Am A Child
Not that I am unaware- A castle of sand made on the sea shore will only last for few moments.
Men In The Forest
The mystery of evergreen Sal forest
Strikes wonders due to the vastness.
The music of silence is unique
And the untamed streams compose its theme.
The peaks of sacred hills
Create a delight to the eyes
In the back ground of light pale sky.
No one is there in their homes
