Chandan Dey Poems

now, after a gap of some years,
with your shabby, dried face
one heavenly task is left-

even standing
in the wraith-like
silence of debris,
I think positive

The night was on the horizon.

My friend and I were walking silent
on a complex field

The meandering path,
an endless solitary journey
with countless dreamy hopes.

Leaving me alone
when you fled in that night
without dropping your beret,
i read the untold stories

You've gifted me
a flinty world
of ‘bland' emptiness,

when your heart
is broken into pieces;
not even the slightest


Like a mirage a crazy I sometimes come to the surface from the deepest depth of the ocean, program our environment according to its own choice and start driving the car with an eerie speed & twist; the crest and trough change unpredictably and therefore mesmerize the traffic police!

Then it becomes not easy for us to know which pen is used to write the poem actually! If you explore, you can't defy its effect. For you it's the testing time.

life comes and goes
like a pendulum,
evokes endless curiosity
no one knows


You're like sweet soft breeze of evening summer
always making a kiss on me, but in no way can i


what lies
beyond that fence?

all over,

A short spell of rain
with a silvery hope,
a wavy peep
through the closed door,

apprehended, questioned
i move on cautiously,

the path is probably the narrowest

pain of separation,
an exchange of Love
but, exchange of ‘Some Values'?
is it in the hand of destiny

With a special wish
i came down from the Hill
to connect two poles
some day

in the beach
when i sit alone,
the bluish infinity of the ocean
always becomes

The ghosts of disbelief
are moving in all directions
striking the walls at random
in the dark cloudy night.

the sun is sinking
toward the horizon.
the variety of colors
has painted the old sky.


The programmed top
is gyrating fast
drawing a tortuous path
on the surface of the earth.

The Best Poem Of Chandan Dey

The Task To Be Done

now, after a gap of some years,
with your shabby, dried face
one heavenly task is left-

to embrace the flower vase on the table,
to pour water into it,
without touching the flowers, inside....
