Best Poem of Dina Nath Nadim

A Flower Spoke To The Soil

A flower spoke to the soil
but its pains remained untold;
the bushes were pruned
they were trapped in snow.

They say the garden is abloom,
the sunshine washes the flowerbeds
and the cool reigns.

[Translated by Arvind Gigoo]

A Vessel

A vessel
washed by the raindrops
looked like a woman's liquid face.

The raindrops
washed off its sins.

Somebody came
and kicked the vessel.
Shards lay here and there.

Two days later
children played with fragments.

From hell to heaven
there are two and a half steps.
