Diptesh Augustine Sarkar Poems
It's your smile that shines on my face like the sun though the sun too has its end but my days are too short to count too blest to see you wane.
A leaf I once had plucked And left forgotten In a spree,
I saw: Her alone sitting on the bed hunch-back
You are through the foothill ride the darkest of the night pits are there and boulders you may stumble outright
A Japanese-Doll Went A-Reading
A Japanese-doll went a-reading and a flower followed her She put the flower back on the bough and asked a bee to keep her.
A sting long struck us the venom now runs slowly with blood; and time bears fruit. The poet, the lover, the rebel
Once my brother fell ill two and half year old ceased to toddle one evening; They took him to a doctor

Paean To 2011
My hands are empty as are yours
and perhaps scores even

anguish, loss and suffering
that I remember and regret
but fail to remember that there was
laughter and grace, too
in equal measure...
