[02] Clean Mind - Poem by Ashraful Musaddeq

Don't try to hurt
Bullet-proof mind that puts on iron-curtain
Bayonet-sentences will fall back.

I don't like cloudy face
This is not the season of chrysanthemums
Rainy-ixora is red and red.

Revenge returns like boomerang
Slice and share thoughts
Vinegar nourishes pickles well.

let's clean mind with organic facials.

    I think your stint at the Bangladesh Agricultural Development Corporation has given you sufficient fodder for your amazing poems..
    Case in point are the names of various flora/fauna mentioned by you...

    in a world of superficiality, all looks like something the mind can't see
    yet! so real that everybody wants to close their eyes, and don't like to
    feel of what is today....such a poem that target the truth of what is
    going back to the beginning of seeing the world as it exist....
    what beautiful poem, that should be read to all mankind...thank you
    and God bless....a 10++++++

    I don’t like cloudy face,
    For me it is intolerable too...
    Your idea was pleasant to me...
    At you 'torments' good thoughts and
    strong metaphors,
    it is good... 10............
