[03] And She Was - Poem by Ashraful Musaddeq

Laughing demons were deep blue
Sky was frightened on the skyward

Scorching sunbeam marched on
The dusty yellow leafs were diffused

A sparrow was crying somewhere
Breezes were walking silently

Time was settled into the legs
Like the roots of a large tree

Nothing happened but a train left
And she was inside the train

    A picture painted,
    Of an hot dry still afternoon
    Numb in limb he stands
    Watching the train pullout,
    Strokes of blue brown & black
    A sad and stricken heart & face,
    All with the brush of Poetry!
    Brought to mind so many
    Rustic stations, distant places
    And many of our own goodbyes!
    A very true picture painted
    With heart and soul and pain.

    So much compressed into so few words! Wonderful! People come and go out of our lives, Sun rises and sets, rain falls and stops; though certain moments remain etched forever in our memories, in an overall sense all that happens is just as per the expected order of the universe. (Report)Reply

    Apparently, nothing happened.The nature waits solemnly the train departure Time stops to start again with the departure of the train..Two persons have been separated. Two people are breaking in their love.Nature is personified: .''A sparrow was crying somewhere/Breezes were walking silently.'' Epithets of color appear, very suggestive, that emphasizes the painting of the nature: ''dusty yellow leafs''.We expect the tear, but, no, it looks like rain. A beautiful poem.(and my little 10 is there) (Report)Reply

    a lot of room for rambling ambling and maybe goin off the tangent altogether..

    evocative...deep and apperas focused and purposeful...yet ellusive...sometime this is a cherished poetic pinnacle
    solid write...cheers
