2- Those Animated Pictures Shivered Him - Poem by sarwar chowdhury

Standing beside the sea
he were watching
something pleasing on the shore
Suddenly he were shivered!

His memory opened the window
where animated pictures were appearing
that he could not understand the factum-

Humanity is naked mendicant
War-torned earth loughing
Shuttle diplomacy cutting jokes
Lovely flowers are crying
Sunshine disturbed
Moonlight tortured
Roads are as tormentor
Conspiracies are tranquillizer
Beauties become fire
Lovers are tyrants
Cities are forest
Wisdoms are neglected
Liar being worshipped

At last
very slowly he sounds once-
Where i am living!

But when he turned right and
looked at the unknown green tree
a sentence entered in his mind-
Day and night appear here having touched by cyclic motion.

    You handle the English language in a wonderfully, unique way. I love your use of
    the word, 'shivered' to describe your reaction to the animated pictures. Sarwar,
    I can honestly say, I have yet to read a poem of yours that did
    not richly deserve a ten.

    Warm regards,

    Sandra

    Wisdom finally appeared in the form of a tree. As it often does these days.
    I think people are fearful of their death and are preparing for their demise.

    In the very last line i found a precious key (or clue) to an eternal wisdom. Worthy reading the whole to the closing line. Well penned. (Report)Reply
