Birds(10 Short Poems) - Poem by DEEPAK KUMAR PATTANAYAK

Birds {10 short poems}

Oh, you little birds;
Happy to see you in your nest, so pretty,
so nice clinging to your mother’s breast

Wish my castle
Be like your nest where
God always rests

Wish to speak to you
In softest words, don’t shy away
As it pains me all the way

In a day, you will fly away
Sweet birds, up in the sky a happy fly
Not known to me your way

Only your songs
Treasured in my memory will
Chase you wherever you go and stay

Clear and blue is the sky
Grasses green and trees in leafage anew
You seem happy singing all day through

Such is the power of your
Liquid notes melting down darkness
Into dawn to greet the day-king at morn

Carry live orchestra on wings
Deliver priceless melodies at will, so tender
And serene that attract all to your ring

Always happy, through field
And forest you fly to where you care
Trilling your gratefulness to earth and sky you share

Oh, birds, tell me your secrets
Of happiness that I long for ever
Or carry me on your wings to Heaven
Where happiness flows ever and ever.......

    Of all living things, there's something about birds
    that never fail to move mankind, especially a poetic mind.
    The power of your liquid verse I think matches with
    the power of bird's liquid notes, as you said.
    A lovely poem.

    The combination of ten short poems regarding birds has much impact on readers for its beautiful narration and haunting expresssion. Each little poem is unique on its own perception. Birds are beautiful creatures of God who are closely associated with nature. Their songs, their gaits and their looks are interesting and are able to provide peace and glee. Dear Deepk, you have astutely and aptly presented this poem. The last stanza is much impressive. Thank u too much. Full vote. (Report)Reply

    By lyrical perception we know that living things join in the unfolding of time:
    SUCH IS THE POWER OF YOUR/ LIQUID NOTES MELTING DOWN DARKNESS/ INTO DAWN...

    By lyrical imagination, one realm of experience merges with another:
    CARRY LIVE ORCHESTRA ON WINGS/ DELIVER PRICELESS MELODIES...

    By lyrical expansiveness, we reach out in spirit to other creatures:
    CARRY ME ON YOUR WINGS TO HEAVEN/ WHERE HAPPINESS FLOWS EVER AND EVER...
