Blue Abode - Poem by Prayag Saikia

Why have you ensnared the sky in a frame
Don't you know that
The sky has
No beginning
No end

No limit has been imposed on the sky
By the exploration
Of any Dhananjaya

An azure sky
A blue sky
Can be a consort for an Odyssey
Only for the trek

The sky is empty
The sky is in culmination
You have forgotten this
And opened up
The shutter of the camera

I understand
You have fallen in love
People in love
They have conquered the blue

(Translated from Original Assamese by Bibekananda Choudhury)
