Mo Chhai Mo Kaa - Poem by Bharati Nayak

Ei kada leutau thiba
Dina raati
Badali jaauthiba rutu
Ghunchi ghunchi jaauthiba
asankhya anubhabara pharda
Satataala pokharira
Padma chakorare bandihoi rahithiba
Aabegara bhramara
Bele bele semanankara
Gunjanare
Mana mastiskara
Prati sira prasira
Kona anukonaku
Uchaata karidianti
Mana darpanare unkimaare
Saana bela khadi khaibara drushya
Ketebele ribbon udei
Doli jhuluthibara maharga anubhav
Frock pindha kishori bayasara
Mitha mitha swopna

Bus jharka kacha phanka paban bi
Emiti udainie
Pindha panatara kaani
Kahi heu nathiba bhasa bi
Pindha kaanire lekhi hoi
Boli diie au kaaha muhanre
Aabegara shiharana
Emiti kete phula, kete kantaa
Kete hasa kete luha
Padatie na kahi barsa barsa biti jaai thibaara
Tharate na dekhi, yojana, yojana
Kemiti milai jaae byabadhana
Kanhiki naa
Mo bhitara KAA'ti aau kaha KAA sathire
Adala badala hoi saari thae.- - - - -

    -An amazing sketch on reflection of life’s fleeting moments replete with images and vivid inscription of past memories…. Mana darpanare unkimaare /Saana bela khadi khaibara drushya/Ketebele ribbon udei/Doli jhuluthibara maharga anubhav..A very touching poem! Though I don’t have much command on comprehending difficult poems but I understand the expression…Please consider if I am poor in my remark…Regards (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem made more and more sticky by the flowery imageries you have used.
    Will comment on it in Odia after typing them. you know I have a weakness for good poems of my mother tongue.
    10++++ for it.

    Wonderfully presented the imagery of childhood where a child watches in reflection of mirror about his eating of chalk in school days. Very amazing expression that touches mind and makes reader very emotional. Nice sharing definitely.....10 (Report) Reply
