The Guitar Of Light - Poem by Sayeed Abubakar

It seems someone has cast a dark net
and the town has become a trout caught in that net;
It seems no morning has ever approached here,
the town has sub-merged in an over-flowing darkness.

The town seems to be an island of fairy tale.
It seems someones, like giants, are snatching away
the ornament from a teen girl's forehead
and then devouring her bone-marrow with rapture.

It seems someones, by tearing the civilization into pieces,
are eating up finally its bones and flesh.
Hadn't ever a single monk or saint come
amid the darkness here?

Then you, o poet, take the responsibility
and play the guitar of light into this darkness.


[Translation of the Bengali poem 'Alor Guitar' taken from the poet's first book 'Pronoyer Prothom Pap' (1996) ]

    This is a remarkable poem, both for the intense portrayal of the the danger and peril of our modern world and the faith in the power of poetry to comprehhend the situation and hopefully transcend the crisis. Thanks for translating this gem of a poem. (Report) Reply
