Anil Kumar Panda Poems

You don't have to go to the dale
To find her playing with a butterfly;
She would hide from you
As she is young and shy;

I can't barter my freedom
Take away the riches with you
Don't display your dollars and pounds
To my countrymen who need freedom too

I don’t know why I like to talk with you
In your language
Why I can’t withdraw my fingers from the keys
Till I finished the page;

Dripping drops of diamond dews
Ice-cold beads encompassing numerous hues
Swirling down the peacock-green leaves
And get disappeared on the bed of sheaves.

The stars have gone behind the clouds
The moon has lost its sheen
In the thick night I weep like a child
Because I can no more call you mine

Where thoughts are defiled with
Anger, greed, violence and pride;
Where mind revolts against the truth
And carries the lies as its guide;

I open the door and feel the dawn
Descending upon my palm as I hurry
To have a walk across the lawn

I live inside me
Trapped by my thoughts
Good or bad
I let myself suffer for

It is a surprise
How in rhythm with
The fluttering of wings
Of a butterfly your eyes

Sitting in the balcony
I watch the rose bud
Swaying in the breeze
Waiting to open up

Like the cool breeze form the sea
You touch my heart and mind
You caress my body to sooth me
Thanks very much being so kind


Roses open up in the dawn
To play with the wind and the sun
They spray fragrances into the air
To give a feeling of peace, love and care

How much you need to live this life
How much money, how much food
How much lands and how much blood

As the spring arrives
With fresh leaves fluttering
And flowers blooming
Songs of shepherds

And the birds will chirp
When dawn breaks in the east
About an hour later ray of
The sun comes through the mist


Waking up I saw the new sun
Rising slowly in the eastern sky
With dreams laden eyes I have in
Last mid night said the year good bye

Sitting in swing
I watch the earth
Going up and coming
Down so swiftly

As always happens
This time will go away
Nothing is permanent here
Nothing is born forever to stay

She is really a bird of prey
Sitting on a branch counting her day

She has a heart with a gaping hole

The night comes for me
With an urge to write
To put down my thoughts
In black and white

The Best Poem Of Anil Kumar Panda

A Country Girl In Love

You don't have to go to the dale
To find her playing with a butterfly;
She would hide from you
As she is young and shy;

You can't see her among trees and bushes
For she does not stay in a place;
Just track down her in fields
On her head she has done a new lace;

She may be on the hill, sitting on stone
And staring at the sky in a pensive mood;
She has been going there to watch
The flitting clouds since her childhood;

Yonder at the edge of dale you can see
Her squatting by the river side playing;
With sands, snails and pebbles
Watching the boats as they go down gliding;

Sometimes I watch her lithely tread
The narrow paths across the desolate field;
Her eyes looking for someone
Where the green crops wild flowers yield;

She is lost in herself and wanders through
Vales, forests, hills and hot desert;
Singing, dancing, laughing and murmuring
No one knows what is in her heart;

Sometimes they think she has met
Someone somewhere in those lonely lands;
Who fell in love with her and promised
To return and would ask her for her hands;

Anil Kumar Panda (Tiku akp) is a romantic poet full of emotion. His deep attachment to nature is evident in all his poems. He pours out his heart with sincerity and expresses his feelings, whether it is love or pathos with lot of imagery and metaphors. When i entered Poem Hunter in 2015, he was among the first few poets that i began reading. Best Wishes Tiku ji. Remain blessed.
