I'm basically a technocrat, served an international oil Co. and now I'm retd.
Since long I love reading poems of different poets in different genre. I enjoy reading poems and short stories.Truly, very recently I started writing. Because, I found here I can express my feelings & views silently with a freedom. I personally like poems from any genre, but they should have some message at the end.I like expressing my views in simplest words with a smoothness and rhythm.
In my opinion the rhythm itself differentiates a poem from a prose.
A poetic mind's expression with rhythm itself is poetry.

Amitava Sur Poems
A Drop On A Lotus Leaf
A water bead on lotus leaf - Shimmering with a glow But up to that time only As long is on the leaf.
Beggar: =========================== Oh' my dear, the passers by, I beg you all to listen a while.
====================== Pool of blood, already being soaked in earth's soil Innumerable Skulls are scattered around,
Woman… Woman… woman A woman is by far an Excellency A woman is like a Baobao tree A woman can grow to any length
With a sudden gush of air, the mirror, hanging on the wall Was broken into hundreds of pieces. Collecting all of them and uniting in a frame
================== Though I volunteered to be truth abiding, Truth has not endeared me yet.
=================== Gone are those lovely colorful days …….. Leaving only some sweet remembrance.
In A Misty Autumn Night.
Cherishing your presence Being so benevolent, Your every footstep Is immensely engraved
They all left the park
Jesus was with Mohammed in a park near the lake Buddha, Confucius and Mahabir Jain Were sitting on another bench, Eating some ground nuts, peeling off their shells.
An Angel In The Night
In the misty moon -lit night an angel did alight Peeped me through the window- With my beloved holding tight. She was smiling at me with a gleam in her face
In The Swirl Of Greed
Knowledge teaches us How much is our need Vices inundate In the swirl of greed.
From The Garden Of Eden
Like a tree she took care of me To blossom with colors. She provided all vigor and fodder Blossoming me as a flower.
It feels good, it does good And it persists throughout It cools, it calms It gives the ultimate peace.
Passage In My Life -new-
Phase 1. Alone I was at that time, when I arrived in a womb, Getting mature, as time was passing by – I had a shape of a human being! !

A Drop On A Lotus Leaf
A water bead on lotus leaf -
Shimmering with a glow
But up to that time only
As long is on the leaf.
With a little jerk or a shake
It rolls down and ends.
This life is like that only
As a drop on a lotus leaf
Priceless is our human life
But very mortal and short lived.
With a little quiver or a tweak
It shatters and then breaks.
Very short lived and uncertain
Like the dew on the grass tips.
To extract the beauty of life
So long you are alive -
Love all with love and peace -
Love flower bird and ...
