Treasure Island

(31st, December,1970 / Khulna, Bangladesh)

A Phoenix Bird


A dream burns within a dream
In springtime, I saw how butterflies unclog her wings!
Aye, I stretched to grasp goatish love
I mislaid all my known ways for thee

New destiny is always wandering me,
One straight path to another meandering path-
As river flows from waterfall to ocean-
A twilight horizon to another dark horizon

Still I heard the very fast,
Vicious passing sound of my dream darling
My wounded orphan dream,
threw at recycle bin repeatedly-

Recycling- soul forces attract love's gravity,
twist heart and soul- again and again
Still strain to resurrect as a phoenix bird-

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
