Treasure Island

Musfiq us shaleheen

(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 Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
