Treasure Island

Musfiq us shaleheen

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

A Spot of Star Never Erased

I sat on the wall that was not so high
But I saw that star dropped from the sky
It came to me not to the sky
My hands were touched that but
It was not in my hand at all
I tried to count all stars but saw one short
Father called me for sleeping at early night
At midnight he slept before and beside me
I count all those stars again and again but
Repeatedly one short,
Sleep turned me at dark
I was sure that I slept on his chest
And Havens Aroma covered,
my nose and nerves
At dawn I rose early and saw
I was not on his chest,
even he left me alone
in a dark and smoke-
But after washing my hand I saw a
Spot of star at my right hand
It never erased but shine
Even after washed by Soap or Ashes-
