Treasure Island

Musfiq us shaleheen

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

Alone


Waves of time fall on my mind-
Alone I hear murmur of dry leaves
Still I become baffled
when I heard drifting sound of continental edge

Dark overlaid on my Shadow adult young
Silence of memories called me under dusk
You are not there, ‘O' you are not there
But Shadow pinch-hit the farthest face

No bird sings today, everybody gone through
Thee (friends) are moving with bright star
The moon lies in murky under cloud pang
You are not there, oh! You are not there

Time may be stand on impact of mystic flute
I heard of your very vicious passing,
sound of metaphysical rain-
My heart is as dry as a desert may be,
looping through time-
I am alone and alone as like as a void sky without any star

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Time may be stand on
impact of mystic flute
I heard of your very
vicious passing,
sound of metaphysical rain
My heart is as dry as
a desert may be,
looping through time
I am alone and alone as
like as a void sky
without any star

    Being alone can be good and bad at times. It is good when it
    gives us the time to reflect on things in a good way. It is not so
    good when we think and ponder about the bad thing and what
    could have been. A soul stirring poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
