Indranil Bhaduri

Rookie - 121 Points (Kolkata, India)

She Walked


She walked in the midnight hours
With some fond memories.
Her road ahead was unknown
As changes had begun!
Life took a sharp unforeseen turn
As intimacy crumbled,
And sensuous rain came to a standstill.
The heart shuffled its colours
From dazzling light to pitch darkness!
She took her stride...
With a dry flower in hand
From the native graveyard,
Longing furthermore
With her deepest will
For gaining strength
To step into a new world,
Thus pursuing the blurred mirage
Of lost paradise...

    She should have walked with cautious steps and the distance covered already is quite long!
    The last phase may be with little suffering we hope.
    What is great about this poem is Indrani Bhaduri`s precise and meticulous rendering of the thoughts into a short and meaningful write of the kind. The diction has been apt and meaningful. (Report) Reply

    Not everything is lost! Hope lingers! The gates of paradise can open anytime! Though the poem started on a melancholic tone, the positive note at the close is relieving! Greatly enjoyed! ! (Report) Reply

    Paradise was lost but then it was regained. Sometimes we find
    ourselves plunged in the valley of despair. Sooner or later we
    see the light at the end of the tunnel and dig ourselves out.
    Please read my poem Valley of Despair. Loved this one. (Report) Reply

    I had to read this a couple of times and I still wonder whether there is a multitude of meaning in it. A shade of melancholy increases the richness of this write. Good one sir (Report) Reply

    Paradise from the Greek word paradiesos meaning royal (enclosed) park.
    Paradise the place where Adam and Eve were expelled from.
    Was this poem about an Eve? Love exists in the heart, has she been expelled from someone's heart.
    In ancient Greece love existed in the liver, '' quiver my liver. ''
    Let me stop now or I will bore you forever. (Report) Reply
