Treasure Island

Musfiq us shaleheen

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


When chill of silent breeze,
Is blowing from Himalaya-
Fragrances of jasmine flow in air
When my Lora wears white cardigan
Then Sun shines breaks through the fog

Kite, kite –
When my kite flies over the skies
Until fog fills in my eyes
A gay glisten mood, dancing -

When blanket hangs at lane alone
Grand ma weaves woolen sweater for me
When my ma makes ROSER PITHA at evening
And I am waiting till next morning

Kite, kite –
When my kite flies over the skies
Until fog fills in my eyes
A gay glisten mood, dancing -

Drops of dews are sounding in silence
When nightly blanket shorten my head
When sleep covets my eyes feather
A black and white dream stirs at next to

Kite, kite –
When my kite flies over the skies
Until fog fills in my eyes
A gay glisten mood, dancing-

    Silent breeze of cold winter
    Breaks the silence of thought
    During night and day
    With a humming sound of kite-. (Report) Reply
