Poems by Asoke Kumar Mitra


Faded Blues…

The salty autumn sea wind
Sings at the distance,
Blind seagull cries

I remember you, your tears
Chorus of blind birds
My old loneliness

Behind the darkness of dust and rain
Memories whisper to rainbows
Barren frozen moon

Naked shadows in silence
Daydreams, a fantasy
Raven’s wings in infinite ecstasy

You cannot escape, memories often fade
Sharing of dreams
As often I desired you,,,

(C) Asoke Kumar Mitra, October 2018


A secret rain…

A blind wind tonight
Loved the sunflower field
Unleafs the memories
Gently dancing

There will be no prayers
Moon licking the old wounds of love
A wordless desire of this night
Rain-drenched hunger
Rain tossed skies

A secret rain
Kissed her tears away
Rain that washed
Her sorrows

Under the restless sky, she lay wounded…

(C)Asoke Kumar Mitra, October 12-2018, Kolkata,India
