Poems by Asoke Kumar Mitra



Your melody melts into one sweet harmony-
Sound of flute and violin
Spreads wings endless
My heart longs to join
Melts into your melody…

My dreams spread wings
Across the seven seas
Your melody breaks
Rain clouds have come to my window
With the murmur of fallen leaves

Far away from my heart
You keep gazing on the far-away mountain
Your melody brings no sleep tonight
Dark clouds over the sky
And it rains ceaselessly

Your melody burning me
With the fire of desire
I have fallen asleep
In the midnight rain
With your melody…



Please leave your window open
Rain birds will come with morning breeze
Birds will sing a journey of love

Keep the door open
East wind,north wind, south wind, west wind
Come with secret steps…

A solitary wayfarer,in this deserted street
Now you ask
What is the time

Our desires are plenty
Keeping our words behind
In this morning sea of silence

Our drowsy murmur
And the winds
Lifeless cadaver lies serenely.


Love For Grass Flower…

That glittering clouds of looming sky
Don’t close your door to love
Clumsy corridors of life
Knowing no boundaries
Love grows, a relationship grows

The warmth
The fire
Torrents of passion
An apprehension

Did you run in the rain
Counting raindrops
Carrying a bouquet of red rose
Did you take a dip
In the sea water
Did you talk to the flowers
The flute plays a tune
I forgot long back

Grass flower blooms
Speaks of joyous heart…



You a wildflower
Blooming in the hills
With the unsung passion of your heart

You asked the wind
To bring me
A whiff of your fragrance

My song come between
With a touch of pain
I ask the cloud
From where you come…

A strange fragrance in the wind
Never pluck this little flower
The far-away song in emptiness

And fragrance pass by like a dream…

  1. Lilting, dreamlike, deeply romantic … Perfect reading on a warm summer’s night, or deep in dead of winter. A wonderful poet who speaks to the romantic in all of us.
