When The Seagulls Recite My Lonliness / Poem by Kamrul Islam

When The Seagulls Recite My Lonliness
 
A lantern in the pocket of a dead tree,
Rows and rows of corpses in the shadows
of sterling songs of rice
In the dreams of unfed farmers…
 
The golden fish stood up
looking at the sky on the full moon,
On the horizon, an eye caught in the
net is sliding towards palm juice,
 
In the distance, the thirsty clouds
lowered the elephant trunk and
absorbing the salty-water of the sea
that weeps with corals at midnight.
 
I don’t have to walk in the clouds
Any more, because I have divorced
the spectre shadows of my thirst
and the prayers of unkind winds…
 
Draw a dark sea in the middle of my heart
and Listen to the wind in the trees
the songs of mature fish… when the
seagulls recite my lonliness, my tears
go back to the sea to embrace the foams…
