 CLASSIC WATER AND GEOMETRIC LIFE 

Haven’t you experienced water!

Having smelled pre-historic water,

you can notice it is purely simplified.

Life is geometrically formative too

Through a shower of classic water.

Earthen productivity, smiling corn, 

Floating life-time in low-down water, 

Endless march of Adam’s children 

All are geometrically ridged in the map.

Don’t you sense the science of water?

The universal cycle revolves with 

Water cycle.

House of God is on creative water

That rolls to the ocean straightly

Producing vapour, clouds and rain 

Water runs to the sea through drains,

Canals and rivers in a cyclic order.

Would you really like having water?

Give out the fragrance of your wet hair 

Like raindrops in a nonstop shower.

INERTIA

All types of modernity obviously a black sea 

While it’s an inertia.

Still covered my poetic corridor 

With some modern grasses. 

Symbolic moons try to remove darkness

Even though they know little how to cross

A black sea.

Then, is it pre-historic or nonconforming? 

My poetic pulse begins to beat 

With some ordinary words and 

Makes a poetical hut.

An advanced city looks back to a moon

Brightening archaeological Harappa, and

I open all of my windows to enjoy 

A post-modern morning.

I’m neither symbolic nor a saint of words

I’m to touch reality with an intuitive turn,

And cross the modernism 

At least like a pre-historic world 

Freely rounds the sun.

A THOUGHTFUL KITE

Opened a website of the sky

For an endless quest of experience.

Grey sky has worn a widow’s sari 

With shuttled clouds to and fro.

And above there is a cerulean ocean 

Of a tranquil cover.

Going round all the planets

In a regulation.

In fact, there is nothing to be endless

Hence, the thoughtful kite runs after

In quest of boundary and starts 

To the north 

In a motive to touch the edge.

After crossing the North Hemisphere, 

It is thrown into outer-space 

Alike nothingness. 

Experience is nothing but the lost aeroplane

In Bermuda Triangle, broken Discovery

Or Pathfinder on Mars.

Is the Logic final option? 

Then where is the border of nothingness? Nothing has no border for its infinity.

Therefore, how the infinity could be existent

While extremely everything is to be limited. 

The thoughtful kite keeps constant circling 

In the skyline——

Then a cycle of fallacy dominates 

The brain-monitor creates a grey-illusion;

Here-after an astral sky of night starts 

To flash the red signal.

Declining the moon the vanishing sky comes down 

Into my eyes with a sleep 

Alike a dead-planet and killed the website.

Sitting on the top of the tree 

An aerial mother-kite is hatching her eggs.

A GRASS PROJECT        

From the pre-historic time 

I’ve been walking through this planet

My worldly visit took its road through

Babylon

Now stepped in such a territory which is,

In fact, a panoramic internet 

Of numerous rivers.

In this river basin

A huge and historic human habitation 

Green fields, mountains and forest sides

Made its landscape to outstanding sketches

Bangladesh is the name of this green Delta.

Miles after miles                         

I’ll walk by the side of small rivers, 

Green corn-fields and greener villages.

In the overwhelmed scent of green grasses

I will sleep full of spell-bound night.

I smelt it in the spiritual world 

While the angels were moving fast

With the grass, leaves, seeds and semen etc.

It was then mixed with my sensation.   

Just changed my world from one to many

Actually I’m who was green all the time

Like the grass.                                         

On this planet I’ve come with a grass-project

I’ll grow perpetual grass and observe

How much green 

The living being will have been attained.

 I’M IN MY EXISTENCE 

While thoughtful Descartes

Of whether he was existent or not,

Sitting in my corridor, 

My wife cut fish then.

Out of my courtyard 

Some goats were eating grasses

Taking dust in their handful

Naughty boys started throwing 

From each other.

Coming back airing dust

Domestic cow herd 

Just before sunset

The sun was going down 

With a colourful exhibition

Having kissed by the departing sun

The leaves had to fall asleep.

There was a hurry in the ferry

From the river

Returning village wives 

With the pitcher full of water

Hanging all the beauties 

Of the evening

In the neck of the pitcher 

And moving with creating 

An artistic swing.

Perceptive all these

How could I refuse? 

Descartes started to swim 

in the essence

And said,

“I think, therefore I am.”

A SURREAL LOVE 

Heavily touched a untouched healthy cheek

To touch an impossible reality

Sensitivity knows it’s not in fortune

Yet leave a bait subconsciously to be happy

She is none in the sense lonely noon knows

Even so lighted a darling dawn calling crows
