    At The Demise - Of A Bird

    The Spring came.

    The green leaves

    She spread along with

    Fresh new air.

    And an uncontrolled

    desire to meet with

    became eager

    in all his branches.

    But she did not

    turn up,did not turn up along

    with her twinkling

    little smile;

    And restive trees

    restlessness at last

    stopped for ever.

    The baby girl called

    2/66

    her mother___

    See mamma how beautiful

    the bird is!with all its last strength

    it looked up.

    Shedding all her ornaments

    Evening covered the

    little bird with

    goldlike affection

    of immortality.

    How dreadfully black

    is the cloud !

    What vision-erasing

    tremendous Rains !

    On the bosom of the

    dense darkness

    Lightning -- a symbol

    of danger !

    All will be quiet

    one day doubtlessly.

    But shall I ever see

    the Sunrise?

    Only once , once only.

    I do not remember

    when on an auspicious moment

    the wheels of my chariot

    gained speed__

    a speed which reflected

    millions molecules of

    Light ,

    Atmosphere became

    full of vivacity

    New Life came into existencethrough that violence of creation.

    I got shelter,

    I know one day

    my island will be flooded ;

    Where should I take

    shelter in which island again?

    Will I be alone at that time

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    6/66

    in the cloudless blue sky?

    Carrying the rays of

    the setting Sunat which island

    I will fly & fly to

    have some shelter for rest?

    Would I get my

    Life Partner?

    Would I get the

    shelter of an island

    surrounded by coconut trees?

    Thou might have hadnt

    thousands of years

    dwellers wish you welcome!

    Thou the son

    of Eternity , the traveler

    round thousands of light yearsof Time! We welcome you .

    of creation life was

    still to have some form

    He was restlesssuffering in pains

    beyond description

    under the Sea____

    at that auspicious moment

    you came to Being.

    Since then

    Just like

    a broken-hearted

    hungry skeleton tranquility called me.

    I heard and heard

    and then

    I have turned myself

    into an exhausted

    half dead skeleton

    I , therefore ,

    want to leave this world

    and move to somewhere

    where I might discover

    the Image of Silent Death,

    a lying dead body.

    And in that calm & quiet ,

    Icy hill of North & South Polemay beckon to take rest

    for ever & ever.

    Pitiful lamenting cry

    of millions

    Surely enter into

    their dried up bosoms

    and make them terrified.

    Times unchangeable

    principle make them

    terrified

    and aimless thinking

    tells heavily on

    the murderers.

    Oh God! Thanks full

    of gratitude!

    In their death

    their limited airy existence

    spread far and wide

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    11/66

    through you as a centre

    of boundless inspiration

    them to spread far and wideall over the world.

    Oh God!

    we want peace

    the peace that shines

    like the rising Sun

    spreads its soft shine

    on paddy plants

    and make the farmer couples

    brightening face , the

    peace that achieves permanent

    shelter in between

    the lover & beloveds

    lips

    and above all

    the peace that

    displays

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    12/66

    joy of a baby

    in the bosom

    of loving mother.A.Chakraborty..

    In thy death

    I gained life.

    I did find myself out

    In an unknown

    ever alive condition.

    I knew myself anew.

    I found my life

    where Time is endless

    continuous Entity.

    I saw , I came

    to know

    Thou art Continuous

    and Immortal

    I remember you.

    Its as if like

    an ice cold wave

    which has come out

    from the dense depth

    of forgetfulness

    Creates some

    feeling of sweet air

    in parts of heart.

    Heart is never

    an organ only.

    Its the poetry of life.

    Through the torn away

    pages of life,

    it brings inuntouchable but lovely turning from

    some heavenly abode.

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    Today in this beautiful

    morning

    Touch of memory

    made me woke up .

    Across the far away landscape

    cause floating an

    immortal Swat song

    lyrics started turning

    Awoke the picture

    The picture that life

    is only an immortal

    sensation.

    O Lord , those who carry

    on Thy message into this world

    their dreamy lips

    turn pale and

    powerless.

    Ferocious Death with its

    cruel lash turn

    their holy persons

    a dreadful bloody sight

    into this earth.

    Innumerable people of

    pain-struck earth become

    a sight as if millions

    & millions of diseased humanity

    have beenbreathing their last breath.

    O Lord!

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    17/66

    Behind their coffins

    follow the silent procession

    of so called humanity.They are full of tears,

    aimless symbol

    of eternal poverty ,

    But then too , they have

    settled themselves down .

    Where is light?

    How far?

    When?

    Everyday I pray

    Let me have success

    in life .

    I know not

    whats the measuring

    pick of Success__

    Is it peace , or happiness

    or Prosperity or honour?

    When I wake up

    in the morning

    I repeat -- Success please.

    When through my

    ester window

    let through golden

    sunray on tomy bed

    I get struck dumb

    --Ah what a peace!

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    19/66

    Time passes__

    Sometime negligenceand dishonour

    brings in a taste

    of failure.

    I pray again -- Success please!

    Having crossed 60 long

    years of life.

    The pot of inner mind

    has been heavy with

    memory & experience

    bitterness , injustice

    complaints__ and

    all around them , I

    feel my heart with the

    taste of joy and glory.

    All are transient !

    A moment before death

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    20/66

    if the thought that I

    have done what all

    I had to do,I will feelI have

    achieved success.

    Now I am free.

    Clouds bring in rains

    and also carry

    message of endless

    pain of the ocean.

    Thats why it sheds tears.

    I am aware of that.

    Thats why even now

    when I suddenly get awake

    my mind rushes

    towards the Sea

    with the rushing clouds

    where I know once

    I got fulfilled my dream.

    So I shed tears !

    A.Chakraborty..

    Let the sea be foamy.

    Let the high waves

    make the hills angry.

    And then ,

    I may get a peaceful abode.

    After a long search for it

    seems I have become tired.

    Ocean has no end.

    Call of horizon

    may be , made the Sea

    a homeless vagabond.

    May be , once upon a time

    the Sea came to listen

    the beckon call of an island

    full of birds songsurrounded by beauty

    of coconut trees.

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    23/66

    Oh my Lord!

    that island is no more

    visible,And so the tired wings

    of that bird still now

    flaps and seek for

    shelter in the dense dark.

    Should I , at all , have

    any shelter any day?

    Have I not become

    the symbol of stony

    and stony mountains?

    Would my heart ever

    be like a vast pond

    full to the brim

    in the rains?

    May be , the bird

    with golden rays of Sun

    on its wings will find

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    24/66

    an island where it

    will gain the peace of

    eternal sleep.A.Chakraborty..

    I could , not talk any more.

    I remained silent!

    Light of the eyes

    came to an end

    It became night altogether

    for me.

    No movement , no life

    yet , I turned into

    a lively corpse

    for ever.

    Dream moves on along

    with white Kites

    flapping wings.

    Shineless Sun declares

    Noon is going

    to be over.

    Birds of variety make

    groups for flight

    by the side

    of yellow farming lands

    towards their nests.

    Then their come

    white herons

    under the red sky

    as if a Rainbow.In the frame of

    my mind the picture

    is eternal.

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    27/66

    So I feel exhausted

    within the boundaryof four walls.

    16Is the sky so little?

    Is the air so limited?

    Oxygen is at being

    finished in no time,

    but where is fire?

    Long Long ago

    one morning

    the aborigin human

    that sparked the first fire

    of civilization,

    ultimately Present Civilization

    strangled it to

    almost dead.

    Even then

    I dream

    I dream of Peace ,

    Truth and Tranquility.

    17Your flower garden

    does not attract

    my attention any longer.

    May be they are

    still beautiful ,

    but I do not feel

    any reflection of

    their beauty

    on the screen of my mind.

    What a curse it is !

    Having you lost

    I have lost my all

    mental faculties.

    Having Lost My Beloved

    I am tired , half dead

    at the beckon

    of a hungry, tattered

    skeleton like Peace.

    I want to separate

    myself at a place

    of Peace

    where under the sea

    full of liquid poison

    a drowned body may achieve

    silent unmoved

    atmosphere of Peace

    in the icy hills of Poles.

    White stars are bloom

    in the garden.

    I failed to enjoy them

    ever before.

    When I woke up

    with the morning stars

    in my eyes

    My heart my self

    remembered you

    and from

    under the clouds

    just like a ray of Sun

    came out your smile.

    White herons are a-float

    I perceived long ago-

    Again I saw them a new.Surprising!

    How the old sight was

    still alive in my heart?

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    32/66

    I , too ,want to survive

    in somebodys heart

    not for ever , but for a moment.A.Chakraborty..

    I seek for your shelter.

    Myself fatigued both

    physically & mentally.

    Receive me

    Embrace me

    Addiction of red wine

    should spread in

    each & every part

    of my body

    and make me enchanted.

    I want to witness my life

    in the shade of your

    lightening body.

    Oh Saki!why wont I die at

    this moment?

    Why not Earth lose

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    34/66

    its motion for ever?

    And Time become as still

    as the bottom of the Sea?Today or tomorrowI know ,

    the Earth will lose its motion

    and then we shall enjoy

    ourselves with

    all at ease.

    I am still alive in that

    Let me attain my

    freedom in the

    overwhelming light

    of the great Universe.

    Oh the Great Cradle

    me like the tune

    of the song ,

    Let my expressions

    be clear like the

    turning of Lyre

    while in the air moving

    hither and thither

    everywhere!

    Cherishing the dream

    of a new worldlet me have a new

    birth in a novel

    world.

    36/66

    With the advent

    of a new civilization.

    Let my self-sacrifice ,demolition and suffering

    from odds be a success.

    I am older than the

    Earth

    I am immortal

    Under the wheel of

    my chariot

    So many worlds

    got motionless and

    were demolished and

    got lost forever.

    So let me open my

    eyes in another world.

    All tasks done for today.

    I long for peace for a while.

    I have received the signal

    from the flapping wings of

    home coming birds.

    Every morning

    I think

    Now its time to take adieu

    To depart somewhere

    across hills and mountains.

    I know nothing

    about the princess

    lying with golden and silver

    sticks , by her head and feet.

    I know not anything

    of a store of gold and diamonds

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    38/66

    in the royal palace

    I do not know

    like whirling hot dustwhere shall I settle at last.

    Having lost one

    I have lost

    Everything I had,

    as the desert

    of the deserts

    Sahara has lost

    all joys of life.

    The same I too

    suffered burying down

    all the joys of my heart

    I have , as if , lost

    all of a sudden,

    what I had saved

    in wealth and treasury of ecstasy

    without knowingHow it had happened so.

    Yet I survive , I am dynamic

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    in the infinite revolution

    of the Earth

    just like a skeletonof flesh and blood.

    *The dream it Be dream for others-

    not for me*

    I like green

    I like white

    White covers all

    Green is bright.

    Black I shouldnt hate

    If Black is kept by whites side

    White gets brighter.

    Make a comparison

    between the two

    and find the reality

    Which is who.

    Its all over with me;

    But the world is there,

    So I lived it and so I leave

    the dream I cherished.

    Approaching Darkness

    Approaching darkness

    Indication of Starting homeward.

    But alas ! My home

    is unknown to me.

    I do not know too

    who is waiting for me.

    Is there anybody really?

    Or dreadful darkness

    waits for me?

    Tell me what should I have?

    Wouldnt I see a lady

    like lamp light

    She will be my guide

    in this dense dark

    airless world.

    I have my past

    I will have my future

    __both like a dried up rivulet.

    My present?

    Bonny Skeleton

    covered with a

    dried up skin,

    My past was an aimless

    directionless whirlwind misdirected.

    as if a picture of

    a tormented dying animal

    I desire to

    brush away all that

    __Past , Present , Future.

    It comes to me__

    let me turn intoa mommy of Egypt__

    Lifeless , Static __

    an exhibit only in the

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    market of the world.

    And then waiting and

    waiting fora volcanic eruption

    will be alive.

    Today or Tomorrow

    One day through

    Lifes moving

    up and up

    I will achieve

    Immortality .

    That day Time will halt

    just by the side

    of myself

    as if Mahakals

    commanding word

    Stop like

    a violent wave

    suddenly silenced

    for good.

    That day shedding theliving body

    dying a death of

    black -stained

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    46/66

    adversities of

    daily life.

    That is the day

    on which I shall achieve

    immortality.

    I want to reach that point

    where the Time Movement

    all have attained

    eternal Silence

    where covered with Peace

    I get the Life beyond

    the day to day life.

    Oh Lord! Let my end come

    at that Immortality.

    Thronging black clouds all around.

    Palacial walls around me

    made me as if in a prisoned house.

    Today I realized

    what is the pain of captivity.

    I thought I would open my doors,

    and let the violent storm

    would break into pieces

    to let me fly high

    over and over

    where there is flopping

    of king of birds Gadura.

    That day I thought I would

    start on my way.

    Golden green Parrot will have

    yellow dot on its forehead.

    And, across the

    milky sea of FairyTales

    My mind will start sailing

    across mount of Stones and pearls

    and at last reach the

    palace of Pasowati,

    the Rakshas queen

    in disguise of a Beauty.

    There floats a face

    in my faded mind-

    a forgotten, beautiful

    face.

    It has become beauty of

    never seen glorious Ajanta

    and Ellora

    The artist in me

    in all probability

    for ages crossing

    over uncountable

    revolution of earth

    silent , unquiet

    restless- and

    bright with the dream

    of creation..The unseen which

    wants to be bound

    by coming in the

  • 8/8/2019 Dadu's Poems

    50/66

    light of a bright view

    Oh yes! probably

    it may express itselfin a totality and

    completely expressive

    in its entire form

    in a sweet morning

    or in a clear

    moonlit night

    or in my pain-struck

    skin of mind.

    Having crossed the

    stony walls and hills

    My mind rushes away.

    The address of the

    lovely princess

    lying asleep with golden

    and silvery sticks

    at her head and leg side

    is unknown to me,

    I Know not

    any giant store

    of stones, pearls and gold.

    I do not know where my mind

    is likely to gainstationary stay

    just like a hot whirlwind!

    I am an artist

    I draw pictures

    carrying no meaning at all-

    and no rhythm also.

    They are only the

    creation of an artist

    of no fame-- only

    some disturbing

    sketches of no systematic

    discipline.

    Sometimes I feel startled

    I call myself a

    man being of distorted

    personality.

    I vowed I would

    create something great .And so again and again

    whenever I try to make

    the abstract Beauty

    a Reality,

    I get lost in a

    current of whirlwindIs it true?

    Or I am not a failure?

    One day my creation

    will gain Spring

    of Eternity.

    If the sky could have the

    capacity to speak ,

    I too might have

    endowed with

    that skill.

    If the air would be

    alive

    I would have been

    blessed with life.

    In a vast

    world I remained

    speechless without

    any movement.

    My lifeless mindbecame restless

    with the pang of

    expressing itself,

    My Stony soul became

    restless in its

    endeavour tomove..

    but alas! restless mind

    became silent ,

    the stony soul lost

    its to move

    any farther!

    Oh the Earth! Be a

    bit more green!

    with the light of

    expression let

    your dark bosom

    be bright.

    Lone bird!

    Tired wings!

    Colorless Past!

    When did I start?

    And whence?

    The rising Sun!

    The sinking Sun!

    Where should I land?

    When ? Can anybody tell me?

    Oh! The twinkling eyes of night

    Why are you so dark?

    Forgotten path

    Lost Horizonceaseless moving still!

    The black clouds!

    The black devils

    The torn sky

    Helpless floating.

    Ah! The island

    Coconut trees

    And there , there

    My sweet heart ,

    At last I am

    with thee.

    Time is almost up

    could no grow anything

    fruitful.

    A tremendous whirlwind

    tattered all my aims

    along with me.

    What a creation!

    Meaningless! worthless!

    But I wanted to survive

    to survive under the sky,

    in the air trading

    over field after field.

    I wanted to survive

    through eternity

    in the form of fruit flower

    and what not?I lost the power

    of speech

    I became silent.

    Light of eyes

    turned getting

    dim & dim.I myself became

    the darkness of night.

    I became breathless

    without any movement

    Oh! yes I turned

    into a lively

    Corpse.

    On one remote

    morning of first

    creation---

    the first man

    of my liking

    lit the light

    in the yard of

    the ill surrounded

    civilization

    ---that has been lost.

    Turning into a

    dead body

    I filled my breath

    with the smell of

    rotten Earth.Dream is still there

    A heavenly sweet smell

    I scent as if from a

    long past & unknown future.

    My fossil will count& count and wait

    for that to come.

    Hand in Hand

    Speech Speechless

    Heart full with

    ecstasy

    just like an

    everflowing

    rivulet full of

    calm and quiet

    Speechless emotion.

    Alas! when I come

    Back home now ,

    where is She?

    Heart trembles

    Mind boggles

    Where are you?Where are you?

    Light that

    is no more there,

    no , moreAnd never to come

    On the sight of Tajmahal

    I do not know where

    towards which sacred place

    you boat still sails away!

    Towards on the way to

    a Star

    still you sail still bright

    your boat.

    Just like dried up flowers

    fallen down the branches

    that still long for anotherspring - new , brilliant ,

    ecstatic.

    Oh the emperor!

    you might have been

    a traveler on the way

    to Eternity-

    It may happens so

    Heavenly people

    have welcomed you

    with flowers , garlandsand well adorned lamps

    that enhances your

    imperial dignity farther

    and farther.

    Most beautiful ladies might

    have thrown away their

    extra special ornaments at

    your feet.

    You are immortal.

    Your passage

    never allows you

    to stop.

    You are ever bright

    You are

    immortal!
