Aju Mukhopadehyay, IN
 

 

 

Haiku

sitting on a bough
colored sunbird stares at me—
bird’s rapt man-watching.

 

 

Colourful sea
In the cup of my hand;
Infinity!

 

 

 

 

Love like a Statue

So much beauty so much grace
like an ebony statue
beauty overflowing the body and face!

‘Shall I lick suck drench rinse and swab you?
And then whole heartedly swallow up you?’
‘Yes yes, do it please
I surrender completely, at ease!’

Thinking and saying are de facto doing
happiness concurrently overflowing
both the beings;
a situation like this
etched as in a statue
is more enjoyable than to accomplish
or perform the final act
which never sate
causing the frustration to ensue.
