Basab Mondal: Poetry (Life, Cognition and Creativity)

Basab Mondal
Obituary 

Dew,like embers 
spark and vanish,on the
green undergrowth, which is
bathed by the slanting light 
of the half-eaten moon.

The puddle of hope
hiding deep in the 
murky diaspora of my broken heart,
tries to break,the shackles 
of obscurity. 

But dissolves 
in the palimpsest of time.
***


The call

I try to comprehend 
what the bees 
murmur to the flowers.

The nectar being robbed, 
the flowers dance
unperturbed.

Staring at my,
small terrace garden
feasty with bright foliage,
I love cleaning my false eyelashes 
trying to become 
a vagabond at heart.
