SEMITONES

Stopping breaths
Flower of dream opens
Mozart’s music

Quivering softness
March gathers
Bamboo flute resonating

A mind probing 
Limitless fathom
Rudra Veena vibrates

A spring moon sinks
Beneath my heart
Listening to Yanni
***


FOOD LOVER’S DIARY

A winter ripens
Delightful soaking in love
Nalen Gur’s Rasogolla

Utmost tender girl
I touched her breasts
Mouthful of Fuchka 

It’s greed
Leaking chocolate secretly
A plate of Papri-chat

Dream follows despair
Not catching cinema on time
A puff of Jhalmuri
***


OH! CALCUTTA

Bright emptiness there
The unknowing skyscrapers
Newtown embraces me

Keeping to each other
Young couple shares lunch
Busy Newmarket around 2 P. M.

A bouquet of dreams
Morning rain drenched it
My childhood at Maniktala

Can’t imagine more
Translucent neon of silence
Chowringee at 3 A. M.
