Essentials of Living: Supatra Sen (Poetry)

Supatra Sen
To an Enchantment called Life

A green corner with stories galore
An armchair in sync with the sun… and more
An open window with curtains apart
To let me know when seasons come and depart
Music and quiet, sounds and sights 
Are often more than mere delights
A part of both the breeze and gale
Idly gaze at clouds set sail
See them form and change and scatter 
Leaves born to bloom and wither 
So learn that nothing’s here to stay 
Whate’er we may warily find or gather
Travel endless miles in mind and wings
Remaining still till the spring birds do sing
Though fairies are real their magic true
To believe in them are just a few
And so one day will life change its way
As true as the night that follows each day…
