2 Poems by Pijush Kanti Deb

A paradise

The keen longing for a paradise,
maybe, a dream or a pet always
but the sky alone is incapable and helpless
to germinate even a tiny flower plant.
A paradise- a luminous and tumultuous garden,
full of blissful flowers and feathery singers-
exhibiting the colours and beauties of fresh life –
and singing the triumph of life as the best.
Paradise – assumed already as a belonging
of life-less heaven- a world of fantasy
but well appreciated and valued
only in the real world of blood and sweat,
well co-operated by open hands and hearts,
germinated on no-where other than the land-
Nurtured, enjoyed and glorified by the mortals
adding the sky to the land---fantasy to the reality
for a spontaneous intercourse -quite significant
for blooming a life in the paradise
and a sweet smile on the thirsty lips
as a consolation- bestowed upon by mother-nature
against the pains and strains of tough reality.

The New Leaves
The turning over a new leaf
throws down the gauntlet
to the luminous sun-rise,
takes aback at the new leaves-
turning their noses at the nectar
and preferring a glass of hemlock to sink.
The blissful neighbors are prompt
to take down the useful epics by turns
yet reluctant they are
to take a leaf out of another’s book.
Alas! Undead robots they are of dead scientists,
programmed diplomatically
and manipulated commercially from top to bottom.
Paralyzed they are too to own eyes
but ambidextrous to their blockhead ears-
Receiving blindly others’ provocation,
bring about untimely spring in consequence
and shed down before their maturity.
Counseling, good wish and blessing-
the glittering pearls are cats and dogs
in shedding on them
yet putting two and two together
seems to be more difficult today.
Nevertheless, tomorrow is quite hopeful
for a giant and effective push-
delivered by an honest morning
capable of breaking their sombrous slumber,
reshaping them to humans from robots
and rewarding them a reformative zeal
to turn over a new leaf forever.
