Between two rain drops

Between two rain drops

Oct 28

I was falling on the ground between two rain drops. With every single inch towards the  greedy gravity I was thinking how much time I am going to get before getting soaked by the ever thirsty earth. I was falling… falling and… thinking “My every descent is my  every ascent” With a splash I fell on the ground and realized “I fall to rise”.   Md. Shahrear Talukder 28 October 2014 KKU, Gregor,...

Identikittism

Identikittism

Oct 09

Our life is full of certainties and uncertainties, yes or no, right or wrong, resolutions and doubts, completeness or emptiness, ecstasy or melancholy, religiosity or ir-religiosity, piety or impiety, naivety or knavery, life or death. This jugglery of binary oppositions goes on persistently as the flux of river goes on. We feel it individually and collectively. As a person we contribute to all...

Where majority is a minority!

Where majority is a minority!

Sep 29

Md. Shahrear Talukder   Situations are getting topsy-turvy. In a Muslim majority country Muslims are less privileged if one considers the case of Freedom of Expression. Banning on women’s head scarf (Hijab) in different educational institutions has become so rampant that one might question whether Bangladesh is a Muslim majority country. In our constitution in article 2A it has been...

The Single Plane

The Single Plane

Sep 22

Still you are a single plane where mountains high and low exalt the oneness of the Most Powerful without making any difference. Secular clowns’ peculiar juggleries  haven’t reached yet to smudge your unique fabric of brotherhood. Schizophrenic skeptics are brought to balance under one scepter to ensure unbroken peace for today and tomorrow. When outside world is a burning hell, your bell of...

Long before she formed the habit of killing flowers Picking furs from the cat out of sheer delight. She’s got a nice voice with beautiful vocabs that will defeat even the nicest singing crow on earth. People love her words, people admires her every sentence as the source of leisure time amusement. Her theatricality stuns the veteran actors from the Holly-Bolly She stages dramas to lullaby the...

What have you gained killing people in Gaza? What have you gained killing people in West Bank and Ramallah? What have you gained killing people in Homs and Aleppo? What have you gained killing people in Baghdad and Fallujah? What have you gained killing people in Kabul and Kandahar? What have you gained killing people in Cairo and Alexandria? What have you gained killing people in Chechnya? What...

Isn’t it enough?

Isn’t it enough?

Aug 14

Today there’s no poem but the poet Isn’t it enough for you? Words, sentences, stanzas are fragments of me Punctuations never halt my thoughts in few lines. I am more than a poem. You jump from a line to another From a stanza to other to get my thoughts but not me. A poet dies a new man with every new poem.   In thought a poet is not a man but men In person he is a single flesh. Today...

Death You are a dreadful separatist! Even an assassin trembles at your thought.   Death Man hates you are invincible Doctors are busy in making elixir to deceive you.   Death You are a scarecrow in the pasture of life Where even a child fears to go.   Death Your accomplice Time hastens parades to the graves To make you a lethal winner.   Death You separate man when he is...
