Saumyajit Acharya


Keep six stages for him
And twelve awards for the other

Then make me tree....

When the face is burnt by the lights of glamour
When the awards are as heavy as wet cotton
These and those people will walk down the tree
They will removes all colours with leaves
And the lights will be faded off by the bark

Make me the tree

Successively standing still
for the tired racing people ...



The deaf stands before the bell
It is ringing --
Summer ...

There stands the deaf
The bell swings ---
Moonsoon time ...

The deaf stands before
the bell is ringing --

This season just before winter
Cease the bell
The deaf will speak something
Standing before the tree

Topic : songs of birds and roar of the sea.

Climbing up the wall


Have to cross the wall
So , I have pinned nails on every brick.
trampling their shoulders
I will climb up the wall.

I am mounting my first step
And thinking of getting a big lake on the other half
And after the second mount
It appears , a unended forest at the other .

Crossing the steps , one by one
I am climbing up the wall

Only I cannot cross myself ....
