Weekly Selected Poems: Madhu Gangopadhyay

WHEN NOTHINGNESS ABIDES

Nothingness strikes

Of ideas and thoughts

Despair deep, seeps in!

The gleaming yolk of the sun

The chirping melody

Crispy breeze, all morning fun

The dazzling, resplendent dawn

Fails to excite,

Only nothingness abides!

A black shroud over the mind’s eye

Sooty louvres of despondency

Restrict any ray of hope to penetrate

Hopelessness grips, the inside lacerates!

Morbid fear, endless expanse of desert appears!

I search for the map of Neverland,

Deceptive sand dunes foil my plans!

At the alter of poetry I seek refuge

Words, metaphors seem to elude

A bankrupt poet seeking alms

For inspiration and grace on her palms!

Muse asleep, the mind so fraught

A barren phase much like a drought!

Seeks salvage in Apollo’s light,

The serpentine urge persists

To pen something lofty and bright!

A few lines of peace and joys

Written from the depths of the heart

Be they about the cool autumn days

Or the night moon so coy.

Imbued with passions raw

Sketch some words for a start

Beauty even in dried straw

For simple poetry is a genuine art!
