Emotional Deluge

by pranabaxom

I wrote this poem in my mother tongue, Axomiya(Assamese) a few days back and posted in my blog ( on July 26, 2018.  I have a few Bengali friends from my college days with whom I share my poems.  Whenever I share a poem written in Assamese with them, I try to translate that to Bengali for their benefit. I do not claim any strength in writing in Bengali.  So if any of my reader finds my Bengali translation inadequate, I apologise.  Constructive criticism is appreciated as that will help me to improve my translation skill in future.

I translated the poem to English and sharing all the three versions here, English followed by the original Assamese and then the Bengali translation.

If I am swept away someday
In an emotional deluge
Please stand by me
Be my rock
A pillar of patience

Mind’s Eye Pictures II

What is it with words
that by cause or by guile
Serve day by day
to give reason to smile?

Your Kiss

by markfahmy


You plant a kiss on my lips
and inside my soul you grow
lush gardens of swaying trees
and exotic flowers only you would know

Can a cigarette warm
the coldness of a soul
that stopped giving a damn
about it all?

Can a touch restore
the blood into the veins
of a body that’s been buried
under a million chains?

How can you give up on the only self..
that never gave up on you?

How can you put a full stop to a story..
that involves other people too?

And you’re everything I need
Sometimes you forsake me

Come, a cocktail for you
For your mixed feelings
In this hurricane of words

When the skies were wide
And you longed for a game
You loved to stir thoughts
And floated on cubes of wonder

Daily Poem — Partly Father

by paturnerlee

Partly Father
Tricked into sandpaper chewing

Teeth grate on the fire

My Senior Service dangling from chapped and dry lips

I ponder my cousins dreams

In a silk lined coffin

Poem of the Day — Sounds not Sense

by paturnerlee

Poor quality, astride a whistling pony

Saddled with another days paper trail

Terror applied to shattered amulets

On a concrete terrace

Festooned with cracked eggs, shells in crumpled shimmering detail

You used to sing when I was down

Since I’ve seen you around

Mountain of Regret

by Tiffany Layne

Someday you’ll reach the top of the mountain of regret
You’ll look around and realize the destruction that you left
Like a hurricane that swirled around raining down the massive floods
You wiped us out, left us nothing, dragging us through the mud.

Poem of the Day — Slope Peak

by paturnerlee

Slope Peak

Crest fallen, wilting, makeshift bin clattering resonance

The class breaks up for Christmas

seemingly tortured in troubled playtime kiss scenes

A cobbled street tinkles with chains; left by market share holders

Poem of the Day — Bin Meant for Scenery

by paturnerlee

Bin Meant for Scenery

Crackle toed, hint of gin

Speed bumps, clapped in jocular splendour

Climate: school devoured dinners raided on a Saturday Night

Siren ringing ears and passers by splashed in bright lights

A focus on fashionable façades

Poem of the Day — Swappist

by paturnerlee


A bang all whisky, slashed incredulous, discovery channel promotion

In tantric emotion

Rubbed out, rolled and picked together, crushed in ambiguity

Conduit for disaster, stuffed but pleased

A chagrin, a red blue lament

Cast in out of date dried cement: joined together like mushy peas

Poem of the Day — Stuck in a Cage

by paturnerlee

Stuck in a cage
The wind blows outside, the rivets screwed into the floor rattle

Clouds jangle and merge and brush aside each other

My frozen heart clasps the gates shut

Shallow belief clasps the breast bone of pain tight against the lungs

Ten Little Fingers, Ten Little Toes

There were ten little fingers and ten little toes
And before I knew it, off he goes
Across the room into his Daddy’s arms.

Poem of the Day — Spliced

by paturnerlee

Teachers disco a bumbling twirl of ridiculous clothing

A two-tone jacket competion

I feel like a brogue fitting haircut

The one with the smell of the seaside

And grease scraped onto a razor blade
