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

by hands I know not
found its stairs
on silver feet
to distances I dare not

Stones, rolled down her eyes
And the meadows, found a sky
Rain clasped wanderlust leaves
Rolled up a breeze in her moment

 *Alliteration Poem – Prayer*

2nd Oct’17  ~by Venkat

Pray palms, pray pines
Pond, pelican, pink plumes
Ponder plaintive pebbles
Ponder pensive parrots
Psalms, prophecies, peace,

Make my moments melt

Red Admiral

by Jem Croucher

There for a fleeting moment
Red Admiral on the wall
Grabbed my camera quickly
‘Good call’, I hear, ‘Good call’

    Shot snakes, of venom
    Bundled in yarns of thorn

why does each moment
need to be on the tip
of a high end cliff
ready to blast ahead
into a flight of pleasure
or a deep dive into pain

shiver they not from icy past shadows
cringe not ever from fires tall, to come

In this moment

by Devina


In this single moment

So many things can happen

Altering life as we know it

In so many different ways

Live this very moment

As best as you can

It’s different, unique

Unlike any other and always

Subject to change

The Moment I Knew

by blackandwhiteartist

I’VE BEEN waiting
Not searching
Because I knew I’ve known you

Long before I met you
You’re the one
I knew
The moment I saw you

I felt something
Something I just can’t explain
Something that is totally different
but then, something familiar
