Poverty of screams. A Poem by Sonnet Mondal

 
 
In the tattered parts of the hand woven fibres
naked poverty of screams
amid roaring drunk waves of wine bottles
whirling in synthesis with partying proverbs
echoes against posthumous walls
to add the colors to a faded terrain
sipping dripping sweats of a dead beat life
which has spent decades to get up from work
to smile at the gone days.
  
Foliage and twigs rejuvenate themselves
with the waters discarded out of the musical chair game
with splashing music dying out
in swimming strokes of fatigued hands.
  
Each day swimming fog blurs smiles
Crawling clouds dance with tears
and changing seasons paint poignant outbursts
yet the little life left in some corner
takes a swing in the estate
where a Rolls-Royce warms up each evening
and Rolexes add motion to stillness.

Enigmatic Winds. A Poem by Sonnet Mondal

 
  
Enigmatic winds
curl up into fragments of breezes
drilling into the death of winter
embracing the hologram of breathing sand.
  
River beds,
as they embark
upon the edges of southern winds
and Conifers scream their complaints from the north,
focus of life desolately oscillates
as a beacon  from light houses
with paws of the carrier Griffin
proceeding in the shades,
improvising posthumous caveats
popping up as robot heads of night guards.
  
Pages of an expedition
crumble beneath old pirate-ships
(roaming in a nomadic famine struck by avarice)
fall in and spread again
upon the cushion of rootless waters
led by enigmatic winds
in unfolded folds of untold tales.

Unusual Shiver in Winter Days. Poem by Sonnet Mondal

 
  
She was a creeping winter,
coiling and settling into the wardrobe
of my lined collections-
  
of cassettes and clothes
(Scattered in a bachelor’s room)
  
Suits arranged by brands
fragranced by sensuous nights
brought by you molded me
into a gentleman
below uncombed hairs
and unwashed hands.
  
I was into lessons to be clean
while
I was feeding on my love.
  
From a scrappy life
beside a pond
abound with weeping cranes
she was the only fish
in front of my hungry beaks.
  
Short-lived and destructive
as most pleasures are
I am wedged back
into an untidy shiver
  
from an act worthy of no mercy.
