A Green Mirror

Source: Google Image

A green little pond

Is a rare sight in Kolkata these days

Icing on the cake is

There is a blue, blue kingfisher too

Swinging on the cable wire

Loosely hanging over the pond

Pondering perhaps:

To dive or not to dive

In the wink of an eye

It goes in


There’s a silver flash

In its long brown beak

I am fed too

With happiness

How I wish this pond to hold on

To its fish-dream forever

If I had the power

I would hide it

From the greedy eyes of Real Estates

It’s an effort to breathe

Without cease

When each moment

Strives to stifle

It’s giving, embracing

Without a complaint



It’s the gentle breeze

Of candle light

Blowing away

The dusty darkness

It’s burning, melting

Without a stir

Every night
