THIS ROAD

This road across the river bed
Makes me remember
Time has passage
For livelihood
For home
With sequence of events
And this river
Turns into a stream,
Again in rainy season
It turns to a monster river.

I stand at one bank and other bank
Is visible as if it is
Parallel line far away
With pillars being constructed
For a long concrete bridge
Along breadth of the river
All objects and all shadows
Just make matter motto:
Cross the river, and reduced the distance
For journey we pertain everyday
For living in busy sprain
We are facing daily like
Nailing a wooden block                                       
For building a make- shift bridge
We are walking on time and again.


The Subarnarekha stays with life and time.

  1. the growth in a river reminds us of life and future.

    a circle, yet full of happiness and sadness.
    loved the metaphor, happy rally.

  2. time speaks of our history and stories.
    a river flows down from east to west,
    everything sparks our imaginations.
    good to read and think about a river's power.
    bitter sweet ending line.
