Dreams Of A Broken Leaf

Tonight shapeless thoughts, high winds
Dreams have fallen asleep

A broken leaf, a fluttering angel
On the naked hand
Invisible wings of desire

The silence of soft lips
Moon sleeping alone
Broken leaf laughs

Wounded night
Left a love note in the sky...
(C)Asoke Kumar Mitra


Memories spread quietly on the boulevard.
Untamed heart shaped clouds
Our memories
Buried within autumn flowers

Stitched moonlight on the stone
We climb through
Heart-shaped leaves
Secret desire .love is like the wind,

Stain of memories
Reckless, deserted
Invisible magic touch
Wind, a silent stalker...

We return to our silence eternal
(C) Asoke Kumar Mitra


Sea wind sings
Endless passion,
I touch your finger
Have taken in my hand

Fragrance of musk
The smell of salty sands
Smell of dust
Fugitive love...

We lost our way
Sea wind echoing in the empty heart
(C) Asoke Kumar Mitra
