Poem: The Plates of Lotus Leaves


The Plates of Lotus Leaves

by Shahinur Islam

A couple of plates of lotus leaves are gazing

as if they were sparks of sunlight full of fire

and the white cloud lies in wait all alone

fixing its bright look on the plates

floating alone in a pond at noon

and stretching their body on deep blue water

by borrowing the cunningness of bright sunlight

some fading light at one side hides the rest of the lotus plates

then whose infatuation with delicacies calls for such an invitation?

The clouds seem to be different assassins nowadays

or play too much the game of hide and seek

or else for whom this decking shines

why is he still away, beyond the scene?
