Crystal clear sky
M. Mizanur Rahman:
Innumerable planets and stars
move about the planetary axis and play on an unending sky
that can hardly be discerned by one's smallest eye
and how their twinkling lights beacon sweet love for us!
Do we understand anything of that light
how desires play abreast each of them
awake all over the night?
Do we know how pleasantly they hide all the day
keeping the sky crystal clear
within their celestial light?
What we know only that the stars are lighting
the universe on eternal space on the blue sky
for unknown time on the twilight race or on- moon-lit night
when our dreams wing away on our divine breaths.
Everyday the sun rises but why doesn't it throw
its liberal light on our dark hearts?
Why doesn't that wipe out the darkness of our mind?
Doesn't it go into the innumerable dark hearts
of human beings?
Man, you light, the human heart that's the warm light
of the sun, cold light of the moon
in human heart.
Let's play the joyful game together in this world of light.
Throw light on everyone's face
that makes all sufferings go.
Give joy, light upon the heart and
throw more light to remove sufferings.
Do not hurt anybody, remove the thorn
of pain from this heart and love all.
(Dedicated to poet Ashraf Siddique on his 85th birth anniversary)
