Can We Meet Again?

Dr. Goutam Ghosal (Indian Poet)
D. Litt. Former Professor of English
Visva-Bharati, Santiniketan, India

The fear of all in the world
who live apart between
the vast waters and lands,
the old yes, but the young
not too less, pining in pain,
why didn't I train my hands?
an old fisherman
alone in despair
thought aloud in his need
why didn't you prepare?
for the last and the end?
remnants of Charnok
alongside the crematory
ripples of a wide river
splashing against the roots
of a peepul leaning happily
on the sacred waters
the stars coming up
the stars going back
were you sleeping dear ?
why didn't you prepare?
