the negatives

a predator
lurks near him
his shadow

*

for ever
the way is lost
towards the star
shining bright
in deathly gloom

*

pages
of memories
fade like autumn posy
the green turns auburn in meadows
too soon

vignettes

[ Tanka ]

I.

arid river bed
in v-shaped valley
awaits monsoon
for the wind to rattle
her name

II.

meet you again
near the lantern shrub

she told the sun
he searches for a poem
every morning

III.

akin to
an oyster's pearl
fondled by waves
his chiseled verses
remain password protected

options

[Tanka]

to chose between
a daffodil and a daisy--
the obsessed Narcissus
or the ‘eye of a day’

walk
the lonely path

sighs an autumn
the poet finds
a new door, every hour

(c)Arunansu Banerjee

frustration [ Senryu ]

try bad manners
urges the wine
to a poet

untamed lion
growls at the mirror
receives a sneer

(c)Arunansu Banerjee
