The Blue Bird

Prapancha's Creative Wonderland

প্ৰপঞ্চা বৰুৱা

নীলা চৰাই

মৃত উশাহত যেতিয়া
চৌদিশ আন্ধাৰ হৈ পৰে...
ডেউকাৰে ডাৱৰ ফালি
এটি নীলা চৰাই উৰি আহে..
পলাশৰ ঠোঁটত কামুৰি লৈ আহে
এটি সঞ্জীৱনী কণা।।
নিয়ৰ সেমেকা নিৰ্জীৱ
বননিত পৰি সঞ্জীৱনী কণাটি
এটি মুকুতা হয়,
মৃত্যুয়ে সাৰ পাই,
আন্ধাৰবোৰ নিমিষতে নোহোৱা হয়।।


When all fluorescent dreams die in darkness
A blue bird flaps its wings
through the thick cloud to hover around me
In its Palash lips it fetches
a splash of animating vigour
In the dew drenched yet lifeless wood
the elixir drop turns to a pearl
Death is rejuvenated to life’s Fest
Darkness evaporates in an instant

Original poem by Prof Prapancha Boruah in Assamese
