Adam and Eve
by Dr. Kumarendra Mallick

Always fond of watching

the chirping little birds,

I felt my impressions I must paint

my living room neatly to decorate…

 

Keeping the outline of a distant hill

where the sky and the earth meet,

in the foreground I sketched a tree

on the bank of a flowing river,

for the birds to perch and play together.

 

On every branch – big and small,

I sketched quite a few, some on their wings,

some about to take off, but it seemed to be a crowd –

in the commotion sadly all appeared

to be unknown to each other.

 

The canvas I kept aside,

took another, this time to draw just one

on a slender branch

swinging in the mild wind

 

A lonesome sage-like figure

sans emotions and passion,

it appeared lost in the hustle bustle

of the vast creation…

 

Taking pity on it

I picked up the third canvas,

painted just two birds –

facing each other,

brought them little closer

till their beaks could reach each other…

 

And lo…!

Seemingly I heard a whisper,

after moments of chit chat

one of them, I felt,

flew down and was back with a twig…

 

Did these two wish a nest to weave,

and enact once more the roles of Adam and Eve!
