The strings should be connected again--By Swapan Kumar Rakshit--India

The strings should be connected again

Somewhere the link has been broken.
So the hearty applause from this end
Don’t reach there; or the words spoken
There, are very difficult to comprehend.
But, my tireless heart still wants to throb,
And, my eyes are eager for frequent gaze.
I want to harness energy form another orb
And, I want to envision an unwritten page
I want to hear murmurs and the drum beats,
I want to be acquainted with futurists’ caveats,
And to hear the footsteps on unknown streets,
Or to know the language of the autocrats.
So the strings should be connected again,
With the greatest care and with the fullest amain.

Swapan Kumar Rakshit is an Indian poet. He lives at Aurobindanagar (North), Bankura, India. He wants to be acquainted with the universal creative minds through his poems and wants to come into contact with that creative force.

(Note by Inge Wesdijk—Whispers’ Poetry Editor: amain an olden day (16th century) word--fullest, with full force)
