3 Poems by Pias Majid

Translated by Sonali Chakraborty



Dandelions of moonshine have blown in clutster,

Finding you unfading there, I dive into the golden error.


Flashing incubus of thirty springs,

I have been waiting sitting at the shore,

In this survival of eternal summer,

The fancy of fate only flavoured me with fervent flood.






The Progenitor of Demise


The dune,

And the dormant tune.

The horizon,

And the crazy caper in expansion.


The birth of my corpse existence,

Emerges always in the umbrage,

Of such golden vortex.



The Coffin Street


Permuting his artistry

A mythic potter erects my sepulcher,

Olive green with hues of silvery golden.


Darkness starts flaming over the horizon,

A sylvan fay walks towards the mountain,

Plaits of her hair contain

Unreckoned chase,now in extinction.


I am nothing but a redolent skeleton,

Floating in haem of those embryonic rapine,

Who looks upon and finds

You in fraction,

A night, mysterious yet livelong;

Beaten by the morn.
