Vignettes of a Guitarist

As the guitar strikes

And we enjoy its dulcet tunes,

For all latest news, follow The Daily Star's Google News channel.

My mind wanders someplace else, slowly jamming.


Flowers and a lone tippet,

The vague sky and a dim visage,

Feathery birds caged on the top, softly cooing.


Soft strums fill the air

And a faint noise stirs and hides

The way does a little child, lowly humming.


Things I thought in the dark,

Taught to people in a delirium

Kindle a melancholy tune, gently whirring.


Beseeching a soul to temper,

A heart to render mellow and warm

The guitar plays on in a loop, too stubborn and sweet.



Saeeb Rahman Samin is a student at Notre Dame College, Dhaka.
