POETRY / Placing Places

Someday, I will write about those places, the cities, monuments, and faces.

POETRY / Love won’t you love me

Break me into numbers and spirals, and blood and flesh make me all that I don't wish to be.

Defining Haiku poetry with poet Quamrul Hassan

Haiku is a poem in three lines that captures the image of a single moment in the reader’s mind.

POETRY / Are you okay/do you want to talk about it

You’re sitting on the couch/ And you’re tapping your feet at 135 miles per hour/ You’re waiting for something to happen

POETRY / On a Thursday on Kazi Nazrul Avenue

On a Thursday, I went back home, and I took a walk./ On the sidewalk, I saw a splash of maroon on a grey block.

Wondrous Woes

The only thing that disregards - Is that you won’t be there to

POETRY / Maa

Delicate like butterfly wings, And yet as strong as boulders Her mind is a divine place, Eternal peace on her shoulders.
