A Blank Page (a poem)
« on: October 23, 2010, 12:43:54 AM »
A blank page


What are you expected for
And what do you get
History of war, or a letter of love
Are you satisfied my blank sheet

What colours you do favour
What matters you do fond
A doctor can express the treatment of a patient
A grocer can keep his account
A sentence of death can be written

You can carry the news from unseen
You can bear the loving poem of a poet
You can be a certificate of one’s existence


A deed of peace may be arranged in you
Childish lines after lines in you may convey nothing
By having all the possibilities may be you remained blank
What do you desire, what do you ... prayer?

It is really a very good feeling for a teacher to see their students rise with potentials. I am lucky to see the expression of creativity of Kumrul.

Dear Suraiya and Shamsi Madam,

Thanks for your reading and expressing opinion here. Please do criticize of my writings. I think your criticisms will help me to develop in a certain magnitude. It is always true that your appraisals inspire me.   

I really miss your classes as well as DIU. But I am happy because I know my teachers love me.

It will be helpful for the students if the summary of the poem is given on line.

Dear Rasel,

Perhaps you are asking for summary to motivate students about poetry.But I personally think that having the summary before the actual venture of a poem distorts the poem's charm.So,it is better to go through the poem first,where the readers can also have the freedom of their own.

Dear Rasel Sir,

Summary can help to understand a meaning of a poem, where as a poem can have multiple meanings. I think you will agree with me that most of the poems of last 2 and half century of any language have various sort of understanding. Therefore to summarize a poem is to minimize a poem. However, I appreciate your opinion; even you can provide a brief of your understanding. 


Dear Shamsi Madam,

Thank you for your presence here. I really agree with you.

Dear Kamrul,

Yes for yr insistence, i would like to be a bit critical.

The very first stanza...ends with a question but missing a punctuation(?)

The whole Second stanza is without any punctuation and i think it matters more in poetry!

And the last line, is it correct" what do you prayer?"?

There are many qualities of a good poem here, i think if you brush it up more it will come up  as a better one.  And  you also have to remember arrangement of words that really make a poem poetic and differentiate from prose.

Nice effort, lovely theme, good analogy and images....craft it more!! :)

I have got yr prose item cant manage time to read and comment.

Take Care.
