Short Poems by Shamsi

A Storied Evening
By Shamsi Ara Huda

Lamp shades placed in corners of a newly bought flat,

Green pot plants in the finest porcelain,

Soothing instrumental music infused with imported incense,

Flowery candles floating in wood inlaid bowls,

Sky-blue curtains swaying in the wind,

Cozy cushions waiting here and there,

Fusion food ready on an elegant embroidered runner,

A storied evening ahead.

Short Poems by Shamsi Ara Huda (I)

1.
kitchen
Eid-ul-Fitr
Redolent with the aroma of semai, payesh and jarda

2.
Groom’s people are coming
For asking the eldest daughter’s hand
Mother commands the younger and the more beautiful ones to be invisible

3.
Home sweet home
Will never be alike
Siblings scattered to fulfill the needs of life

4.
Horns of cars
Outsmarting birds’ chirping
Dhaka 7 a.m.

5.
Signal red for an hour
People choked in bus
VIP going

6.
People in different attires
Moving here and there
Each with a different story


7.
Drops of diamonds
From the sky
Relishing body and mind

Moments Confused
Shamsi Ara Huda

Children of the nearest school are shouting,

Cars on the opposite street are peeping,

The fan above my bed is rolling,

Pages of the half-read book are flapping,

The heart beneath my chest is beating

Louder than ever before…

My head is spinning.

I am having a feeling of unbearable suffocation

Surrounded with infinite

‘If’s, ‘but’s and ‘moreover’s.
