A Poem by Suhina Biswasmajumdar

Contemporary World Literature -Suhina Biswasmajumdar- Sindh CourierSuhina Biswasmajumdar is a writer from Kolkata, Bengal. A life-long devotee of Swami Vivekananda, Suhina is against any discrimination. Two significant life-forces propel her – ‘love’ and ‘writing’. Suhina’s book ‘Tumi’ (you) and Songs of Silence (A Journey to Love), are collections of her poetic thoughts.

The Artist and Her Canvas

I told you: “I don’t know the grammar of your art

I just take the brush, touch the colors and

Spread those strokes on the naked papers

Do nothing – just fill the gaps with whatever my mind …”

Eyes smiled:

“Have you ever seen the farmers with his plough ….

When plays with green that turns into golden —

Just like the sun, brings smile in her voice and their lips”

And continued

“I don’t know how to sketch that pleasure

I try … I try to pour his love

In the lonely heart of the maiden canvas

To create that verse on the golden path of the universe”
