Poetry from Mahbub


Pattaya Sea Beach

The sky was cloudy, it became dark all around

It was thundering and we stood on the sand

The boats, the launches, the ships plying on the waters

We look here and there the horizon

Where the sky and water mix together

Waves flow so high and low

Keeping its vows from time immemorial

All the water vehicles dancing with rhythmic serial

There stands a large green hill on the left

Where engraved so nicely ‘Pattaya City’

When night falls upon the land

So beautiful girls starts their performance dancing and singing

Like the cascade of the ocean

I walk on the way and bought a ticket for ‘Alcazar’

The show fueled the heart on the stage performance

The whole world joins together

The culture of thee and the world reflect here

I walk on the way and see the party busy with so merriment

Can touch one’s heart while passing the roads by the ‘Pattaya City’

Santi Chai Prakan Park

To find peace in life

Overloaded with so many cares and anxieties

May come here in touch of breeze of the river Chao Phraya

Couples are sitting hand in hand, the old are drowsing

All come to find the selves as their own

In the wooden or iron made seats

Under the shade of old large trees

The old have mark of life in their face

The life scattered by so many deeds

There is also a fort adjacent to it

The flowing river, the soft breeze

The buildings and bridges look very nice

It’s something different than there in those

The people of different cultures engraved on the wall

Reflects the life of present and past

The waves of the river cools the body

Nodding in dream sitting on the chairs

What is life nothing but taking cares.

Koh Larn Island

How wonderful the land surrounded by the hills and the ocean

I am sitting here under a shady tree

Many have come from many parts of the world

Some are bathing, swimming,

And rejoicing in the blue watery island

Some are wandering, some are gossiping

In the bar or shop

Some are busy to sell and buy

We look at the sky and the sea

We look at the hills and the clouds floating white and black

We look at the far reaching blue sight of the water

We came to the unknown which appears to be so familiar

The soft blue eyes oh my dear

Your eye beam reflects in mine

Feel alone as you not here

But I see you always through the blue and green waters

Flowing us from here to there

Loving us to move on and refreshing all

Here is the world to love more and die in ecstasy 

A treasure of green aspires.

The Land of Smile

Our hostess Resa sitting in the micro-bus

Suddenly got behind smiling over her face spoke out

‘At first when you came, you thought the days would be

so long and hard

How can they be spent?

Now it’s only two days left you will depart

See, one day I’ll also die

So don’t be sad or gloomy for what you have or not

Smile and be happy always’

This flashed out the country ‘Thailand’

The land of smile.

In Your Breast

Mahbub John

Norms and behaviors so soft, not noisy in speaking at all

You held me in your breast and fed me what I wanted to have

So nice you are! So fascinating the world you made!

I never thought to be here

But who can say where the destiny bound for!

I round your city, I find my heart

You keep up with me

I feel like so keen I look for

You are my boss, you are my friend

You focus the light how to regain

All the way I run through can ever be forgotten?

Your warm love will ever be in my heart

As the childhood reminds the days gone by.
