Mahbub Alam
Knitting the Heart

I knit your heart 
You look as beautiful as my garden flowers
And spread the light in the dark night like the twinkling stars
I hold you on my face 
You kiss me and press on the chest
Both the heart glows and flows like the rising sea in the moon
You are my wandering land
I always keep pace with the thought
The heart I like to live on the flowery bed
I enjoy the scent in the starry world.

On the Way 

I stand before you like a tree
You communicate, laugh and cry
Living in shade
Feel the taste
Talking and whispering always
From the root to the top
From the top to the root
The mutual transportation of water and food
You and me 
The shade speaks out breaking the silence
Moving all to face the challenge.

  1. I love the depth that is expressed here with such minimalism.

  2. I love the lines “You are my wandering land” and “I enjoy the scent in the starry world.” The images they invoke depends on how they are read. The layers change with different emphasis.
