Poetry from Mahbub Alam

Middle aged South Asian man with reading glasses, short dark hair, and an orange and green and white collared shirt. He's standing in front of a lake with bushes and grass in the background.
Mahbub Alam
Life

Life is like the hot season sweating the body 
And burning the green 
Life is like the rainy day’s lilies on the quiet lake
Or on the starry flowers journey the day’s moment
As if the dream the lightening feather
Life is like the birds flapping and chirping in the morning 
Saying ‘Good Bye’ to the darkness of the night
As if the world awakens with its new beauty and color 
Of the red crabs in the sea beach

Life is like the love’s dream
Lost in the other world staring the glimpse 
Life is nothing but a count of sorrows and sufferings
Sewing a lot of inner meaning 
Like the designed bed cover we lie to sleep
Life is nothing but a span of time
Talks to us so many things
Standing before to face the new challenges

Life is running so fast to meet the charm
Life is a drop of water
We seek at the time of thirst
Life finds out the glory with the life we love
Life rounds in always in love
Though life causes sometimes so many deaths in this earth.
