Poetry from Mahbubul 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
On the Sights

All must not be outer sights
Some hidden in mind
Lay before us vivid
By closing the eyes
We like to look before
Like to look after
What is driven by us today
Represents tomorrow reflecting another way 
Recollection is pathos or happiness 
It's like a mirror to make the future better
In this glorious world of thought
We always try to overcome the problems
Like swimming under water to cross the border
This way or that ---- 
The stars over head always guarding us
Guarding from back to the front
I think today for you 
You think tomorrow for me
The roses are blooming
The love sights awakens us the sense of growth
The sea-beaches, the hillsides, the tea gardens
Like the different culture of the world
They are talking something hidden 
That we understand or not.
