The Mirror In My Mind

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury

My Shadow fell on the mirror

and the face of denial smiled back to me.

I looked away.

When I turned to the mirror in my mind,

the face and the shadows disappeared.

Denial stood alone and the reflection

mirrored backed my true image.

I closed my eyes.


FABRIC OF OUR TIME

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury


We are nothing but dyeing (dieing) tools.

Leaving behind our imprints on the fabric of Time.

And

This fabric of our time is all,

but an illusion that surround us.

Endlessly wrapping our future to the past.

HEAVEN AND HEART

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury


Outside my window bare branches are reaching out to the sky.

As if linking the Earth to the Heavens.

Today there is snow on every branch.

Reflecting crimson red of the setting sun.

They look like the veins in my Heart.

I felt connected.

THE NATURE IN ME

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury


A cloud of sorrow turned into rain,
and the pain came rolling down my chicks
melting the rock within,
and a smile like the rainbow spread its wing
accross my face.
Over and over again my ignorance kept crushing on the shores of wisdom
Yet the truth like the sun kept shinning on the horizon.
The Night came and the worries crawled back to me like the dark sky.
Moon and the stars couldn't take away my darkness
as I drifted towards the eternity.

eSENSES

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury


Silence is deep,Eternity is wide.
Hope is alive,Love is magic.
Fear is defeat,Ignorance is limitation.
Truth is incomplete,Lie is uncertain.
Hunger is delay,Sadness is out of control.
Happiness is achievment,Death is certain.
Mind is all about stories,Soul is searching.
Religion is make believe,God is nature.
Knowledge is a tool,Power is temporary.
Wisdom is direction.
Myth, fanatism is repetition of a lie.
Humanity is work in progress.

YOU DO

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury


How do you loose something thats not yours.(Life)
How do you grow old with such fresh memories.(Age)
How do you fill ignorance with lies and call it the gospel truth.(Mind)
How do u hold someone in your arms with someone else in your heart.(Love)
How do you hide your tears in the rain.(Sorrow)
How do you ask for more when all you get is less.(Wealth)
How do u describe today when its nothing but yesterdays tomorrow.(Time)
How do you say goodbye when the end is just the begining.(Death)

THE FLOW

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury


A Stream of Desire led me to the River of Passion,
Passion poured into the sea of Love,
Touching the Ocean of Happiness.
And
The Warmth of Joy rushed to the shores,
turning into waves of Eternal Promise.

WHY

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury

Thought we could hold our Love
between us with an Embrace
And
Cleanse our Soul with thousand kisses.
Yet
Responsibility arrived with an opened door to Indifference.
Embrace turn Embarrassing
And
Love kissed goodbye.

Office Blind

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury

Vertical strips of Elongated reality.

Lights in - Suns Out..

Devoured Hours within these--------

3 Walls of Concrete

1 Wall of Parallel Imagery.

Today

They say I have a Tunnel Vision.

Or

Perhaps I am a horse with Shades.

WHY

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury

Thought we could hold our Love
between us with an Embrace
And
Cleanse our Soul with thousand kisses.
Yet
Responsibility arrived with an opened door to Indifference.
Embrace turned Embarrassing
And
Love kissed goodbye.

MOMENT

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury

I looked her at she looked at me
I turned my back and she was gone.
Now
I feel so lonely that I can hear my own heart beat,
And
The Loud whisper of my sweet Love O Discreet.

GRASP

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury

I asked darkness for light and the Sun winked at the Moon.
I bound Time to Eternity and the child in me died young.
I looked hatred in the eye and Love shied away
I held my thoughts in my mind yet stories came out of the blue.
I gave my silence a tongue and it spoke of Nothing___

EMPTY

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury

My Touches couldnt heal your wound.
My Kisses failed to dissolve your pain.
Today..............
Your Tears began to betray your heart,
As your blank stares Touched the Void.........
I let go...................

A NEW DAWN

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury

My Mind
My Imagination
My first Thought of a perfect World
Whispers to me from Million directions
My Ideas without limitations
My Visions without Fear
And a possibility of a New Dawn,
Yet
My New Dawn breaks with another Silence
Like the cry of a New born
And
My last Thoughts becomes my First.

LAZY EYES

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury

My eyes are falling a sleep
And
My Mind is falling apart.
My Dreams are waiting to happen.
Yet
My Soul is all scattered.

LOOK THE OTHERWAY

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury

On my way to work near the Wendys

a small girl stopped me for a quarter,

I Ignored her.

On my way home she stood in front of me at the Wendys

starring at the menu with her dark hungry look,

few coins in her sweaty little palm.

Trying to calculate the cost of hunger.

There were nothing for her in that Menu.

Her little head stooped low

like a dead bird.

Clinching her little palm she bowed out

dragging her hunger along.

I have never seen Hunger at such close proximity.

I ran out to catch her.

But Alas

The darkness of the street swallowed her.

Leaving behind a small hollowed emptiness within me_

And

For the first time I felt.................Ignorance is No Bliss_

Take a Bow

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury

A misty bunch of sweet air gushed towards me through the rains
It swept my mind away to a strange place.

Here the skylarks circled above me as if
trying to catch the Sun in its Wings.

Dark clouds jostled around like the
Elephants in a bathing ritual.

Branches swayed like women tossing
their dark hair in grief of the lost ones.

Ponds were full of shiny circles
and Raindrops like the precious silver bullets
caught each bulls eye precisely.

Everything ended with a cacophony
of Nature s swan song in a voice of million Frogs
silencing even the roaring Thunder.

Alimony

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury

Give me a Flower and I will give you a tear.

Show me Love and I will be you.

Tell me a lie and I will give you a story_

Give me the Truth and my Ignorance is yours.

Inspire me and you have my words_____.

Silence me and my Pain is yours to keep.

Grounded

by

Mr Joy Chowdhury

Grounded
Hug that tree and be still.

Catch that Sun with your Eyes.

Cry but donít pray.

As today your mind is just an Essence

and

That body of yours is now one with Nature

Swaying away.
