Mountain Dreams and The Mountains Tell a Story

July 13, 2019 | By

Two poems by Anindita Bose, depicting various emotional nuances of humans with mountains in the backdrop.

the leaves fall from trees

Mountain Dreams

a morning in the hills
dreams come no more
skies connected
wings fly in all directions

breeze, wind, brown leaves
afternoons in a garden
with values of life and care
a white cat and a black dog

chess but no opponent
the self is the master
to grow and give up and to
grow up back again

voices of night await
for silence to take a chance
to lure hearts in exploring

someone is changing
an owl comes to confirm
thunder came three nights
and will come back again

the leaves fall from trees
and a tyre is a swing
flowers bloom silently to
colour the setting of a school

The Mountains Tell a Story

a boy of twenty seven
travelling in search of self
since someone once denied
to recognize that humans
are born free

the boy has lost the sense
of belonging to his native
land once he left his home
for a living

ten years, he worked in a
country that divided itself
into several identities and
yet the boy could not
remember his own

’cause he was called a
stranger, an immigrant in
his own land by people
who were born with same

a nose, two eyes, lips and
ears, at least these could
be seen

they called him the mountain
boy and wished he had left
the plains

the boy made up his mind
and remained where he
wanted to be but in his heart
grew questions on humanity

until a day, when he met a
mirror and images of borders
were blurred…

who owns a land and who can
leave one behind, since this
world belongs to those, who
are given birth

where ever you are and
whoever you are none can
deny you any part of earth,
since for another century
at least Earth would be free
