Left Unsaid
Amitav Radiance Jul 2015
Try to understand
That’s left unsaid
Pick up subtle clues
Follow your heart
Calling of the soul
Sighs of yearning
After many eons
True heart calling
Just surrender
To be forever

The Night Sky
Amitav Radiance Jul 2015
The night sky is so alluring
There is a subtle attraction
Stars hold our gaze tonight
As lovers hearts come closer
Fine strings from the moon
And the shimmering veil
Decorate the landscape
Waves of silver light
Resonates with hearts upheaval
Night’s bring out the beauty
With closed eyes, we see the universe
Love stops at this confluence
Hearts slowly drowning in love

The Conflict
Amitav Radiance Jul 2015
When the mind is in conflict
Nothing pleases the heart
Every resonance creates disharmony
Echoed from the sharpest edges
The conflict is amplified in the soul
Not aligned with the universe
Conflict of the mind takes over

The Reflection
Amitav Radiance Jul 2015
Reflection in the water
Created silent ripples
Interaction with self
Or maybe the alter ego
Trying to catch a glimpse
Of the world within
If only momentarily
Mirrors gave perfection
To the reflection
Only to stay in the mind
The conflicts between
Inner and outer world
Sometimes shattered
By the truth

Journey of Life
Amitav Radiance Jul 2015
Trying to reach out to life
Feel distanced from me
I have travelled a distance
Went beyond the road I planned
Life will not let me walk back
The erased road remains a memory
Now I have to move ahead
Without looking back
Life has strange ways
Where you travel without itineraries

An Enigma
Amitav Radiance Jul 2015
Obscure sounds
Flowing through
The silence
It’s an Enigma

Voices ethereal
Time seems to
Flow by you
You feel submerged
In the waves
Of each note

Love Knows
Amitav Radiance Jul 2015
Love is contrary to popular beliefs
The heart knows when it descends
to fill every corner with tranquility
Taking you to a higher realm
where you connect with another soul
There is no doubt in the mind
when eyes have met and got fascinated
Resolve of the soul is higher
to delve deeper into each other’s world

Amitav Radiance Jul 2015

New Words
Amitav Radiance Jul 2015
All the heartfelt words
Are struck across with a line
Dividing each word’s meaning
Halved feelings of dilemma
The line created a divide
That was not meant to be
Either, stay in this situation
Or expunge them forever
Express your feelings
With new words

With Nature
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
Nature’s fine composition
Music that is so closer to the heart
Humming along with nonchalance
Swaying branches join the harmony
Winds dance to the timeless rhythm
Silent echoes from the mountains
Calling out to solitary souls
Solitude is an eternal bliss
When one is in tune with nature

Luscious Night
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
Luscious and curvaceous
Sometimes with a pout
Airing some disapproval
With the wave of her hand
She turns back and
Gives a nonchalant glance
Sometimes disapproval
But her side glances
Reveal a different story
The gait of a ballet dancer
There’s rhythm in her feet
Voices her opinions
With her surreal notes
Her piercing gaze
Tears down all defenses
Here, helpless soul
Is mesmerized
It’s a luscious night

Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
How long can you wait
To free your mind
From the despairing thoughts
Creating lacunae
Don’t let the shadows
Take over the true identity
Let it be a reflection
Not an alter ego
Mirrors and mirrors
That mirrors your thoughts
Caught in-between
The mesh of reflections
It’s hard to find your true identity
Mirroring the pale reflections
Left as a silhouette
Standing there unfamiliar and unsure

Through the vortex
It’s a spiraling journey
From the core to the edges
Churning out new realizations
Beyond your control
There may be many paths
But one destination
Journey shall culminate
Before entering another vortex
Spiral down in awareness
Of another avatar
A different journey
And another destination
It’s continuous

Life and Beyond
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
Life without the boundaries
Expands from now and beyond
Concentric circles of consciousness
Waves that binds with cosmic reverberation
Creating intricate patterns of responsiveness
Mind holds the multitude of thoughts
Where they essay a beautiful narrative
You, the protagonist, mirrored in different light

Starry Night
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
Gazing at the star filled sky
Makes the silent night worthwhile
These bright spots of light
Birthed from starburst galaxies
This diamond studded night’s canopy
Brings glimmering hope in my eyes
Chiseled with perfection
Lights are not going to shut off till eternity
Looking at the night sky
Is gazing into eternity in this lifetime

True Meaning
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
There is meaning within a meaning
Heart always wants to decipher
After unwrapping the myriad layers
With dexterous thinking and imagination
Every meaning is unraveled with time
It’s a labyrinth through which life goes
For the true meaning is hidden always
One who wants to seek passionately
Will trespass all the arduous challenges
Lay hands on the hidden key
To open the cherished door of the heart
True meanings are intricate ciphers  
Only the brave heart can decipher them all

Night’s ramblings
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
The night’s ramblings
Whispered incoherently
Hearts synced forever
Can comprehend them
It’s a winding labyrinth
Hand in hand
So as not to lose each other
By the moonlit path
Incoherent whispers
But meaningful conversations
Laying supine under starry sky
It’s a dream together
Preparing to fly to destinations
Night’s ramblings
Have given a new meaning
To the adventure of life

Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
Words once birthed
From the labored thoughts
To express the once unspoken
Adopted by so many
To give a meaning of their own
Words see so many facets
Of our inner feelings
Into the realm of eternity
Before silence takes over
We shall rely on our words
Weighing every word carefully
They become our extension
We shall fall silent one day
But the words shall remain after us
Trying to give a glimpse
Of the life that we had lived once

Strong Winds
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
Strong winds may uproot you
Unsettle your stoic resignation
You will be shaken and stirred
Lot of ponderings and doubts
In the middle of nowhere
When gravity does not give hope
Become a fearless traveler
Encounter the strong winds
No matter where you settle
Continue to spread your roots, deeper
Your soul is still with you
Nothing can stop you from reliving
Every unsettling episode
Will teach you to be more resilient

Morning Beauty
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
The first kiss of the morning light
Cannot tame the blooming bud
Waiting to flower in full glory
Opening up its world to beauty
Waiting for hands that nurtures it
Not a drop of nectar is abandoned
Before it yields to the fleeting world
But the beauty and aroma will linger, forever

With a Kiss
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
A kiss evokes eloquent poetry
Each line recited in harmony
It’s a silent symphony of souls
Feelings sway in an ecstatic stupor  
A new world becomes a reality
Where just two souls find abode
A poetry chronicled by the confluence
It’s a masterpiece

Rains are here
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
Sitting near the window
On a mellow morning
There’s a palpable eagerness
To wash away the summer heat
The nearest tree branches sway
In anticipation to welcome the rain
I can feel leaves talking to each other
Sudden gust of cool air touches me
Making me aware of my presence
May be the rains are on their way
The tree branches do an ecstatic dance
I look up at the accumulating clouds
Suddenly the sky opens up in happiness
Sound of rain is like the sweetest lyrical notes
There’s flowing elegance in the air
Rains wash away the last bit of gloominess
Here my heart wants to get drenched
I finally join the trees and birds
And get the taste of refreshing shower
Rains are here and there is hope writ all over

Elusive Communication
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
One cannot communicate
If the words are incoherent
There’s so much distance
Between the mind and heart
Impossible to traverse
Communication a distant dream
Words create a haze
Unaware of the growing chasm
Only heard are echoes of agony

A Poet
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
A poet is omnipresent
Travelling where none has before
Everyone has a secret destination
Loved more than any
So many roads travelled
Yet the poet’s soul is not weary
So many reminisces from ancient times
Poet’s soul is older than time can perceive
Taking notes from the chronicles of universe
Poet is testimony to many anecdotes
Traveling through the length and breadth
Touching lives of multitudes
Poet shall live within the poetry
Conveying the mystical and universe’s secret
A poet is omnipresent
Poetry shall encompass all of existence

Draped in Love
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
Draped with nothing but eloquence

Lost in the haven, love writes an enchanted tale

Dream sequences
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
Dream sequences
Made up of random patterns
So many faces
The rhythm of many heartbeats
So many minds
So many thoughts- conscious or sub-conscious
What is their origin?
Only source from within us?
Maybe thoughts are planted
While we are asleep
Played to us like a dream film
Some we remember
Others we forget
Yet, they may be residing somewhere
Where do lost dreams go?
Or, maybe it’s not meant for us
Expunged from our subconscious
Our every move has a meaning
We may not know the origins
For all we know
Or actions are mirrored

The blank pages
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
The blank pages
Invite the poetic wanderer
With a wanderlust heart
Visiting undisclosed locations
In search of rare experiences
Roaming the edges of known
Where the real adventure is
Gathering some rare pieces
Strewn here and there
Not oblivious to poetic eyes
Allure of the blank pages
Is difficult to ignore
For all the adventures
Of the wanderlust heart
Waiting to be chronicled
Sore feet and tired soul
Heals when the muse smiles
After all the secret journeys
Poetic heart will return to
The blank pages

Status Quo
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
This is better than that
Abhor change, as always
Why not this?
It has been like this
Change seems a tough choice
Why make choices, yourself?
When choices are ****** on us
Let’s not talk
Lest someone objects
Maintain silence
Easier way to live
Why right the wrongs?
When we can’t spot the differences
Go with the flow
Join the bandwagon
Let’s maintain the status quo
We choose
What others have chosen for us
We do not differ
For we my stand out from the crowd
See, it’s a status quo
You fail to visualize

With amazing grace and flexibility

Smoky Haze
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
I can see a smoky haze
The billowing fire died down
Once clouds of blackness
Obscured the bright sky
One flick of a matchstick
And a single spark
Enough to spread the mayhem
Caught off guard
Every dried leaves and sticks
Came into the lure of mighty fire
Flowing like a raging ocean
Flames gallop like wild horses
Forests are bogged down
To become ashen-faced
Once a glorious site
Now ravaged by mighty flames
Spiraling out of control
Winds give wings to the flames
They travel far and wide
Across the forest floors
Unruly flames engulf everything
Sooner flames will die down
But the smoky haze will obfuscate
The vision to look beyond
It’s a maddening haze  
From the fury of embers

Morning Songs

Sing me a song o' morning birds
Invite your friends to join the chorus
Let the morning begin with your songs
You flew from afar to make this morning beautiful
Your songs will stay in my heart forever
You bring the distant dreams near me
Making my heart hopeful
I shall also give wings to my dreams
Please carry my dreams to distant lands
Paint an artistic pattern across the lovely blue sky
I will wait for your return o’ messenger
For now let me drown in this beautiful ambience
My heart wants to get up and dance
My feet will match the rhythm of your songs

Not weary anymore

Set Sail
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
Ships won’t be anchored forever
Rusted anchor will break free
Its weight will help sink deeper
With a loud clunk, noise will dissipate
The ship will set sail once again
No weight is heavy enough to overcome
Steered away to distant land
Searching for newer shores and destinations
Away from the land of constraint
Ship will sail safely through deeper waters
Navigating through inclement weather
Forces of nature will test its strength
For the ship shall find the happy shores again

Life’s meanings
Written in

Best deciphered
By the soulful one
Decipher love

Seeking Love
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
I took the forlorn path
And came in front of love’s door
So many imposing arches
Crowned the long corridor
My footsteps echoed throughout
I am the only visitor in many years
The evening light sneaked through
Creating a mesh of intricate patterns
Soon the arms of light will shorten
Leaving this place in darkness
It’s time to ignite the love’s flame
This seeker has come a long way
And the place becomes more familiar
As silence and darkness falls
Soon the candles will be lit
Imposing windows with
Colorful stained glasses will shine
Reflecting the few candle lights
This place will rejoice with reflected lights
Now that peace stays here
It’s a haven for a lover who seeks
Love shall be showered with eloquence
Here that the lover will find his love
World’s door may close behind me
But eternal love will be my abode forever

Look no further
For poetry is within you
Let the soul flow freely
Listen to the quiet murmur
Tranquil, flows feelings

For everyday anecdotes
Let the blood flow happily
Take the nature’s course
Every journey a revelation
Look no further

Night and Day
Amitav Radiance Jun 2015
We wait for light to dawn on us
As we plan our dreams at night
Planning our entrance to a new day
Knocking on the door we visualize
Run a path of with so many errands
Tired soul, looking for the right exit
Before we are shut out into the cold
We need to enter through the exit
As darkness descends at the day’s end
Many travelers prefer the starry canopy
The wild wilderness and embrace night
Inclement weather one has to weather
Drenched to the soul and feeling tired
It’s time to go look for the shelter
Darkness brings us closer to the cosmic beauty
As we retire exhausted, we travel unknown places
Universe holds so many secrets
Hidden from the bright daylight and noises
Night cuts out the unnecessary activities
As we delve deeper into our souls
Looking for another path to follow
Waiting for the dawn and many chores
Night’s light shall finally drape our soul
As we retire again for the night

Free from all illusions
Free your soul

Poetry will Flow
Amitav Radiance May 2015
Poet, the soul of poetry
Every stirring within
Comes alive with words
Feelings flows like rapids
Cascading to greater depths
Restlessness of the poet’s heart
Makes an emphatic splash
Over rocky beds of the fall
Time and again they hurt
Yet, feelings won’t stop flowing
Creating more rapids
Sometimes deluging the poet’s soul
Poet, the soul of poetry
Muse will always come to the rescue
Poetry will always flow

The red orb of light
Brilliant crimson shade
Flames of hope kindles
Wakes up sleepy skies
Once lulled by the moon
Now retreat to rest
Dawn calls on everyone
Birds in perfect symmetry
Making beautiful patterns
Winged silhouettes fly
Morning dwellers
Wipes away the dreams
From heavy eyelids
Takes them in handful
To set them free
Morning’s red orb
Pours life with joy

Welcome the Breeze
Amitav Radiance May 2015
I welcome the breeze
From the distant land
Brings fresh happiness
Lifts the veil of doubt
Reveals the inner beauty
Many rich aromas unknown
Intoxicates the senses
Travels through unknown corridors
Not even the corners spared
Soul breezes along with pleasure
Some unknown music notes
Hits the heart with marvelous grace
Intermingling of two waves
Brings harmony and peace
I welcome the breeze
As I surrender to the weightlessness
My soul feels loved and joyous
Tears of joy mingles as sweet droplets
Floating with the sweet breeze
Fresh breeze from afar
To which I surrender at will

Through a Keyhole
Amitav Radiance May 2015
Looking through a keyhole
World becomes smaller
A constricted view of the world
Lost the key somewhere
All the keys are redundant now
Within the four walls
Life revolves around the mundane
Only window to the world
Now hazy with perceptions
Now there is only one way
To look at the world
Holed up within the premises
But only to look though a keyhole
Locked inside aspirations
Never will the key be found

Journey through Life
Amitav Radiance May 2015
There’s nothing to hold on to
Or things which we can take with us
Fleeting moments of the surreal
We magnify the perceptions as we travel
Nothing more than a realistic mirage
Travelling through the tunnel of time
There’s nothing to accumulate
Our souls are free, without possessions
Do not hold it back with shackles
Time will wither away in an illusionary darkness
We travel with an anticipation of being immortal
Truth is we are always free
Often we have to listen to our soul
Leave possessions behind and look ahead
There’s eternity looking at you with eagerness
