Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 253

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee


Book is the primary source,

not the end.

Nature is everlasting-

knowledge has no wall.

If book is ultimate,

brain is useless

as hands lose creativity.

If book is nothing,

drum sounds high

as air fills the gap.

I once made a membership in a library

but never stay there for long,

otherwise I will be a librarian.

I have come out of four walls

to take fresh air to fill my lungs up to the brim.

I can see a rainbow in the sky,

while the librarian looks up through the window

to observe any indication of rain

as he forgets to bring the raincoat.

Some never cross the library gate-

they lose their way but think they are along the right track.

Some sit 24*7 inside the library-

they are buried under burden of books.

I am writing a book.
