Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 68

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

A FLASH OF LIGHT

Who can gratify me?

Profession, hobby, books, family, allies...

In vain, I seek far and wide.

I sat down forever with folded knees.

My body, senses, mind and heart

received a pulse of the eternal.

A timeless voice of the Great Soul

can never be futile or die at all.

None has ever created on this little stream

such an arousing and influential wave

as an eternal barrister brought into existence

a flash of light inside this dark grave.

The earth is bound to follow

in midst of all darkness

for utter survival

the ideology of truth and non-violence.
