Journey : Dr Syed Md Zainul Abedin

Life moves with events of joy and pain
None can predict a time of constant pleasure
This may be compared with sunshine and rain
All such events together make our treasure

Some time ago went to a beautiful countryside
Enjoyed the flavor of paradise with dear one
Then started for home taking a rickshaw ride
Suddenly met an accident shattering my plan

My wrist was broken causing great problem
My fellow was terrified and started to scream
The brain could not find anyone to blame
A great flaw invaded into a pleasant dream

There was no scope to stop and lament
Something had to be done as quickly as possible
Rushed to a hospital for emergency treatment
Doctors declared the case was quite horrible

They stretched my hand to fix the bone
Great pain filled my eyes with tears
Doctors consoled me with friendly tone
And put white bandage and other gears

A captive life began with my tied hand
The power of writing was lost suddenly
Memories hovered around like flying sand
My mother’s face appeared frequently

It was a strange coincidence that fractures
Happened to me and my beloved mother
I could realize after many many years
How broken bones compelled her to suffer

But,her case was worse than my misfortune
She had to manage the whole family
She was compelled to work completely alone
Though it might be a cruel anomaly

I could rediscover my mother in my mind
Lack of her photograph gave me freedom
Despite our poverty she was very kind
Her thoughts and actions were uniform

Knowing about my passion in writing poem
She asked me to write on lovely sunbird
I selected many words and played with them
But failed to solve the challenge, it was so hard

The mishap took me to many hospitals
For my treatment and medical test
All those journeys were like flower petals
That enriched my experience offering the best

I met many patients with serious conditions
But they were quite patient and exchanged smile
I could learn from them how to control emotions
Overcome stress and adopt proper lifestyle

My parents left the world ending mission
We shall have to follow them eventually
Let’s evaluate our past to define vision
And embark upon another life prudentially

Yes : A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

Youth sings with passion
 
Judges smile and pronounce ‘yes’
 
Tears of joy cool hearts

Artist: A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

Art lives in the hearts of human
Starting at birth it ends as the setting sun
The first cry of a child is a great art
It stirs the mother and cools her heart
People enjoy smile and sounds of growing child
They rejoice any action as artistic kind

Once I met a  boy seven years old
He was like a flower with flair of gold
I was a guest in their lovely home
He was shy to enter my room
I called him to make him easy
Soon he became my friend and busy

He was curious about me and my passion
He surprised me with question after question
I wondered how to manage a genius like him
He dwelt on wonderful artistic theme
He brought his scrapbook to show his treasure
His joy for sharing was my pleasure

My sojourn was coming to an end
This news saddened my little friend
He looked pale and approached slowly
His eyes were in tears mixed with glee
He extended his hands to offer a gift
I was surprised to see the sudden shift

He gave me an art of a  lovely place
It charmed my heart with its divine grace
He painted a village with a flowing river
People enjoyed the blessing of the Great Giver
I stood speechless in front of the artist boy
Then silently left his home with immense joy

Cicada: A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

Intelligent Little Train Passenger – By Syed Zainul Abedin

The little girl came with her parents in the large compartment of the train which stopped at the Jessore station.She was wearing a red sweater.She looked very happy in the biting chilly weather.Perhaps the train journey was a great pleasure for her.

The little girl sat for a while in the chair.But soon she started to move from place to place as the train started to move towards Dhaka.At first she came to her father who sat close to the window.Then she looked to the outside and showed the crops,people and domestic animals to her father.She became very excited when she saw the fields of mustard.She expressed her joy like a dancing butterfly.She had special love for the yellow flowers of the mustard field.At one time I joined her passion and showed her the fields of yellow mustard from the moving train.She soon befriended with me.

The little girl then walked to the other side of the compartment.She was soon joined by a number of children around her age.They gathered around us and started to see the moving sceneries from the window of the train.She asked her mother to give her toys and she organized the other children to play in joy.

At one point,a book seller came in front of the playing children.The agile girl insisted to have a story book.Her father purchased one story book.But she could not read the book.But,this did not stop her to enjoy the trip.She requested me to read the story to the children.I became very pleased to see the intelligence of the little girl.I was spell bound and started to read aloud the story based upon the folk literature.The story was about a daughter-in-law who was kidnapped by a witch and later rescued by her husband through the assistance of learned witch manager.There were many illustrations in the book.The girl and the children enjoyed the story and asked me read other stories from the book.

The girl switched soon to other activity.She asked the other children to go back to their parents and wanted to walk with her father.Her father took her to another compartment .They came back after half an hour.She took some pickles and orange in her packet.She sat again on her chair by my side.Now she was more happy to get her favorite food.She asked me take some fruit.I became very happy to see her courtesy.

After about twelve hours the train reached Dhaka.I was traveling alone.The intelligent little girl was a great companion and fellow passenger.I still remember her cute face and lovely activities.She left the compartment with her parents.I bid her farewell and wished to see her again.
