The Reciter : A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

The lady was a little shy
When I requested her to recite
But her heart wanted to try
The poem that hovered day and night

She started with low voice
Her face started to change
Signs of sorrow and rejoice
Were shown to interchange

Now,she was another person
Her voice rendered artistic narration
She performed a special session
She was transformed to an incarnation

Recitation was her passion
She recited poems for years
Once a poem created impression
She recited it with tears

A poem is the product of poet’s passion
The reciter presents it to the people
Poet and reciter belongs to the same mission
The message of the poem spreads like ripple

I admire the partnership of poets and reciters for creativity
Both of them have great devotion
Together they work for the betterment of humanity
The world should acknowledge their contribution

(Inspired by the extraordinary performance of a female reciter )

Shaheed Minar : A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

Shaheed Minar has become alive
Thousands proceed to place flowers
Love and respect thrive
For the valiant language martyrs
Leaders and ordinary people
Have joined the stream together
Sad song spreads as ripple
Solemn processions move with prayer

The killers shot bullets to stop voice
They could not think its reaction
The young activists had no choice
They fought bravely to honor passion

Speaking in mother language is a human right
The brave Bengali boys began the fight

The Singer : A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

The singer burst into tears
His voice choked by sad memories and fears
The audience got stunned to see this state
They knew nothing about the fact or fate

The singer sobbed and sobbed for some time
The anchor tried hard to restrain as a pantomime
He began to express the painful story at length
He looked confident and having enough  strength

He told,my heart has been filled with grief
Please listen to the event in brief
Then he told how his father was murdered in his presence
He presented a clear account in full sense

He  remembered how elegantly his father bade him to run away
To save his own life rather than to stay
He confessed that he was very selfish
He left his beloved father dying in anguish

His lament touched the hearts of all in the audience
They all stood and showed deep sense of grievance

 

 

 

(The singer stopped singing at the memories of the gruesome murder of his father)
