Fish Market : A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

 

I  love to visit fish market .

Walking slowly with a basket

I look at the diverse collection

and enjoy their presentation.

Sometimes I  move around

and listen to  various sound

that a marketplace can offer

with bargain of customer.

I also look at the  fish vendor

to see how happy or sad his face.

This is really a great wonder

how he manages his work with grace.

I am afraid the vendor will lose his job

when the water body will die of pollution.

My journey to fish market will stop

if the anarchy continues without solution.

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

The little boy shivered in biting cold
Still he was serving food for young and old
The boy rushed from table to table
His speed matched only with fable

 

Suddenly a plate fell on the ground
All became alert by the breaking sound
The hotelier rushed to the boy and slapped on the face
He became furious and lost all grace

The guests of the hotel were busy with eating
They looked listless about his beating
A girl stood and asked the owner to  stop
He spared him and returned to his place of the shop

The poor boy started his work again in fear
The savior girl watched  him from near
The boy looked at her with grateful eyes
She saw that he wore a thin cloth to her surprise

She left the hotel and went to her class
Then she went to the market with her purse
She bought a sweater and returned soon
She beckoned the boy and offered the boon

The face of the boy became bright with smile
He bounced like a bird for a while
The girl felt very happy at the divine sight
She thought at least once she honored human right
