Dublinscape By Sourav Bhattacharjee

A city with so much to offer –

And so much to snatch;

The city of all – a city of inimitable

Ways to live life with hectic vengeance.

The city of Dublin enthrals throughout –

When the old medieval alleys welcome

Me through with smells of beer guzzling,

And loud laughter makes the air heavy…

 

The contrast the city nurtures day in – day out

Where poverty goes hand on hand with a smile…

And the enriched stay marred with depreciation –

Of mere satisfaction which they thought

Themselves of capable of buying with

The fake sense of wealth made of papers and metals.

The city offers to all the squares of existences

Collecting bits and pieces from all over the planet…

 

Here in the city I live –

Somewhere close to city’s heart – far away from noise

But still close enough to hear the heartbeats

To feel enough warmth oozing out of

The Dubliners who refuses to give up –

And stand with the spirit of poetry,

Immeasurable fathoms of creation and

With the essential signatures of being alive.

 

A stroll by the sides of the river Liffey

On a solitary afternoon with the glaze of sunset –

Trickling over the waves of the river flowing at ease

Injects a bout of fresh air into a suffering heart.

And walking through the city into the dark nights

When sound, noise and bigotry mix up;

When a poet shares a drink with a homeless…

These showcases the inherent equilibrium within

To kindle the triumph of solidarity over evil

With the core of creation and camaraderie

And make it a place where one is never alone.
