Poem: A Goal and its shadow

By: Pijush Kanti Deb

It is not necessary
on the part of a hunter
and his casting of arrows
to keep company with the guidelines,
sometimes misleading and confusing
to a hunter to reach
his goal and its shadow-
equally useful in blooming a blossom
on the lips of a hunter
who holds good his running
towards his aim
starting his limited stroke engine
fueled by his unlimited wants
attaining the contradictory probabilities
of success or failure
making the earthly eyes blissful
in keeping an eye on the hunter-
having two strings in his bow
and hopeful for a definite success
in hunting
piercing either the heart of the goal or its shadow.
