LAWN PENNYPORT

Original in Assamese: Padmashree Mahim Bora
Translation: Bibekananda Choudhury


My journey comes to an end
North Pole South Pole and
The Mediterranean Pacific
Haughty conqueror of
Peaks of
The Vindhyas
The Himalayas
How they have fagged under the feet

I could not find a place to repose for a while
Everywhere it is packed with
Iron-steel-stone and concrete
Even
If somewhere
At the sides of
The used plates
A little trace of love remains
It has also become
Radioactive

Packing up my baggage of journey
I come near you
With a timid face
And
A gloomy lonely heart
You are the lonesome resident
At the precinct of my house
Lawn Pennywort
