Alien, invader
------------------------
The green shadow sits on my terrace of slanting night,
a night, which has escaped the tortuous alleys of unalleviating city.

The shadowy invader, the alien, the lonesome foreign body
watches the clusters of bright sparkles and trails,
in oiled rhythm, of mechanical creatures.
It comes to its mind
whether
human are like their machines too.  

A soft wind rises from Ganges;
a blind bat becomes alert of the alien presence;
the fire on the dumping ground hisses.

It is different landscape.
Theirs is more barren.
Still, the alien likes its planet
and to the creature we are also aliens.

The green shadow sits on my terrace, every slanting night,
seeing us with a soft distance, seeking dispassionate resemblance,
not quite understanding, through the glass of a reverse telescope.

Yo Poddarku,

The Martians are coming!   The Martians are coming!  

They’ll be here in August!

Cute poem, I like it.

i enjoyed reading this, as it is well written, and discusses a topic that is not commonly found in poetry.

And that should be a good reason to start a friendship!

I am not surprised that he choose your terrace to use as an observatory!

A Poet can be as precious as a scientist!

Great job!

Love,

Poddar - If you're an alien and you want to unravel the mysteries of science, then observe a scientist. But if you're an alien and you want to unravel the mysteries of the human heart, then observe a poet. Well done Poddar. Namyh
