Intriguing Odyssey in the Woods

I am trodden through the woods
Bewildered by the beauty nature endowed
Equally, it triggered me to brood
But mellowed by soothing scenario nature offers with grandeur
Dark, deep wood is a sheer fancy
Induced me to explore its stunning floor with expediency!

Suddenly I noticed a bifurcation of my trodden path
I am in dilemma which path I will choose to satiate my soul’s search
There is a clear choice being offered by nature in abrupt noise
I opted one and explored with a spirit to rejoice
Enjoying the beauty nature offers with serenity
Only to soothe my soul with sheer ecstasy!

When I realized my destination to a certain place
Where people are dwelling with utter grace
I cannot rule out I am a social being too
I crave the company of my species with a warm hue
The people I confronted asked me where I intend to go
I just retaliate, I love their warm company and flow
They welcomed me and asked with amazement
When they come to know my traveled path and nature of amusement!

They inquired me with utter surprise
Why didn’t I choose the other path in what surmise?
I myself felt bemused
As I could not fathom my own apprehension, option, and recluse
I failed to envisage
There could be a life-endangering episode to emerge with a vengeance
I exactly cannot fathom
My instinct do possess a rhythm at random
Navigating me to reach to my safe haven on nature’s floor
I truly do not know any such comprehending roar
How my instinct would marvel to ensure my entity in nature’s floor!

Being a minute creature in this vast universe
How could I observe the plasma state and its stature in terse?
Which only absorb cold and release hot waves
To ensure life on Earth with myriad form and grace!

How could I truly envisage?
I am presently walking over a volcano
Which can erupt at any time, a living inferno
By mere religious discrimination
My dear country could be torn with vile propagation
What a dirty presage!

Ultimately it is the human life which will be only sacrificed
But I wonder in what aims and in what surmise?
My head is spinning
Not in half-integer, but in full swing
The motion and its inherent rotation
I myself cannot restrain its impact on me in apprehension
Though I am always in favor of mankind
Which only can save humanity with a purpose to bind.

Really I started to believe
My inherent capacity is only having the capacity to bring relieve
I do not know what matter plays the key role
To its best to make utterances for humanity with a desperate protocol!

I only wonder how I am arrested with an intriguing phenomena
Where my brain plays the striking role to dispel all anathema
Taking the apt judgement finally
The road I eventually opt to ensure my safety
Revealing the enigma being designed by the human brain
Where I wonder external conditions play any pivotal role to claim!

Debasish Majumder
I Debasish Majumder, hailing from Kolkata, State: West Bengal, Country: India, born in a middle-class family in the year 1965 and brought up in an environment extremely favorable for me to garner knowledge from people from various walks of life. Their lives and livelihood are of immense gravity to me as I considered myself as a fortunate one to be facilitated to interact with those who possessed multi-faceted experience and thrived vigorously in their respective fields. Since my schooling as well the path of my studies till I completed my graduation in humanities and thereafter working in various organizations has enabled me to get hands-on experience about the twist and turns of life where I observed the plight of myriad who are economically vulnerable and how they combat the life and even capable to enjoy the every drop of it without complaining about their state. Since my childhood, my passion for the English language and English literature enabled me to explore the world in and around me out of fabulous authors and their valuable renditions which even unveiled front of me the true picture of nature and how it is now confronting peril out of greedy few sharks in the veil of few humans obliterating the very essence of humane! Their works encouraged me to pen down articles, short stories, and poems with my little ability and I have already had a number of paperback editions of my compilation of short stories and poems which are now available on Amazon and other global sites. My alacrity for learning regarding nature as well the society along with the people who are considered as the most precious imperative for us to be enriched. I am blessed by innumerable notable thinkers and philosophers whose works appealed to me enormously, and even helped me to shape up myself by virtue of their expressions. I am having little capacity to translate the reflections of the present society, precisely for the acumen of a myriad of learned persons who have helped me to widen my vista with their wisdom and wide array of knowledge. My sincere effort was navigated by those enlightened persons and I tried with my best of ability to reflect on the scenario I have observed in the journey of my life.
