Volume Three, Issue 4


Shakhawat Tipu

From the symbol
looking at the face
there is a point

To escape
gray lightning shines
in the sky

If the rose spines
understand the beauty of flowers
how much pain her

Spring goes on
ieave the green pain
in warm love

Kisses are
turn on the reins
wave spreads
