Life's But A Walking Shadow (Macbeth)

The shadows bloom.

The lights make them grow.

From one light to another - we wake.

And, new space - the shadows take.

The poetry of life. Night and day -

Passing shadows - all the way.

****************

As sombras florescem.

As luzes fazê-los crescem.

De uma luz para o outro - nós rastro.

E as sombras tomam novo espaço,

A poesia da vida. Noite e dias -

Todo o caminho - sombras passageiras

Mara took a beautiful shot and posted it as a continuation to our posts – Aftab’s and then mine.

In the mean time Aftab asked me to write a poem on it. I did. Original framing of the poem was in Portuguese (I made it while writing a comment on Mara’s work) the parallel one is in English. No Bengali this time. Sorry.

For those who have not seen those three posts yet, here are the chronological links
