of dreams and reality

Sharmishtha Basu is an unemployed artist, writer who is out to test her works, eager to meet publicists, literary agents, publishers and gallant, generous readers, to see if they can help her to build an “unorthodox” career, a path followed by many before, some has been blessed with success, most have not, let us see what you make of her attempts! A failure or success- it all depends on you. These are pieces from her book, the book is available on createspace and amazon- It is a collection of poems and black and white illustrations to go with them. Some are photographs, others paintings, cyber sketches mainly.

Of dreams and reality


Soft breeze blowing teasingly
Kissing her soft face brazenly
He was lying on her lap
Gazing into those dark eyes.

Gently he clutched a lock of her hair
His fingers playing with it
He softly asked her why does she loves
A person as ugly as a demon so much!

She softly lowered her beautiful face
Upon his face glowing with love
Her voice was soft as summer wren
Tenderly she said for he deserves!

They have been shadow and body
Since their very childhood
He has been her first friend
He easily became her first love.

She added, love looks for myriad things
When heart and souls are not bonded;
But when two hearts and souls are bonded
They don’t care for anything else, ever.

  1. absolutely different, that is why I encourage lovers to clearly express their love and be refused, not to self torment assuming that s/he might not be loved, cant be loved! Sometimes love breaks all barriers, like Desdemona’s love for Othello (cant say the perfect example of mutual love but her love was purest).
