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


She watched her
Just like a hawk
Then she said
“We must talk!”

“I know you wear a mask,
Yes I know you are fake,
All that love, kindness,
God’s love and sweetness…”

“It’s just a mask you wear
Within you are like me
Just another vulture
Thriving on dead bodies.”

The little nightingale
Thought she will argue
Will give her alibi
But finally she decided to fly.

Fly away from her malevolent eyes
Her cruel talons
Her spiteful soul
Into the deep blue sky.
