One Poem by Sushant Thapa


Carrying a Novel

My friend carries a Novel

When he visits a market.

"It is hilarious," said someone.

"It is creative," another replied.

My friend says he needs stories.

I say stories are around us.

The market filled with air of spices

Becomes an imagery to

Include the taste of opinion.

It sets its sun

In the vast area

Where social bells ring

For every start and ends

With some watery impression

For a parched throat.

The Novel to be written

Will have its own spices

When the tasteless day yawns

And sleeps.

The Novel will be

Voraciously carried by many

When they read its taste.
