ଟିକି ସ୍ବପ୍ନ ଟିଏ!

ଏକ ଆଲୋକ ର ରଶ୍ମି ପରି
ତୁମେ ଆସିଲ ମୋ ଖାଲି ଅଗଣା କୁ
ଏମିତିତ ମୁଁ ଜଳୁଥିଲି ତୁମ ଅଗ୍ନି ଶିଖା ରେ
ବଂଚିବା ର ବାହାନା ତ ମିଳିଗଲା
ଜୀବନ ବଞ୍ଚିବାର ଉଦ୍ୟେଶ
ଆମର ସାକ୍ଷାତ ଯଦିଓ ଅଲଗା ଦୁନିଆରେ
ଆମର ପ୍ରାଥନା ଆମକୁ ଆଶୀର୍ବାଦ କରୁ
ମୋ ଦିନ ଗୁଡାକ ଅସ୍ତଗାମୀ ହେଇନି
ରାତି ଗୁଡାକ ଆହୁରି ଝଲସି ଯାଉଛି
ଜାଣିନି କେମିତି କାଟିବି ଜୀବନ କୁ
ପାହାନ୍ତା ପହରର ଟିକି ଟିକି କୁଆଁତାର ସବୁ
ଘୁମେଇ ପଡି ସ୍ବପ୍ନ ଦେଖୁଥିଲେ
ଜନ୍ହ କୋଳରେ ମୁଣ୍ଡ ରଖି
ମୋ ଆଖିରେ ଵି ଆଖିଏ ପୁରୁଣା ସ୍ବପ୍ନ
ଅଣ୍ଟା ଭିଡିଛି ଦେଖିବା ପାଇଁ ଟିକି ସ୍ବପ୍ନ ଟିଏ
ପ୍ରତୀକ୍ଷା ସେଇ ଦୂର ପାହାଡ଼ କନ୍ଦରରୁ
ଉଙ୍କି ମାରୁଥିବା ସୁରୁଜର ପ୍ରଥମ କିରଣକୁ.
ଅନ୍ଧାର ହଟିବ , ଆଲୋକିତ ହେବ
ସତେକି ମିଟିବ ଆମ ପ୍ରତୀକ୍ଷାର ଆଶା.

ଡ଼କ୍ଟର ପ୍ରସନ୍ନ କୁମାର ଦଳାଇ
ଗଞ୍ଜାମ.

Dear Dr. Prasanna Kumar Dalai, Sir, Namaste

Congratulations on your beautiful poem, “ଟିକି ସ୍ବପ୍ନ ଟିଏ!” Your words have truly captured the essence of hope and longing in the face of life’s challenges. Your ability to convey profound emotions through vivid imagery is truly commendable. Wishing you continued success in your poetic journey.

In “ଟିକି ସ୍ବପ୍ନ ଟିଏ,” Dr. Prasanna Kumar Dalai eloquently paints a picture of hope emerging from despair. The poem begins with the arrival of a ray of light in the speaker’s empty courtyard, symbolizing a glimmer of hope in an otherwise bleak existence. The imagery of “burning in the flame of your fire” suggests intense emotional turmoil, yet the speaker finds a reason to live through this suffering.

The poem’s central theme revolves around the idea of finding purpose and hope, even when the physical meeting with a loved one is impossible (“ଆମର ସାକ୍ଷାତ ଯଦିଓ ଅଲଗା ଦୁନିଆରେ”). The poet’s use of contrasting images—daylight that hasn’t set and nights that continue to blaze—emphasizes the ongoing struggle between hope and despair.

The speaker finds solace in dreams (“ଘୁମେଇ ପଡି ସ୍ବପ୍ନ ଦେଖୁଥିଲେ”) and looks forward to the first rays of the sun breaking through the distant hills, symbolizing the eventual triumph of light over darkness. The poem concludes with a hopeful note, asserting that darkness will fade, and their waiting will be rewarded with light.

Dr. Dalai’s poem is a powerful testament to resilience and the enduring human spirit, beautifully expressed through evocative language and imagery.
