HUMBLED AND HONOURED.
Epistolary Poem #185 by Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai of India
and Kristy Raines of The United states of America
SOMEONE SHOULD TELL ME !
In that glittering touch of my dreams
Something new rises in my heart
Perhaps a smiling bud that giggles
In the deep and dark forest of my mind .
My new poetry sings and vanishes
Behind innumerable hopeless hopes
Someone should tell me in a dialect
My river of love flows in a new rhythm
And the sea of joy maddened in waves
I find not what new hue of her form
Can draw my image eternally lavish ;
Why is she acting all secretive today ?

She has waited for this moment and now speaks…
I WILL NOW TELL YOU!
I always want to be the blooming flower of
the glittering touch within your dreams
Like an illuminating fairy that enters the forest of your thoughts
Do not be bothered by the poems that now vanish
because beautiful thoughts of hope have now replaced
your hopeless hopes of sadness which used to plague you
Your river of love now flows in rhythm with mine
as joyous waves become like a fierce storm of passion between us
The hue of my form is like the blood that pumps through my veins
which I now use to write our eternal story of love.
The secretive story of two lovers forever tied together by fate.

Congratulations, Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai and Kristy Raines, on your collaborative poems! Your creations, “Someone Should Tell Me!” and “I Will Now Tell You!”, beautifully intertwine to create a mesmerizing narrative of love, hope, and longing. Let’s delve into a detailed analysis of these profound verses.
**”Someone Should Tell Me!” by Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai:**
In this poem, Dr. Dalai explores the enigmatic nature of love and the yearning for understanding and connection. The imagery of a “glittering touch” within dreams symbolizes the shimmering allure of love, while the “deep and dark forest” of the mind suggests the complexities and mysteries inherent in human emotions.
The repetition of “Someone should tell me” conveys a sense of longing and uncertainty, echoing the poet’s desire for clarity amidst the chaos of conflicting emotions. The juxtaposition of “hopeless hopes” underscores the paradoxical nature of longing for something unattainable yet deeply desired.
The imagery of the “river of love” flowing in a “new rhythm” and the “sea of joy maddened in waves” evoke a sense of fluidity and dynamism, suggesting the transformative power of love to imbue life with renewed vitality and passion.
The poem concludes with a poignant question, “Why is she acting all secretive today?” This enigmatic query leaves the reader pondering the mysteries of love and the complexities of human relationships, inviting interpretation and introspection.
**”I Will Now Tell You!” by Kristy Raines:**
In response to Dr. Dalai’s introspective musings, Kristy Raines offers a luminous affirmation of love’s enduring power to illuminate and inspire. The imagery of being “the blooming flower” within the beloved’s dreams conveys a sense of beauty, vitality, and enchantment.
The metaphor of an “illuminating fairy” entering the “forest of thoughts” evokes a sense of magic and wonder, suggesting the transformative effect of love on the psyche. The reassurance that “beautiful thoughts of hope” have replaced “hopeless hopes” speaks to love’s capacity to banish despair and imbue life with renewed optimism and purpose.
The synchronization of the “river of love” and the merging of joyous waves symbolize the harmonious union of two souls, united in a shared journey of passion and connection. The metaphor of the beloved’s form as the lifeblood coursing through veins underscores the intimate bond between lovers, intertwining their destinies inextricably together.
The poem culminates in a declaration of eternal love, encapsulated in the imagery of writing “our eternal story of love.” This proclamation of devotion and commitment encapsulates the essence of the human experience, affirming love’s capacity to transcend time and space.
Together, these two poems form a compelling dialogue between two souls, each offering their unique perspective on the enigmatic nature of love. Dr. Dalai’s introspective musings invite introspection and contemplation, while Kristy Raines’ luminous response affirms the transformative power of love to imbue life with meaning, purpose, and joy.
The themes of longing, uncertainty, and connection resonate throughout both poems, underscoring the universal nature of human experience. Through vivid imagery, metaphor, and lyrical language, the poets evoke a rich tapestry of emotions, inviting readers to explore the depths of their own hearts and minds.
In conclusion, “Someone Should Tell Me!” and “I Will Now Tell You!” stand as poignant testaments to the enduring power of love to inspire, uplift, and transform. Congratulations once again to Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai and Kristy Raines for their profound and evocative contributions to the world of poetry.
