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.
Maybe someday our paths will merge
and we will walk side by side.
Till then let’s keep the light burning
hope in your heart and in mine.
Till then let me hope and relish
whatever God has given me
and keep the lamp of love alight
and wait for you to come home to me.
Maybe time will prove me a fool,
for laying my heart for a wanderer,
or maybe the wander will finally see
the light left at window for him.
Follow the trail of light to hearth
where a heart waits for him
and a new story will begin
from where it was left unwritten.
