Dear Angela Poem By Jamuna R.C
That is the same
After all you
Romantic memories have been given
In the sky
You are me
Yes with me
The two nonsense memories
One wound out
The amount is left
Getting on the banks of the ninja
Made as a maker of Koshi
With your kind of stars
These missed missiles
Dear Angela 1

Annapurna appeared on the doorsteps.

A Thwarted Paradise
“The Great American Dream” still counts for some, though the dystopian realities of the post-Vietnam War have rendered the notion meaningless. To migrants moving west from the Third World and Asian countries, America continues to be a much-coveted paradise, though all that happens there is quite predictable and appalling. For a few bucks, all value systems and dignities are dumped into the..
Krishna Prasai: Pioneering Zen Movement in Nepal
Zen pertains to meditative poetry inspired by Zen Buddhism popular initially in Japan and later in Korea. As a literary genre, Zen could have developed anywhere, but Buddhism, the mother of Zen poetry sprouted and blossomed in Nepal, and obviously, the roots of Zen lie here.

Beauty Is Seasonal
Sitting near fireside,

Love is in choice,
Castle in air,Fallen in autumn
Living in woods, is warm at once.

Surrounding by time, will nostalgics at once.
Achievement in hunger, Unsuccessful in life,
Final destination of men.

A bright abyss
I, in wholeness- was lost in you
A delighted entirety within you
And I in ampleness was fizzled in you
I, losing myself,
Initiated rather that was only us.
As I devoted that me within myself,
To the shrine that were we within us
You kept that you within yourself
Only to yourself.
In that night of thunderstorm
You took away that you..
A Teashop Boy – Bhisma Upreti
A ten-year boy
Works in a teashop by the side of a lane
That doesn’t receive adequate light;
He brings tea to the table
And takes away the empty glasses.
He entertains the customers, and is bonhomous,
He smiles to them as similar to the taste of the tea
And in return receives tips from the generous ones.
He has some money received as tips
He can secure two meals a day
He has a way..
