Reunion

By Sambhu Nath Banerjee

Reunion

They are overjoyed!
For them, it’s once in a lifetime affair.

They spend sleepless night to make the event grand, garlanding the wall, 
and putting decorative painting on the floor.
Dressed in stylish attire, they are ready to welcome the seniors 
one by one with roses, most of whom they have never met before.

The aged and the superiors are swept with great delight
assembling after a long gap, 
and savouring memories is refreshing quite, 
as they are beginning to unwrap.

Watching the younger people reminds me
those golden days.
Myself being youthful and courageous
so much that I could fan the fire to a blaze!

So much love, so many dreams were
hidden within,
that the winter was as romantic as spring 
when I sat on the garden to play the violin.

This holy place of learning has not changed much 
even after so many years.
The classroom, the library, the top floor canteen, 
the picturesque skyline of the city, and 
the renowned alumni who have few peers.

They are agile, they are jovial,
someday this young batch would learn –
The journey to the summit of the Everest
is precarious, and danger lurks at every turn.

Dr. S N Banerjee has a great passion for travelling, photography and writing. His articles have featured in the recent issues of Cafe Dissensus and Muse India.
