Artist's Description

Back Drop:
18 Aug 2008 … The conflict has also rendered 158000 people homeless, according to ……………………………..WASHINGTON (CNN)

Too many people are becoming homeless for different reasons in Bangladesh and across the world.
_
Few lines form a love poem_
“…
At day’s end, like hush of dew
Comes evening. A hawk wipes the scent of sunlight fom its wings.
When earth’s colors fade and some pale design is sketched,
Then glimmering fireflies paint in the story.
All birds come home, all rivers, all of this life’s tasks finished.
Only darkness remains, as I sit there face to face with Banalata Sen.
From Banalata Sen By— Jibanananda Das
Translated by Clinton B. Seely.

Footnote:
*I was trying to see this poem from a homeless point of view. In “The Birds Nest” I see “darkness” as conflict, war, occupation, invading, global worming, natural digester, earthquake, tsunami, flood, — poverty, hunger, social injustice…(list could be more long)
-also a world, where a birds nest is not so safe.
But I have hope, see the lights…
