Odia Micropoetry: Dedicated to Lord Jagannath

I
---


ତୋ ଚକା ଆଖିରେ ଆଖି ମିଳାଇ 
କହିଛି ମୋର କେତେ ଦୁଖ 
ତୁ ଯେ ଶୁଣୁ ସବୁ ଚୁପ ବସି 
କେବେ ଦେବୁ ମୋତେ ସୁଖ....?



II
---

ଭକ୍ତର ଭଗବାନ ତୁ 
ହେ କଳା ଠାକୁର 
କଣ ମାଗିବି ତୋତେ? 

ତୁ ତ ଜାଣିଛୁ ସବୁ କଥା 
ମୋ ମନର....



III

ସେହି ଚକା ଆଖି 
ସେହି ଅଧା ଗଢା ମୂର୍ତ୍ତି 
ଜୀବନକୁ ଗଡାଇ ନିଏ 
ଇଚ୍ଛାକୁ କରେ ପୂର୍ତ୍ତି ।

English Translation :

I
-------

My eyes meet Your round eyes
And I tell You all my woes
You sit quietly and listen to everything
When will You give me happiness...?


II
-------

You are the devotee's Lord
Oh Black Lord
What should I ask from You?

You already know of all the things
In my mind.......


III
-------

Those round eyes
That half-molded idol
Takes life forward
Fulfilling all wishes

  5. ବାସ୍ତବିକ ଚମତ୍କାର୍ କବିତାଟିଏ. ପ୍ରଶଂସା ନ କରି ରହିପାରୁନି. ସାହିତ୍ୟର ଜୟଯାତ୍ରା ଜାରି ରହୁ. ଜୟ ଜଗନ୍ନାଥ. ଜୟ ଓଡିଆ. ଜୟ ଓଡିଶା.
