the butterfly story

Location: Bangalore, Karnataka, India

through the mist, a colored hue
flickered at a whim, she flutter her wings
stripes and colors brightening her day
she wakes the flower with a kiss on his cheeks!

tender and fragile, she touches the petals
he sways at her music, dancing in the breeze!
vibrant orange rimmed her wings
orchid dark purple rings.

she sang and danced to his favorite tune
enjoying the breeze against her wings
and as he closes his eyes, poised
sinking in the love, she flies!

for this life is too short to stay
counted in moments, it has its pace
fluttering her wings she has to leave
across the horizon, where her heart is calm!

swati said...

as always you poured your heart.

sawan said...

Swati, at times all we could do is communicate. and yet we fail to do that for reasons known to us. all i could do now is express and believe that these expressions would win me my love one day. trust is all i have. gauge the depth of helplessness and you'll realize the pain.
