The bud was very happy

like a kid who did not know

the complexities of the world

It was swinging its head gleefully

with the delicate touch of the soothing breeze

like the mothers petting enthral the child in her lap

The bud grew up gradually and

 the baby flower opened up its petals

and witnessed the things happening around

alike the neo-natal baby opens its eyes

and looks around eagerly to see the world

It saw the moths, butterflies and

numerous insects thronged on there

who were moving encircling the flower

going up and down now & then

She had no attraction for the crowd at that time

But she was feeling an unique sensation in her body

She bloomed in to a flower and dreamt

someone would come to caress her

Her chemistry enthused her for a partner

She  waited and waited but no one turned up

Though she was a paragon of beauty

and her fragrance was enticing for reasons not known to her

She could not get any one in her embrace unluckily

When she was dazzling under the morning sun

Dew drops on the exquisite petals looked like tears

Rolling down the eyes. That was giving an impression

as if she was weeping silently for her loneliness

Life became a burden for the lovely creature

when she felt desolate and uncared for

Instead she consoled her with a hope

that one day the dreams would come true

and she would enjoy the most desirable companion

But the dreams do not come true always

Adding to her deep agony colours faded gradually

and scar of the time were distinctly visible

on her exquisite appearance day by day

The petals appeared pale and weak

and started falling down one by one

She lamented and questioned time and again

Living in plenty and looking extremely fabulous

if fails to captivate others attention

and could not become a point of attraction

What is the use of possessing such beauty?

Finally a blunt stem was seen left

 in the creeper to the utter surprise of the anxious beholders

who witnessed the sad demise

and perilous departure of an incredible life.

Ratnakar,  Fabulously written and expressed.  a piece of touch poetry that compares to very little else read so far.  For a moment I was sure you wear talking about me.  But I shall not give up on someone loving me for my heart is big and so is the world and one day my true love will find me, with a tear in his eye.  Tina
