Waves that became songs
A soft, fragrant, tiny flower
bloomed in night from bud.
Saw herself in a garden
full of prettiest blooms.
She tallied her white body
with their bodies full of colours,
her heart broke
she thought she was so bland!
All the flowers were smiling at her
with eyes full of love and softness.
She mistook their smile for taunt
and thought sadly why was she there!
A beautiful butterfly came flying
and softly settled on her petals.
Smiled sweetly and said, “Your colourless
body hides the most fragrant, sweet, soul.”
