My Butterfly

by Sajitha Nair
(India)

I was sitting in my garden one day,
Saw a butterfly coming my way,
I opened my palm
And to my surprise !!
The butterfly landed
Consumed in cries!!

She had span of a day,
But wished to bath in sun everyday,
"Just some days more
before lying on the floor
Wishing to sing and dance on the sea saw."

I gazed up high to the sky
With a tear in my eye
"Take a day from my life
And let her feathers fly...."

But then I realized
When is my wish harmonized??
She will go and come
To live a life again as a worm..
