Targeted Operation

They came—- they searched my home

And they found a love letter

From one of my very old books

And torn to shreds, rose flower!

That got crushed under a long boot

A list of household things

from my old diary

of the last days of the month

that couldn’t be bought;

this list was ironically laughed at

and torn into pieces;

my genuine brilliant dated prose

was taken into custody!

I’m imprisoned now

For the crime of not having

Any ammo for self defense

My children are witnesses against me

And so are my neighbors

There was a beautiful orange and golden butterfly.  Beautiful black dots added more charm to it. Its beauty was gripping

The Butterfly was very selfish, cruel and stone hear-ted. It used to gasp the fragrance and sweetness of beautiful flowers.

One fine day on a peaceful morning, the butterfly flew as its daily routine in search of flowers.

It saw a garden which was full of flowers .The selfish Butterfly felt very happy. It started flying from one flower to the other. The butterfly saw a beautiful pink rose with diamond dew drops on its soft velvety petals. The butterfly had never seen such a lovely flower before.  It said to itself “Oh! What a divine flower it is!”  It didn’t sit on it.  The butterfly postponed it till next morning.

Next morning it went again. It hovered around the flower all day.

The flower observing its madness asked,

Flower said: “Oh! Cruel Butterfly, why don’t you gasp my sweet scent?”

Butterfly: “Oh! Beautiful divine rose! I want to become pure like you.” It was in love with that beautiful rose. It decided to propose the rose the next morning.

Next morning, very happily flew to meet its love.

But someone had plucked crushed and thrown it on the ground.

The Butterfly sat near the dead body of its lovely rose

the broken heart Butterfly cried utterly and said …………!

“Oh! Beautiful Rose …. I truly loved you. Beautiful Rose you will be in my heart till my heart stops! Oh! Beautiful Rose I love you forever!

The Butterfly was in deep grief.  It couldn’t bear the woe. It died. The sky also shed tears. It rained heavily on lovers’ dead bodies.

Butterfly and Rose met in the Heaven.

That was a moment of love—!

It secretly tiptoed in my heart

 

It overshadowed the gloomy nights,

Of whose fragrance, dislikes changed

To fragrant likes; Quiet eyes gleamed!

 

It was not a lengthy journey

It was not a wounded heart

It was a moment of love—! 

I was flouting to pieces —-

 Changing from glum to elation

Do not know how———

All of a sudden———– 

It engrossed in my thinking

It was not sheer chastisement

                                       It was a tear of awareness—!

That moment added to a century

 

That was a moment of love —!
