DRAGONFLIES AND BUTTERFLIES

a poem by Drsudarsan Damodar Prasad, India

** THIS POEM IS DEDICATED TO ALL THE CHILDREN ,WHO DUE TO SOME MALADY, ARE UNABLE TO CHASE DRAGONFLIES AND BUTTERFLIES IN THE MORNING!. WISH A NEW DAWN OF HOPE TO ARRIVE IN THEIR LIVES ! ****

Dragon flies and butterflies,
Are up and early,
At work and play,
Along with the first sun beams-
Shafts of light,
Silvery cobwebs made of light!
Halos of another world,
Appear and disappear,
Dancing with the swaying leaves,
A picture of exquisite delight.

Fog and light,
Playing hide and seek,
Among the trees,
On the dew drenched,
Carpets of velvety green grass.

A wild flower’s cup,
Is full with the dewdrop.
Another big flower-
A nameless beauty,
Smiles coyly,
Longing for more!

Dragonflies and Butterflies,
Part their ways-
To seek their beloveds-
Amongst the choicest flowers.
One has a banded tail,
Long and taut,
Like the hunting tiger on the prowl.
The other has myriad eyes,
On its petal soft wings,
Like the peacock’s enchanting plumes.

One whirs like a chopper,
The other flitters,
And soars up like the flower petals,
Cast in the winds.

Seekers of honey,
Amidst the sap filled trees.
Ecstatic beloveds of ours-
Waiting with honey filled-
Chambers dark and moist.
Nectarine elixir,
Givers of infinite joy.

We take no notice-
Of the evil spiders,
Weaving mean nets,
For the errant bees,
To trap us and devour us,
Or the spear likes thorns,
Guarding our beloveds-
From sand paper tongues-
Of preying cattle.

We fly wild with joy,
Amongst our most precious,
Beloveds forever ,
At all times,
Shining with morning glories,
Our souls and hearts-
Intent on seeking love’s fresh faces,
And every morning beckons,
With new tales to tell.

Dragonflies and butterflies,
Are up and early,
At work and play,
And every morning beckons,
With new tales to tell!
