Butterfly flies away

a poem by

Oriada Dajko

Butterfly as a whisper comes around
for a little child happiness is found,
he sees a colorful art of life.
She stays near the child
not afraid of being burnt
by the desire.
Is it a candle or a child?
Secondly, she will be burned.
Firstly, she will be admired.
She makes him feel the magic
and then she wants to fly away.
A child can’t wait
that hours become days
and butterfly returns again.
He will love only for today!
Once she will fly away,
the beauty in his eyes will be lost.
Soon he will learn that
beautiful creatures can’t be admired
when they stay under chains.

Come back to me, my little bee

a poem by

Madhivanan .

My child’s giggle along with elusive language
And subtle gestures were hard enough to judge
Nevertheless, without uttering a single word
He transported me into a joyful fantasy world

Where I’d forgotten all my sorrows that are deep
My child was a treasure; I’ve memories to keep
As he grew up, he flew away to get his life’s best
Just like, grown up birds never rest in their nest

Time is so brutal that it made my child forget me
Left alone, I crave for the voice of my sweet little bee
Life might have fetched him many special persons
But, It is I who love him perpetually with no reasons…

In-animated

a poem by

Pravin

Wretched doll I am, wallowing
In yesterday’s refuse.

School bus, singing children
Pass by; curious eyes.

I await to be chosen
By the next rag-picker.

Memory

a poem by

Swapna Gopinath

Fixed in a moment of agony
Of pain and shame and fear
Revisiting the moment
Regurgitating the vomit
Belonging to a sick soul
My body resists and recalls
To redeem myself is impossible
With breasts that’s grown fuller
With disturbed pangs of pleasure
The shame of his sin returns
Tormenting me, forcibly
Ageing skin and failing vision
Refuse to let go of the moment
Laughter clubs, yoga clinics
Myriad ways of escape
May be, a hand that feels the pain
Will fight the demons away… May be?
