And She Keeps Humming the Song of Hope...

Written for Haiku Heights & OSI

Prompts - HH: Faith , OSI: Freedom

Faith in nice and good
Makes a cuckoo sing love, and
Sky sprays freedom


And She Keeps Humming the Song of Hope...

Myriad flowers
Enjoying the morning breeze
Dancing to the tune
Of singing birds
Suddenly get distracted
As the sound of
Fluttering wings of
A butterfly fills the air
The tempted ones
Shout in one voice,
“ Hey, look at us
You have many a choice,’
Butterfly smiles
And with a twinkle
Responds,” Yes, that’s
What I cherish most..
My freedom of choice
Within the confines
Of God’s wish, hey,
Let me wait for the signal..”,
And she keeps humming
The song of hope
That’s when a sunbeam
Strikes her colourful wings
Moving a little away
She leaps on it
And skids down
To fall in the lap
Of a blooming pink rose,
Ah! Isn’t he happy with the gift..
The hopeful red-one
Feels rotten and envious, curses
Both of them silently,
Looks around, no,
None has heard his mind
In a flash, he realizes
He has an absolute freedom
…yes, freedom to think
Whatever thoughts..
Good or bad...or still worse
That’s when the Butterfly turns
Looks at him and
Silently admires, thinking
“May be tomorrow morning,’
And she prays for him..
Both have exercised
Their freedom of thought
In those moments
Based on their own evolvement
In nature’s beautiful embrace..
World will become more beautiful
When Butterfly will be
Able to influence and
Help flower come out of
Envious thoughts, tomorrow
Hopefully, shining sunbeam will
Lead her there, indeed..
The beautiful world of happier thoughts
Deserves to expand, effortlessly…



  1. what a beautiful poem-story Ramesh...the beauty of nature spoken out, the flowers, the butterflies, yes, even them have feelings of wanting to be free, speaking like humans feel, and think like humans would have thought of...what a freedom they wish for...

    i felt like the butterfly, i felt like the flower, like the birds...really, I did...there is parallelism in my existence as with their existence in this world.

    i loved this poem!

  2. ah, the prayer of a butterfly, so lovely.

  3. "The beautiful world of happier thoughts
    Deserves to expand, effortlessly…"

    Yes. Excellent piece.

  4. Pyaara Dost,
    Good Afternoon!
    What a coincidence!I wrote a post on flowers,butterflies,birds and love!
    And here you've written a wonderful poem on the same subject!cool!
    I really enjoyed your beautiful poem,dost!
    Amazing verses!Sunday's creation!Wow!

  5. Wonderful...
    I loved the haiku..

    and the poem is sooo good..
    "As the sound of
    Fluttering wings of
    A butterfly fills the air"
    these lines are awesome :)

  6. Beautiful words and happy thoughts too!! You really are a great nature lover Rameshji!! Both the haiku and the poem do justice.

  7. A beautiful flow of thoughts in your poetic story!

  8. Each one is so lovingly penned. Thanks for your view into faith and freedom.

  9. I love butterflies, and every time I see one I think to myself, "How can people see this miraculous creature and not believe in God?" They are truly miracles on earth, and for me I guess you could say they are "faith with wings". Your words were so beautiful and uplifting.

  10. happier thoughts that you are giving us...thanks for that!

  11. Sounds all like music in my ears
