I Find It Smiling Heartily..

Oh, how it blooms
Beautiful Rose
Diligently nurtured
By an amateur,
With love and passion
Just for the sake of it
For sheer happiness
Would a professional
Have given the Rose
A better life...
I am happy to find it
Smiling heartily
for the butterfly is
Innocently unaware
and doesn't want to know too...

  4. Beautiful. Lovely pace and rhythm.

  5. Yeah, nicely Ramesh, I love the idea of a rose smiling heartily!

  6. It delights us poor mortals to give nature and voice and who can say if we are mistaken. Wanting them to make us more akin to them. What a pleasure to read this.
