Theme: Liking




A night blooming plant
Nicknamed by some
'The fragrance of night'
I am so emotionally attached,
It's an antiquity of life.

She is a cute and pretty girl
Her looks and demeanour
Often remind me
Of my reminiscent past.
While in a cheerful mood
I asked her once
What she knew of rajnigandha.
Her reply was prompt and simple
Rajnigandha! It's a 'paan masala'
Of a famous brand.

Stupefied for a moment
What an antithesis!
But I recovered fast
And liked her simplicity
And innocence,
May God bless her.
Being simple and straight
At least makes life
Less complicated,
Easier and happier.
