The Butterfly
by Dr. Madhavi Godavarthy
Bookmark and Share
 

Toiling through
The larva night
The butterfly of hope
Arrives
To soar
To the red planet
 
Another mission
To space
After touching
The moon
 
Selfless struggle
Of scientists
Will win over
The God of war!

 
 
(Dedicated to the scientists at ISRO who have worked day and night for ‘India’s Space Mission to Mars’)
 
*The planet ‘Mars’ is named after the Roman God of War
