Theme: Love


Sitting close to the hedge
of our small flower garden
that my brother raised with care,
I welcome the early visitors,
the bees and the butterflies
moving in and out in joy
to gather honey for the day.

Honey bees with songs
on their lips and fangs at back
scared me to get closer,
but the delicate darlings -
the silent butterflies
caught my imagination;
I cupped my palms
to catch them with care
and let them later to fly off in the air.
The little butterflies in appreciation
coloured the fate line on my palms...

Several springs later
fate smiled on me,
and you lost your path
to fly into the small garden of mine
that I had nurtured in my heart,
you blinded me with love dusts
and for support I held on to you for ever...
