Petals of Life


Making garlands of frangipani
Laughing without a care
She ran as the wind caught her hair
What bliss childhood was


Then he came along
Tucked the flower behind her ear
They walked hand in hand
Oblivious to the world

Decades have passed

She notices the petals strewn along
The white and yellow drying
She knows the end is near

It's a lovely poem... when love comes and goes to a lovely maiden. :-) How are you, Zephyr? How fast time flies, doesn't it? We're coming fast to the end of the year. :-) And so does it end my year in o3 too. lol Will be seeing you around. Always take care. And may God bless you and your loved ones.

"laughing without a care" - i suppose that line describes childhood. Thats eth time when we have no inhibitions and we are ourselves!!!!

Hey Rp,
Thanks!
Childhood is the most beautiful thing… I tried to capture it in a few words :)

As for churning out more posts… naya ghar, naya josh :D

And I feel so excited I don’t have to ctrl+c everything I write coz I know its not gonna eat up stuff.. it was a habit to save everything I wrote there.. this is so liberating!!!!!!
