An enigmatic poem by Deeya that celebrates nature, in Different Truths.
Butterflies soak the sun radiating virgin dreams Butterflies soak the sun radiating virgin dreams on their wings colours descend from the morning sky myriad bees and wasps trumpets mysteries of the still air in touch-me-nots and marigolds
The swerving sky on the mouth of the gladiolus in the wintry sun luxuriate silence in this part of the woods a prelude to stories from brambles bushes of betrayal and lust
The Varuna and Agni conspire in these woods to unleash the fiery sun the tempestuous winds untamed sorrow of splitting veins and throbbing hearts
Numerous tales in supplication overarch in these forbidden lands
lost autumnal chants of crickets hedge-sparrows the wily gnats flitting across the piled rubbles with a sprite are now but a requiem to the dead save the lone whisperings of the troubled acacias…
