Small Things that make Heaven

Reading Time: 1 minute

This poem, writes Neelam, came to her as an inspiration in tumult time of Cauvery Water issue, which led to the outbreak of violence and arson, disrupting peace and security at large.

When you breathe on a flower

however slow, it takes another eternity

to remember the fragrant moist of rain

or you promise a pact of trust

in shadow and seasons to watch

the bloom, never again drought or wind.

You let small grains shift at base

so it could stand much stronger,

much longer for both of you.

Small things that make heaven

can’t be easily forgotten or

taken for ride, needs patience for time.
