An evocative poem about nature by Ritambhara, exclusively for Different Truths.
The first bloom of the season
The blossoming flowers in their utmost beauty
The beauty that is to be cherished, a feast to the eyes
A feast for the squandering bees
O’ what a beautiful day it is, quells the little bee
Beaming around in utter joy
The little bee is there to fill every heart with merriment
A new wave of joy spreads among those in a twilight
They see their lovely past in the innocence of the young ones
The innocence that makes them flip-flop from one flower to the other
Dancing in merriment the little bees invoke the same joy in others
These wandering souls make others dance with them
Not only the bees, but the birds and tiny tots join the merriment
O’ darling spring why don’t you stay forever?
The spring replies, change is the only constant in nature you must understand
Learn to dance in the rain, the snow or the simmering sun
Merriment is a choice you shouldn’t ignore
Avail every chance to enjoy and see the beauty in all its might.
