Under the blue sky
In the brilliant sunshine
Stood a Damsel in Red.
From a deep emotion
Rose in me a question
Is she shedding tears of blood?

Over the ether
Floated two replies,

Yes she bleeds, maybe
For humankind’s misery.
No said the other, her brilliant red
Is a joy to beholders
spreading genuine happiness.

Divergent points of view.
In throes of death,
Shedding tears of blood
She dances in gay abandon.
For She knows deep inside
When spring comes calling by
She will be born anew.
She has mastered the art of letting go
A complete and utter surrender.
There’s a lesson in her life
For those who wish to ponder!




In peace! Nadeem.
