Is the flower the Archbishop of a cathedral

Called tree?


Squirrels, birds and insects visit

Its branches like compelled consciences

For a confession

To unload their chest, of echoes

Of the brutality they commit on fruits

The innocent citizens of the vegetable countries

The flower presides

Over the winged and unwinged creatures

Of creation and impart to their lives

The aesthetics of silence

Night is the contemplative mood

Of the garden and the garden

The dream of the night

As the garden lies serene in sleep

Under the stars

Of the dark blue night

It unfolds itself as a great civilization

Of symbols

Meadows of metaphors

Float in the depths of the leafy dream

Of a tiny bird gathered into its wings

In the quintessence of the branch-

In the hermitage of flowers

All colors lead to the destination of the saffron-

-Seshendra Sharma
