An insect’s query


“I laugh

I dance

I sing

the songs.


On the soft

green branch

I stand firmly

with four legs.


But an unanswered question is

in my head –

Who says –

I am just an insect?


See my hands are

in pose.

Wings are

half spreaded of course.


My little mind is developing

a new life concept.

Who says –

I am just an insect?


Though, I know

my life is too short.

Yet, I’m filled it

with colorful art.


I live happily

without having any expect.

Who says –

I am just an insect?


I’ve captured

the flowing sands of time

and have mixed it with cement

for a perfect wine.


Wine which may give

a wonderful moment ceaseless.

Who says –

I am just an insect?


Sometimes I’m racing

with the waves

to search the destination

of my self respect.


My existence in this world isn’t

by mistake.

Who says –

I am just an insect?”









The Frozen Blackberry



“An unknown sadness

and madness prevails.

The heart bereft from

inner peace.


A peculiar prong

spreads on the bushy path.

Which offers violent weapon to a person

and snatches his all artistic means.


On the other hand-


The frozen blackberry

is eagerly awaiting for sunbathe.

Its branch shakes

with wavy wind increase.


So, search the door of calmness

in nature’s lap.

You’ll feel a fresh warmth of love

which is itself a masterpiece.”
