Seed of Eternity


The sky is serene
clouds look disturbed, lame,
floating in stupor
yet steer life in vastness
the cuckoo dreams
and blames its voice
somewhere a bud sprouts
and lazily waits
for a special moment
a butterfly’s advent
its beauty enhances
in phosphorescence
a seed lies dormant
frail with thirst on parched shingle
to get quenched with rain
dreads premature death
uncertainty kills
lo! the heavens bless
seed gapes for breath
soon enough it’s drenched
it shoots up as green
a new life begins
prevails perpetuity
in seed of eternity!
