Treasure Island

Akhila Rajesh


A Butterfly Flaps Inside


A visitor from heaven
Has made me its home
A butterfly flaps inside…

Nestling inside me
Stretching its wings
A butterfly flaps inside…

Listening to my voice
Speaking in silent words
A butterfly flaps inside…

Swaying to the rhythm of my breath
Tapping to the beats of my heart
A butterfly flaps inside…

One with my soul
Whole of my consciousness
A butterfly flaps inside…
