Butterfly - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

The wings of the butterflies in beautiful color

Children likes them so much as well as the grown ups
Their flying, their companions, their selection of flowers
All are beautiful to observe as a child's plays
They comes in groups and pairs and flies quite often
The rare scenery which we likes to see
We forget the tensions of life and also pains
That makes us the life miserable and conditioned
The bright, dim and and different colors they looks
More beautiful to see in dawn and near dusk
The nature's talent of creation is so precious
No one can question its total perfection
Alas! its longevity is so small and limited
The death is imminent only a full day
Still it performs well in its glory and pride
Exhibiting the talents throughout the life span
Though short and limited in a brief period
Butterflies are the wonders of world and nature
Just like the rainbows in the open sky we see.

    Hi Gangadharan Nair,

    Tagore has written,
    Butterflies have not years
    but days to live,
    Still still have time enough!

    Your lovely poem reminded me of the small poem by Tagore. Thank you.

    And their special attractions have brought death to many of them at the hands if collectors!

    That is why I try not to show myself off, lest I be euthanized and pinned in a museum case!

    All kidding aside, I enjoyed poem though I think butterflies all have ability to live for many days, even months in some cases.

    Enjoyed your poem on butterflies. We see these beautiful insects
    fly in an array of colors. There lives are short lived but so much is
    accomplished in this short span of life. Lighting upon flowers, trees
    and shrubbery all the day long to be gazed upon by humans.
