Caterpillars Around Me


I can see only
Caterpillars around me
Green red and black
Also in many colours
Running to settle
For a new metamorphosis
To become most beautiful butterfly
In a virtual competition
Running and jumping around me
Laughing at me
As I am not like them
Not a competitor
In between them.
I thought to enjoy
The race of caterpillars
The role play performed by them
May be in the role of
Students, teachers, administrators
Doctors or engineers
Or in many more roles
What I don't know
Standing at a distance.

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
