once upon a time...


once upon a time
the sky bloomed
with stars guiding
once upon a time
there were rains
at the appointed time
once upon a time
the moonlight spread
evenly on all terrains
once upon a time
the flowers blossomed
the trees bore fruit
and everything in plenty
once upon a time
the earth moved on its axis
the way it should

now
when stars are hardly sighted
now
when there's no moonlight visible
now
when all we know are cyclonic storms
now
when we rarely get to see a flower smiling
now
when we eat fruit synthetically ripened
now
when the earth keeps jolting on its axis

will any believe my once upon a story?

O Love! thou makest all things even
