After One Sitting - Poem by Golaka behari Acharya

Flying and flying
looking and looking
searching and searching
whirling and whirling
the butterfly
sat on a flower.

The breeze felt lovely
the sky more azure
the flower
bright and scented
it felt all life there.

Now he broods.
Discerns what is good
What is bad too.
Where did I wrong?
Is there pain after death.
What should I do?

    Flying and Flying
    Looking and Looking
    Searching and Searching
    Whirling and Whirling
    I love how you have described the movement of the butterfly before it lands.
