Clouds And Hearts - Poem by Roopa Menon

The Sun awoke
And dazzling rays shown
Reflecting on the golden wings
As two birds flew
To touch distant woods
The trees high up
And the grass below
Perched upon a branch
They watched the sky.
Under the water stream
There a small cloud stood
The birds flew to it.
“I make a castle of richness”
The male bird announced
And tried for his lady
But cloud refused to move
The lady then stepped in
And kissed the cloud
And made a beautiful heart.
Back in their nest
The birds watched
The heart sails in sky.
Next morning they saw
The sky full of hearts
One upon another
Not a castle of richness
But a castle of hearts
That reflected happily
In the stream called life.

    Happy hearts and happy birds
    Set sail on happy clouds'
    And made a castle of riches
    Lived in the stream of life
