Compromise - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

When a lovable hornet meets a slender flower
She has memories of her visitor.
After a little lull she replies,
'You are very familiar my dear but don't hustle like earlier'.
In this cycle of birth and death
Who knows how many times they have met with different names and faces?
If we unveil this net of illusions and unleash the unlimited expectations
Then we could see the reality of the mysterious Universe.

To the poetess Susie.Gharib
