Marigold - Poem by Ghanshyam Chandra Gupta


This happened a long time ago when I was but a child
Or maybe it did not happen at all
Perhaps it occurred in my dream only a few days ago
Or maybe it lingers from a previous incarnation

It was a single marigold flower
(Or was it a sunflower perhaps?)
It emerged directly from the earth with a long stem
And I kissed it and touched its dampness to my eyes

Again, I think it was a marigold of thousand petals
With a characteristic rich fragrance
And it asked me to remember it
And I remembered as best as I could.
