The Rape Of The Buds - Poem by Neera Lollbeeharry

Crimson petals strewn
on a carpet soft and green,
bleed in tears, silent.

A leafy awning
spreads its maternal embrace
to shield them from shame.

The buds are defiled
their full nudity exposed
to bold groping hands.

Heartless nature smiles
enjoying the ruination
of frail innocence.
