A solitary stunted bud
In a barren garden
Of repressed desires
Parched to the core
And in need of love
To rejuvenate its being
Blossomed at the very hint
Of the touch
Of the friendly West Wind
Trumpeting the arrival of Spring
In its seemingly eternal
If a single hint of breeze
Could bring to life
This long dead bud
What would an Eternal Spring
Do to it?
Caress it out of its
Fill it with fragrance?
Promise that it would never ever
Let autumn set in?
Or is it too early for the hopeful bud
To surmise the intent of Spring?
I love how the poem unfolds and leaves the reader with a question. It's always a pleasure to read your poems!

A lovely poem Asma, I love the title it sets the tone for this beautiful poem. The content is well thought out and gives a peaceful feel to it. Thankyou for such beauty Asma. A big (10) from me.---Melvina---
a nice juxtaposition of Spring and Autumn centering around the Bud, a very unique treatment of a very very philosophical thought, which has been so adequately described in the right language and feelings. the more i read the more i wish to read.thanx
This is amazing...the promise that the future holds has been painted in words through the story of a bud waiting in expectation of the coming spring (called eternal only to know that it will one day go away)
I love the touch of God in the poem; which takes the poem to a higher level and incvariably brings in the element of love and hope. In an age with all the right reasons to be depressed, your poems are a refreshing departure. A single line 'Of repressed desires' brings the poem right into the centre of our existence. Thanks for sharing
