A prayer...


Bad boy,
I tell the god
like a small child
who tells the stone
s/he is tripped against.
In no time i smile
like the little one on
spotting a colorful butterfly
or a puppy or a kitten
with wetness hanging
on the eye corners
and damp scars on the cheeks...

    We become children in presence of God. Naughty child can say anything without offence. Nicely expressed in the poem. Thank you. (Report) Reply
