In The Name Of…~by Balachandran Nair


 

 

In The Name Of…

Wanting to present a rose
On HER birthday
I reached garden.
About to pluck,
Rose’s face reddened.
It’s in love with sepal,
I turned away smiling.
I reached a daffodil
It’s anther n filament bowed
They’re in love with
Their stigma n style
I turned away smiling.
I reached a bogenvilla
It’s stemen n ovula were
In secret affair, engaged.
They waved me away
I turned away smiling.
I silently looked around
Knew all flowers hate me
As all’re in love with
One or other parts of its own
Bees, butterflies knew it
And helped them to sustain.
I, human ugly, wanted to harm
In the name of love,
In the name of respect,
In the name remembrance
And….in the name of God!
